Amazing how quickly after the general public found out about the CN Rail video and we saw the reaction to this terrorist threat that the pro-Native side jumped into overdrive to spin the video as anything but a video created by the pro-Native side.

Outside the fact that the video was teaching people to disrupt rail service, which is exactly what the Native protesters want on June 29, we can trace back who was the first to post and encourage others to view the video.

I alerted CSIS & CN Police within a couple of hours after seeing a link to the video on the Native Reclamation web site. I first found the video posted on this Native Reclamation site on Monday, May 14, posted at about 4:19 pm by Timmer. There are no comments by anyone on this site that this video was unacceptable.

The video was just re-posted on the Native Reclamation site by phreakgeek, a pro-Native person, who adds to each of his posts the phrase, “The CowBoy Killer… The only good CowBoy is a dead CowBoy… Skenna…Kariwiio… Kastatsensera…”

It is interesting that the leadership within the Native community is justifying the anger and frustration that would lead people to create the video. The video is only teaching people to do exactly what many Native leaders have openly called for – a nation wide disruption of rail service.

It wasn’t until after the national media started covering the story and people started to realize just how serious this video was that the pro-Native group started their Spin on the video. Prior to this, the video was posted on several pro-Native sites include the Reclamation Site and people were encouraged to watch the video.

A Manitoba chief isn’t backing down from tough talk about blocking rail lines next month to protest slow progress on First Nations land claims.

“… There are only two ways of dealing with the white man. One, either you pick up a gun, or you stand between the white man and his money,” Terry Nelson of the Roseau River First Nation told CTV Newsnet’s Mike Duffy Live on Tuesday.

“Your attitude is we’re living off your good graces. This is our land, this is our property and that’s the way we look at it,” he said.

Indian people are starting to say, “‘Look, we are not going to settle land claims by sitting in front of a panel of immigrants to our land and they decide whether our land rights are proper or not’,” Nelson said.

In Ontario, Chief Angus Toulouse said it’s possible natives could blockade the 401 highway, one of Canada’s busiest, on the eve of the Canada Day long weekend

“Deseronto extends a warm welcome to all visitors and commuters. Deseronto is a small town with heart, friendly people who greet you with a smile.”   www.deseronto.ca

Despite the enticing advertising copy found on its website Deseronto seems neither welcoming or to have much of a heart today after its Deputy Clerk & Treasurer, Bryan Brooks, called Merlyn Kinrade to tell the former Royal Canadian Navy veteran of the Korean War that the town council had voted to revoke permission to use the town’s Lions Hall for a planned law and order workshop. 

According to Mr. Brooks, Deseronto council decided to it didn’t want the workshop because the OPP are “doing a great job”

Just as we went to Brantford, we will come to Deseronto one day soon with or without your ‘permission.’

A video posted on YouTube offering detailed instructions for disrupting train traffic has triggered investigations by the police forces for
Canada’s two main rail lines, CP and CN.

The 3½-minute video surfaced on the Internet this week. The video was filmed at night showing a person standing over a train track. The person provides a step-by-step guide to setting off the red emergency lights that tell train conductors to stop immediately.

Mark Hallman, a spokesman for CN Rail, said the measures outlined in the video are extremely dangerous and urged YouTube to pull the video.

Canadians want two things when it comes to the treatment of aboriginals. The first is respect for the principle that no one is above the law. The second is that land claims must be fairly resolved and a way found to address high rates of aboriginal crime, unemployment, poverty, addiction, disease, illiteracy and suicide.

The first principle — no one is above the law — means aboriginals don’t get to shut down rail lines, & hold innocent communities hostage, as has been going on in Caledonia for 15 months, due to gutlessness by federal and provincial politicians.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper and every premier need to make this clear — and back it up with military and police force. It’s time for Canadians to become impatient, and demand action. Once and for all.

As an anonymous Internet video offered fresh tips on railway sabotage, the country’s top native chief made an impassioned call for help to contain growing anger over stolen land and crippling poverty.  Phil Fontaine, head of the Assembly of First Nations, says decades of fruitless talks with the federal government have done little to right past wrongs. He directly reached out to Canadians on Tuesday for help to pressure Ottawa for real change – before threatened blockades turn deadly.

Indian Affairs Minister Jim Prentice stressed that he’ll soon move to speed up land-claim talks that take an average of 13 years. “Someone is going to be hurt,” Prentice said outside the Commons.

People in Ontario who want to file a complaint against police will be able to go to an independent civilian body instead of having to take their grievance to the local chief of police, Attorney General Michael Bryant said Tuesday. A public review of the current process by Patrick LeSage, the former chief justice of the Ontario Superior Court, found many people were put off by the prospect of lodging an official complaint about police to the local chief, Bryant said.

An independent police review director will screen complaints from the public, toss out those without merit and decide how to handle the rest. The Canadian Civil Liberties Association called the changes a step in the right direction, but said the legislation did not go far enough because police could still end up investigating complaints against themselves.
