Situation resolved in Wiikwemkoong

By Rosalind Russell – The shelter-in-place has been lifted in Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory.

That announcement on social media came from Ogimaa Kwe Rachel Manitowabi.

She writes that the situation has come to a peaceful end, with no one harmed.

Manitowabi says a community member who was at the centre of the search has turned himself in to the authorities safely and peacefully.

She’s thanking Wiikwemkoong Tribal Police Services, Ontario Provincial Police and various staff who were all involved in the coordinated effort.

The shelter-in-place order was put in place on Wednesday.
