Mathew Alainga was born in 1968. His interview contains information about the shooting of his father’s dogs, which he witnessed as a child in 1973. The dogs were chased under the house by an RCMP officer. Mathew’s relatives ran into the house because they feared they would be shot at. After the shooting, his father shot the tires of a police car. Mathew mentions the authority still held by RCMP officers in communities today although he recognizes the services they provide.
