Preview Clip

RCMP arrested dozens of people in Rexton, New Brunswick after a protest over shale gas development turned violent when officers began enforcing an injunction to end the demonstration. Molotov cocktails were thrown at officers and five police vehicles were torched. Donald Sanipass of the Elsipogtog (ell-see-BOOK'-took) First Nation didn't attend the protest, but came to see the damage after the situation died down. The 34-year-old said the RCMP response was inappropriate. (The Mounties said at least 40 people were arrested for firearms offences, threats, intimidation, mischief and violating a court-ordered injunction.)
