Haldimand County Mayor Marie Trainer says Caledonia residents have been watching apprehensively over the last few days as cars with Quebec and American licence plates have driven onto the occupied site, swelling the number of people there.
An aboriginal spokeswoman said Thursday morning that a small group of about 15 people planned to meet Friday at the Caledonia site that Six Nations members have occupied for more than a year and that they will say prayers that demonstrators across the country would be kept safe. (Edit: Yeah that explains why Terrorist reinforcements from Quebec and the US are coming.. so 15 of you can pray)
Caledonia is on high alert but Trainer said everyone was hoping the day would go by without any of the violent clashes the occupation has sparked in the past. “I’m sure there will be a couple of spots that are hot but I’m hoping ours isn’t,” Trainer said. “I’m hoping clear minds will prevail.”
