The RCMP in Nova Scotia say a Mi’kmaq fishing boat that was found underwater on Dec. 26 had drill holes in the hull.

But the Mounties have stopped short of saying that those holes were put there deliberately.

“The RCMP Forensic Identification Section (FIS) conducted an examination on the boat and it appeared to have holes in the hull,” said Cpl. Lisa Croteau, public relations officer for the RCMP in Halifax in an email to APTN.

“The holes are believed to have been caused by a drill.”

Ashton Bernard is the captain of the April and Brothers and is from the Eskasoni First Nation in Nova Scotia.
