Two Navy mem­bers linked to Canada Day in­ci­dent

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

A spokesper­son for the mil­i­tary has con­firmed that two mem­bers of the Navy were in­volved in a con­fronta­tion at an in­dige­nous cer­e­mony in Hal­i­fax on Canada Day. Or­ga­nizer Re­becca Moore says dozens of peo­ple gath­ered in Hal­i­fax on Satur­day around a statue of the city’s founder Ed­ward Corn­wal­lis to mourn atroc­i­ties com­mit­ted against In­dige­nous peo­ples. Moore says a small group of men wear­ing black polo shirts with yel­low pip­ing — one of them car­ry­ing a Red En­sign Flag — sang “God Save the Queen” as they walked to­ward the cer­e­mony.
