Chalk up another victory for Dalton McGuinty and the PC Brigade...
Reinforcing the oh-so-familiar Liberal position that in Ontario, there is one set of laws for aboriginals and another set for the rest of us, the OPP arrested two men as they approached the disputed and occupied land in Caledonia.
Bear in mind that these men were arrested for simply approaching taxpayer owned land, with the sole intent of putting a Canadian flag on display... the same thing that the aboriginal contingent occupying the land was doing.
McHale was arrested along with Mark Vandermaas of London, by the Ontario Provincial Police as they approached the property waving Canadian flags.Contrast the Liberals sliding scale of justice with the position of provincial Conservative Leader John Tory.
CTV's Joel Bowey said the men intended to post the Canadian flag across the street from where aboriginal flags are currently flying.
John Tory said the Liberals should refuse to negotiate with Six Nations as long as they remain on the disputed land.
There should be "one set of rules" for everyone, Tory said. While Six Nations protesters are allowed to fly their flags on the occupied land, residents who tried to put up Canadian flags near the land recently were threatened with arrest, Tory said.
"This just breeds disrespect for the law," he said. "It breeds a lot of tension and anxiety that I think is unnecessary."
