Heiltsuk First Nation protest RCMP officer conduct

United in fear and pain, they've come together to stand against what they say is a threat within the RCMP detachment in Bella Bella. They're hesitant to call the RCMP. They, you know, it leads to mistrust, you know, of the RCMP. That mistrust stems from social media posts discovered on Facebook under the name Adrian Rubenstein. These posts were unacceptable and, you know, absolutely racist in this small community. It didn't take long for people to learn Rubenstein's true identity. Constable Adrienne Robinson of the Bella Bella RCMP, our community was feeling. You know, some fear, you know, certainly with, you know, having an RCMP with these types of racist attitudes. 1 profile picture from 2014 features Robinson in a period military costume sitting behind the Union Jack. Below he comments. Now what's to be done about those pesky natives stirring up trouble in the colonies, Whether or not these posts were made yesterday, you know, last week or, or 10 years ago. He had them. On his Facebook publicly for everybody to see. But the Celtic Nation claims time has kept the RCMP from launching a code of conduct investigation that would automatically take Robinson off active duty because the posts were made before he joined the RCMP. The BCRCMP issuing this statement. We are committed to finding the right balance between addressing the concerns through a fair process and the importance of community having trust and confidence in their police officers and the RCMP. We had asked the question around the vetting process of, you know, of this constable and why this was not flagged, you know, with, with his screening. The Helsinki Nation says it's been told a transfer is underway but could take up to 90 days. Robinson will continue to serve the community under the supervision of another officer. They put CNS on the community to say that we're not going to, you know, accept this. Leaders say this renews calls to collaborate with the RCMP when it comes to hiring. This protest has to be held is a failure of the RCMP to protect this community from past and current trauma and ongoing harm. John Hua. Global News.
