MISSION- RCMP in Mission, B.C., say about 30 witnesses have provided statements in an investigation involving the driver of a pickup truck who allegedly hit four people participating in a march related to residential schools. The department says in a tweet that its serious crime team has been working on the case since the incident occurred in early June and the statements are part of a report to Crown counsel to determine if any charges will be laid. However, it says putting together such a report “doesn’t happen overnight” and that “90 days is pretty quick.” A 77-year-old man turned himself in to police two days after some members of the Cheam First Nation group were allegedly struck while marching along a highway to draw attention to survivors of residential schools.
