Christina Taylor, secretary and treasurer at Riverview, said when board members first witnessed the vandalism act, they immediately called the Ontario Provincial Police in Napanee.I got nuthin'.
"But they told us to contact the Tyendinaga Police as the cemetery actually sits on (Tyendinaga Mohawk) land," said Taylor.
"The officer there said they would knock on doors and investigate, hoping to find out who knocked down all those old headstones."

Yeah... you mean the police department that's fighting a losing war against its own citizenry?
TYENDINAGA MOHAWK TERRITORY - The chief for the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte is hoping that a court-ordered injunction issued by a superior court judge will be enough to ensure the safe delivery and installation of the new Mohawk Police station today.See... when the Mohawks aren't shutting down Customs posts... or blocking Canada's busiest four-lane highway... they're busy shitting in their own nest...
The court order, issued by Justice Richard Byers on Tuesday, is aimed at preventing staunch opposers of the long-anticipated building from unlawfully interfering with, blocking or causing any delay in the delivery and installation of the $1.4-million modular structure.
Chief Donald Maracle said that this would be the third attempt made to deliver the prefabricated building to the York Road site. Two previous attempts to have the building erected on the reserve were blocked by protesters who mounted roadblocks and staked out the site.Good grief.
He said those two failed efforts cost the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte band council about $584,000. Maracle said the matter was hauled into court as a last resort to avert any additional expenses.
"It is currently two years behind schedule," Maracle said. "We had to take some measure to stop wasting money. The (band) council had fears that the same situation would unfold again."
