Wet'suwet'en arrests spark debate about Indigenous relations with RCMP

Protestors say the RCMP used excessive force, but the RCMP say the protestors themselves were aggressive.

RCMP officials are now reviewing their conduct during the arrests of 14 people who violated an injunction to let Coastal Gaslink begin work on a natural gas pipeline.

Police say they are looking at footage captured by their drones, body cameras and helicopters to determine if officers responded appropriately.

"I appreciate for those directly involved with the police at the barricade, it was an emotional situation," said RCMP Criminal Operations Commissioner Eric Stubbs.
