The Grand River Land Claim - The Cold Reality

The people of Ontario really have no idea what's at stake in regards to the land claim being made by the "Haudenosaunee Development Institute". They're laying claim to six miles on either side of the Grand River, and demanding that ALL development be either halted, and/or approved by them via the issuing of a permit.

Alright folks, let's put it down in some more clearly understandable terms... does anyone care to even take a guess how many BILLIONS of dollars we're talking about, or how many lives are directly affected by this issue?

The following list is just an off the top of my head partial list of the institutions and buisness that they are laying full claim to...

The Grand River Hospital and Regional Cancer Centre
St. Mary's Hospital
Cambridge Memorial Hospital
RIM (yes, the makers of the Blackberry)
The Toyota Manufacturing Plant, Cambridge
The University of Waterloo
Laurier University
The ENTIRE City of Waterloo, including all homes and businesses
The ENTIRE City of Kitchener, including all homes and businesses
The ENTIRE City of Cambridge, including all homes and businesses
The ENTIRE City of Brantford, including all homes and businesses
The ENTIRE Town of Paris, including all homes and businesses
The ENTIRE Town of Calediona, including all homes and businesses
Highway 401 between exits 268 and 286
Highway 403 between exits 27 and 41

Any questions?

Make sure your MPP's and candidates know what's really at stake here, and put it forward at each and every debate, send letters to the editor, and DEMAND that the duly elected government of Ontario bring this issue to the forefront, AND DEAL WITH IT.

    You really should have thought about that before you stole the land and put valuable improvements on it. Under the law, people who receive stolen property have very limited rights.

    If you have billions and billions at stake and it effects 800,000 people, then a good faith settlement offer would be billions and billions and effect a huge amount of land.

    Canada is mostly empty land. A fair trade could be proposed and this thing settled. Make a fair offer, something like 1/2 the Crown Land in the province and half of the Provincial and Federal Parks.

    Or, quit whining and take the medicine for your past stealing.

    To CC - I have a suggestion. Why don't you disable the option of posting anonymously. That way, if the above sort of mindless drivel keeps getting posted, at least the individual will have to identify himself (even with a nom de plume).

    Aboriginals surrendered. Treaties are by definition surrender documents since no one would sign a Treaty if they had the upper hand - the Crown was being magnanimous, what a mistake.
