HALIFAX — The chief of a Mi’kmaq First Nation says an angry group of non-Indigenous people damaged lobster pounds holding his people’s catch and burned a vehicle belonging to an Indigenous harvester on Tuesday night.

Video being circulated on social media shows a van being set alight in West Pubnico, N.S., during one of the tense encounters.

Chief Mike Sack of Sipekne’katik First Nation says fires and damage occurred at two locations, one in West Pubnico and the other in Weymouth, and lobster caught by the Indigenous fishers was removed from lobster pounds.

He says one of the Indigenous harvester’s vans was burned at the lobster pound while he was in the area.
