To aboriginal lawbreakers... "Live and don't learn."
Mohawk activist Shawn Brant was ordered to stand trial on nine criminal charges before walking out of a Dundas Street West courthouse and into the arms of friends and loved ones Thursday.Of course, the fact that Brant has previously broken his bail conditions, not once, but twice... apparently doesn't figure into this decision.
Brant, who has spent the last two months in custody, was released on strict bail conditions including not to participate in any demonstrations or protests and not to leave his house for the next 30 days without police permission.
Sadly, none of this gets mentioned in the media. At the CBC website they refer to Brant, not as a law-breaking thug... but as a "Mohawk crusader."
Brant was also ordered to stay away from the Deseronto Road quarry currently occupied by fellow protesters and to report daily to his mother Deanna Brant and family friend Winston Maracle, both of whom put up $50,000 each to the court in collateral to secure his release.Don't worry... he'll be back.
