Shawn Brant: "Dissident" Mohawk Group

That's the word the CBC has used to describe him... and I think the shoe fits.

Shawn Brant is NOT helpful to anyone's cause. I think native leaders would do well to distance themselves from him as much as possible, as many have already done. He has indicated that he will turn himself in to the OPP at the end of the day.

I hope our judges are smart enough to keep him locked up.

(and just to be clear... I'm using the "terrorism" tag below in relation to Shawn Brant alone, NOT the native protesters in general)

    Any group who compells business's to close shop, hinder the nations freedom to move, advertises their ability to exercise leathal force , and threatens physical violence is a terrorist organization.

    No Canadian reguardless of nation , colour ,sex , or creed should be excempt of penalty when freedoms or lives are threatened by any extremist element.

    The laws angainst such action needs to be enforced , and if violence ensues the military should be engaged to enforce conditions of peace. These insurrecting criminals need to be brought to justice.

    I appreciate that there are probably legitimate issues that the native groups are trying to fight for. However, when their cause threatens to shut down major transportation routes, it becomes a war. Because of this, all funding and support for these groups should be stopped and anyone who has been affected by their actions should be permitted to sue them for compensation.

    Either we are a united Canada or not.

    The trouble is that we live in a multi-tiered justice system. The proof of that is in Caledonia.
