SW Ontario Tensions ease

Well, CKCO, the Kitchener CTV affiliate, actually covered the growing Native unrest in Southwestern Ontario fairly well tonight on the 11:30 news.

And, I'll give credit to some of the Native leaders down there in Caledonia... they stepped up to the plate, and offered an appology to the family of the beaten man. They have also requested that any remaining protesters vacate the construction site immediately. I think that was a great move, and might actually serve to defuse the situation somewhat.

However, the root issue at hand still has yet to be dealt with... the issuing of "building permits" by the "Haudenosaunee Development Institute". This illegal assertion of authority over the Grand River basin by some (not all) within the Six Nations still needs to be addressed by the various levels of the Government. Unless this root issue is brought to light and stopped, the residents of the seven or so affected ridings in Southwestern Ontario are subject to being held hostage at a moments notice... and that is totally unacceptable.

Trust me... this issue is going to be raised in these ridings... some of which currently have Liberal MPP's...

    This could be the issue along the Haldimand Tract.

    Check out today's Record.

    ..an apology..how trite..

    How about delivering up these yoyo's to the law so that they can be prosecuted?

    I'm afraid it's more complicated than that - Harper HAS to deal with the federal side of it. The longer he waits the more it costs Ontario in policing fees.

    Unfortunately, the leaders of the First Nations have been okay, it's the rambunctious youth that probably don't even understand the whole issue - just want to be trouble makers.

    Harper, please, please, please - deal with it.

    In all fairness - considering Ipperwash, politicians, etc. are leary and perhaps too careful.

    The Federal government has stated in writing that the Haldimand tract was properly handed over to the government years ago and the government is willing to meet them before a judge to prove it. The occupiers rejected this and continue to thumb their noses at the law. Unless the Ontario government calls them in, the Federal can legally do no more.
