The chief of Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation is calling for RCMP to release dashcam video and hold an independent investigation after a violent encounter with RCMP in Fort McMurray, Alta., during which he alleges he was beaten up and his wife was “manhandled.” Chief Allan Adam, who’s held the position since 2007, gave a detailed breakdown and provided eyewitness video of his March encounter with police during an emotional press conference Saturday. “Every time our people do wrong, the RCMP, they always seem to use excessive force — and that has to stop,” he said. “Enough is enough.”
