A local farmer says he should have been shot by RCMP outside a Site C open house in Dawson Creek.

In an interview with the Globe and Mail, Terry Hadland says the man shot by the RCMP created a diversion so he could get away.  Hadland says, “He stepped up and took that shot for me, that’s for sure.”

July 16, the RCMP in Dawson Creek responded to the Site C open house at the Pomeroy Hotel after receiving complaints of a public disturbance.
