Nova Scotia lobster facility fire ‘suspect’, Canadian minister says
(Reuters) – Canadian Public Safety Minister Bill Blair on Saturday called the blaze that destroyed a lobster facility in southwestern Nova Scotia “suspect,” adding he had authorized more of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to keep the peace in the region where fishing tensions have intensified. .
“I am deeply concerned about the suspicious fire and I have confidence that investigators will find the answers they need to hold those responsible to account,” Blair said in a statement.
“I have now approved a request from the Attorney General of Nova Scotia to increase the presence of RCMP contract resources as needed in this jurisdiction in order to keep the peace,” he added.
Earlier today, the blaze – also labeled a suspect by police – led to a man being admitted to hospital with life-threatening injuries, RCMP said.
