In 2008, Marge Hudson was sent north to Bloodvein First Nation in Manitoba to investigate allegations that one of her RCMP colleagues had sexually assaulted a teen girl.
She says a supervisor called her into the Winnipeg office and told her she had better go — “you know what we want, eh?”
The implication of that meeting was clear, says Hudson, who is from Berens River First Nation: she believed he wanted her to solve the case by clearing the Mountie of any wrongdoing.
A spokesperson for the Manitoba RCMP said it wasn’t aware of Hudson’s allegations. The spokesperson said the investigation was timely, “very thorough,” and highlighted comments made at the time commending the force’s “very admirable job of investigating.”
