    “There are six police cars that are on fire,” Susan Levi-Peters, a former chief of the Elsipogtog First Nation, said in a telephone interview on Thursday morning. The cruisers were set alight after the arrest of Elsipogtog chief Arren Sock and several council members who were trying to intervene in the dispute.
    If you read it you would know that the FIRST NATIONS people protesting, set fire to the cop cars. It wasn't spontaneous combustion.

      I assumed the First Nations people somehow set fire to the police cars.

      But it isn't totally clear to me that the cars were set fire due to Molotov cocktails being thrown at them, or in some other manner.   Maybe the MC, if they existed at all, were thrown at the police, and maybe they were thrown at the cars, and maybe they were thrown off somewhere else.  It's really not clear to me.

        on the losing end of this, as they are...would I hope that somehow?..ah never mind, I keep remembering that the FBI Cointelpro undercover officers burned the Bank of America...and surely the police would never now do such a thing....good to know.

        They're Canadians and they are nice...or maybe not.....or never were...
