‘They are from the First Nation which doesn’t necessarily mean that they are First Nations’

The Manitoulin-Espanola OPP continues to investigate a brawl that broke out on Friday, Sept. 14 at Manitoulin Secondary School.

As of Sept. 20, six people have been charged — one adult and five youths — all of whom are from M’Chigeeng First Nation.

Community Safety Officer Cst. Marie Ford explained that this situation can be complicated as youth are involved and can not be identified under the provisions of the Youth Criminal Justice Act.

“They are from the First Nation which doesn’t necessarily mean that they are First Nations (people), and I’m not saying that they all are or they all aren’t, but it’s difficult because we’re dealing with young people so we’re obviously not naming anybody,” said Ford.
