-- TYENDINAGA MOHAWK TERRITORY -- The installation of a new police building here has been delayed “until further notice,” after a group of band members set up a blockade Tuesday to protest its arrival.Another stunning victory for aboriginal freedom fighters.
Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte officials were preparing to have a 4,635-square-foot building shipped from a Hamilton-area manufacturer this week and put together on a gravel pit on York Road, just west of Quinte Mohawk School.
But a group of about 50 people began squatting at the site Tuesday afternoon, vowing to block officials from entering to install a building they feel the community was not consulted about.
The band is contributing close to $980,000 toward its costs, with the final $900,000 coming from the provincial and federal government.

The Brants went ahead and erected a building on the property.*
Their business failed within one year and none of the $430,000 in loans was repaid.
