Six Nations community members issued a resounding no to a Brantford developer’s plan to build a $500 million project on lands under claim in Brantford. King and Benton wants to build a 4.7 million sq. ft. industrial park and retail power centre at the corner of Oak Park Rd. and Hwy. 403, the site of a former industrial gravel pit.
“No more development,” said Six Nations resident Kelly Powless. “What are we supposed to be, happy?” said Six Nations resident Robert Douglas. He said if the developer didn’t heed Six Nations’ concerns, “we can deal with this the same way we dealt with it in Caledonia.”
