A Terrace, B.C., man who was once a gay wedding trailblazer is now under an RCMP investigation for a possible hate crime after posting on social media that the “only good Indian is a dead Indian.”
Terrace RCMP said Thursday an investigation is under way into the comment posted by Howard Boake on the web page of the local Terrace Standard newspaper. The RCMP said the investigation was triggered on Tuesday after they received a complaint from a “concerned citizen” over the comment.
Boake wrote on Facebook that, “the only good Indian is a dead Indian…Let have open season on em (sic).”
RCMP Const. Angela Rabut said the investigation is exploring whether there is a public safety component to the online comment.
“First and foremost is public safety. Is the public safe? We are going to make sure of that,” said Rabut.
