A bomb threat made against the Wet’suwet’en and Tyendinaga Mohawks comes during escalating discussions of violence among Canada’s far-right, whose latest obsession is the non-violent Indigenous sovereignty movement that has dominated headlines for weeks.
“You and your punk friends, the Mohawk warriors, need to call off the blockades,” reads an email sent on Feb. 26 to addresses associated with the Wet’suwet’en and Tyendinaga township.
“If you don’t, you will find a bomb in your mailbox, and your parents will be in danger.
“This is a threat, you are on notice.”
The email address used to send the threat is linked to a recently suspended Twitter account, according to Anti-Racist Canada, a collective that tracks hate and extremism.
