OTTAWA — With the threat of native rail and road blockades looming, the Assembly of First Nations and the RCMP have signed a protocol aimed at ensuring protests don’t turn ugly.Surrounded by the scent of burning sweetgrass, AFN national chief Phil Fontaine and interim RCMP commissioner Beverly Busson hailed the pact as key to maintaining good relations between natives and the Mounties.

“The purpose of this protocol is to establish trusting and reciprocal relationships among the parties with the goal of addressing issues of mutual concern and preventing crisis situations from arising in First Nations communities and resolving any crises that may arise at the earliest possible opportunity,” says the text of the agreement.

Both Fontaine and Busson said they are hopeful that the national day of action on June 29 will be a peaceful way for Canadians to gain a better understanding of native issues.
