RCMP Opened Fire Against Unarmed Ts’Peten Defenders in British Columbia

In 1995 The NDP government in British Columbia authorized a $5 million dollar paramilitary operation against the Ts’Peten defenders (the largest paramilitary operation in Canadian history).

The defence was over a piece of historic Secwepemc land utilized for an annual Sundance. After being harassed by the white ranchers for several weeks, and after several attempts to negotiate by Secwepemc elder William Ignace (Wolverine), The RCMP opened fire on unarmed defenders, utilizing landmines, Bison armoured personnel carriers, and other explosives to put down the 24 defenders of the Secwepemc Sundance camp.
