The Federation of Sovereign Indigenous First Nations (FSIN) has stated it’s concerned with ‘systemic racism’ in the Saskatchewan Ministry of Environment’s Conservation Field Services. It comes after another reported incident involving a treaty hunter and a Saskatchewan Conservation Officer (CO).

In a media release, the FSIN said Canoe Lake Cree First Nation band member Darcy Iron says he was hunting with his two young children near Humboldt, when he was approached by a CO. The officer checked the weapons belonging to Iron and left the scene shortly after. A few moments after the encounter, Iron and his children began to drive back to the city so the children could use the washroom before they were pulled over by the same officer. Iron’s guns were seized and he was detained in the CO’s vehicle for over an hour while his children were left alone in his vehicle.
