    Canadian MPs held an emergency debate Monday evening to discuss the deepening tensions between Indigenous and non-Indigenous fishers in Nova Scotia over a M’ikmaq “moderate livelihood” fishery. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said during the hours-long debate in the House of Commons that his government “strongly condemns” violence toward the Mi’kmaq community. Trudeau said the community has a treaty right to fish “without being subjected to threats or racism.” Meanwhile, the Member of Parliament for West Nova Chris D’Entremont made an impassioned plea, telling Canadians “please don’t paint my riding as racist.” D’Entremont said the majority of people in the riding, where tensions have escalated over a Mi’kmaw “moderate livelihood” lobster fisher, are “scared” and “worried about what’s happening in their communities.” For more info, please go to Subscribe to Global News Channel HERE: Like Global News on Facebook HERE: Follow Global News on Twitter HERE: Follow Global News on Instagram HERE: #NovaScotia #CdnPoli #JustinTrudeau #MarshallDecision #Mikmaq #GlobalNews
