Protesters Set Up 2nd Camp At Museum

Protesters Set Up 2nd Camp

WINNIPEG - The removal of a blockade at Winnipeg‘s Brady Road Landfill went smoothly on Tuesday but some protesters say pressure tactics will continue.

The blockade was set up on July 6th after Manitoba Premier Heather Stefanson said the province would not search the Prairie Green Landfill for the remains of two slain Indigenous women.

Demonstrators appear to be maintaining their camp at the Brady while also setting up another one by the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.

A temporary injunction forbidding the blocking of the main road to Brady was issued Friday but police say they waited until Tuesday to enforce it because emotions were running high.
