Suddenly McGuinty's in control?

UPDATE: Details on MARCH for FREEDOM
**************************

TORONTO -- Six Nations protesters are calling on the province to stop a rally they say could spark a “volatile situation” on the former housing development aboriginals have occupied in Caledonia, Ont., since February.
Sure, maybe David Peterson can work some of that old black magic that, well... accomplished bupkis. That underwhelming result was due no doubt, in no small part, to Mr. Petersons reputation for fairness and impartiality.
David Peterson, who the province appointed to begin negotiations in the dispute, said he doubts anyone will take the rally seriously. “There are a lot of wackos in society,” he said. “It’s important not to give them too much credibility.”
Meanwhile, back at the disputed land, cultural dissonance is the undisputed king. Apparently white society's concept of irony has no aboriginal equivalent.
Hazel Hill, spokesperson for the aboriginal occupiers, said the governing Liberals need to step in and stop the rally before it creates a “volatile situation.”

“They have to deal with it,” she said. “This isn’t public land . . . It’s not optional to have rallies.”
Oh Hazel... stop please, yer killin' me.

Once again the OPP & the government will run to the Natives when called only to get their "ass kicked" when the Natives are finished with them.

Ipperwash was patients & silent & 16 years later NOTHING has changed

Anyone who is thinking of attending the 'rally' needs to be aware that

- The Haudenosaunee of Six Nations occupy the land legally. The injunction was 'stayed' by the court on August 24, and the provincial government stated that "It is our belief that they are not there unlawfully." Somehow, Gary McHale seems to have missed this fact, or he's intentionally lying about it.

- The Haudenosaunee Confederacy elders, Chiefs and Clan Mothers are the true leaders of the reclamation, and fly the purple wampum flag of the Confederacy. All Haudenosaunee men are warriors and also fly the red unity flag. The Warrior Society as an organization is not involved. Contrary to Gary McHales portrayal on his website, criminals are NOT in charge of the site.

The Six Nation has stolen the lands and has made a mockery of the land registry system. See Court documents shown at http://www.citizensofcaledonia.ca/Documentation_Court.htm, which proves the signing of the lands and transfer of ownership. To this date the Six Nations have used and still use terror tactics on the local residence. They have no legal right to ownership of any lands as all lands come under the federal Indian acts and therefore belong to the Canadians Government, which again is the public. Therefore under the same misguided information that they have blatantly used we the Canadian Public can use the same stance and say that the Indian reserves do not actually belong to the six nations but to the Canadian Public.

Okay, in words of one syllable or less for all of those too dense or too pig-headed to get it - the land is owned by the province. It is PUBLIC land, yet natives refuse to allow any but their own to use it. There is absolutely no reason why ANYONE, no matter what their ethnicity, should not be allowed free use of it. If they have nothing to hide and truly want this issue settled, the natives would welcome the attention this march will bring to their supposed cause.
That is what the march is about.
(Sorry, the occasional big word crept in there. My education and knowledge getting in the way again).

i'm sure most reasonable folk can appreciate the irony of seizing land, burning down a hydro transformer station and a bridge, digging up the main road in town... and then running & hiding behind the wily "white mans" law.

what is the aboriginal word for irony anyway?

So if you are with some friends standing on provincial land, and someone says, "It is our belief that they are not there unlawfully", then the land becomes yours. Sweet!

Let me get this right......in a country where all are to be equal under the law, some people (the non natives) are causing trouble when they dare to meet on land which they not the natives have paid hard earned tax money to buy. Sounds right equal to me. We farm and wish the government would offer us the sweet deal the natives apear to have gotten. We could pocket the money, and then tell those who bought it to get lost while we continue to use the land for our own benefit. When are Canadians and those individuals who pass themselves off as politicians going to wake up and stand up for Canadians! No one group should have a more equal status than others, and that is the way it is at the moment. I am waiting for a non native to end up in court on some charge and use as his difence....."I want equal treatment with the natives!"
