Mi'kmaq activist says she's disappointed at lack of consequences for 'Proud Boys'
A Mi'kmaq activist says she's disappointed at the lack of consequences for five members of the military who disrupted a Mi'kmaq ceremony in downtown Halifax on Canada Day.
The navy says there will be no criminal charges against the so-called ``Proud Boys'', although the four who are still in the forces remain on an unspecified term of probation and must adhere to unspecified conditions.
Rebecca Thomas, who was at the Canada Day ceremony, says she would have liked to have seen a restorative justice process implemented so the servicemen would have faced the community they wronged.
Thomas, who is also Halifax's poet laureate, wonders whether the punishment would have been as lenient had the service members interrupted a Roman Catholic mass or a Remembrance Day ceremony.
