Reclamation site supporters rushed to put out bales of hay that were set on fire at the site Monday night, by a group of youths that sources said have virtually “taken over the site,” despite concerns raised by adult supporters of the land reclamation.

Monday’s fire is just one in a series of incidents that have caused long time adult supporters to leave as clanmothers are unable to control youth at the site.

In addition to the fire, a young man is recovering from neck injuries after he was struck with a crowbar during an internal scuffle at the land reclamation site last Tuesday.

Monday night OPP contacted Reclamation adult supporters when shortly after 8 p.m. a fire was spotted on the site.

One site supporter said the young men set the bales on fire because, “the OPP were looking at us.”
