METEGHAN – An Indigenous band councillor and two fishermen are facing charges in relation to tensions that erupted on the water after a Mi’kmaq First Nation launched a self-regulated fishery in southwestern Nova Scotia.

Thirty-four-year-old Brandon Alexander Maloney is facing charges of unsafe operation of a vessel in relation to a Sept. 20 incident in the St. Marys Bay.

At the time, Maloney was fisheries manager for Sipekne’katik First Nation, but he has since stepped down after being elected to band council on Nov. 3.

Police have also charged 26-year-old Shaquest India Miller of Yarmouth County with the same offence, in relation to an Oct. 12 incident in St. Marys Bay.
