"Don't Pay Royalties to HDI" - Premier McGuinty

Mr. McGuinty, that's one statement I can support you on. Of course, I wanted you to make that clear statement during the election... but I knew you were too afraid of the protesters to do that.

Now, here's hoping you'll stick to those strong words, and finally do something about this ongoing rebellion in our midst.

A helpful graphic, taken from elements in today's National Post story (the print edition), to remind everyone of what we're really talking about here... and attempt to retake what is now the economic heartland of Southwestern Ontario.

I'm not saying they don't have some validity to their claim... I'm just saying that there's no way we can give up Canada's claim to the whole thing... that's all.

    The issue as I understand it is that the HDI is attempting to sidestep the negotiating process - something which not only does not have the support of the Premier, it also doesn't have the support of many of the Six Nations.

    The problem is that McGuinty is giving no support to the developers that are being intimidated by the HDI.

    It isn't a question of what Canada wants. It is only a question of law.

    Or conflict.

    Either way, as David Crombie said, "It is not that the land claims will be settled and everything will go back the way it was before. It won't: We are in a new era."

    I think the communities along the Grand will go for upholding the law instead of conflict, even if the province can't bring itself to do it. The people have to decide for themselves.
