On May 22, 2006, control systems at the hydro transformer station located on Argyle Street South, just south of the protesters’ barricade, were purposefully destroyed and set on fire by participants in the protest causing over $l million in damages and power failure throughout Haldimand County and Norfolk County for periods of time ranging from 3 to 48 hours. The act was recorded on security equipment installed at the site and the perpetrators were known to the OPP – no arrests or warants issued so far.

At the time the OPP refused to protect the hydro transformer station and during the attack on the hydro station the OPP did not respond to the emergency. Six Nations Police were no where to be found and fire trucks were stopped by Native Protesters.

June 4, 2006, after the OPP had refused Hydro One’s request to provide policing of the Caledonia transformer station, a 20 year old student, William Cowan, who had been hired by a private security firm to guard the transformer station, was swarmed by a number of the protesters who smashed the security car while he was inside the vehicle, threatened him with death if he did not leave, then put gasoline on the car, lit it on fire and entirely destroyed the vehicle.

On July 7th OPP SWAT team entered Native Lands in Caledonia to remove acetylene torches the natives had placed at the base of Hydro Towers. We spoke to a long standing resident of Caledonia who told us that he was the one who phoned the OPP to report the torches. He did this after several residents noticed the torches and questioned why Natives would want these torches so close to the towers.
