OTTAWA - The Green Party of Canada denounces the RCMP’s unjustified use of force against peaceful protestors at Fairy Creek, Vancouver Island. “The right to peaceful protest is a fundamental tenet of our democracy, a Charter right, and must be protected by the government and respected by its agencies, including the RCMP,” said Green Party justice critic Dyanoosh Youssefi. “This right is particularly salient at a time when continued logging and extraction both threaten the future of our planet and undermine Indigenous claims to their traditional lands.”
