DESERONTO, Ont. (CP) – Mohawk protester Shawn Brant says his supporters will be armed to defend themselves if police try to keep them from blocking Highway 401 and the CN rail line near Deseronto, in eastern Ontario. Both are targets for Friday’s aboriginal day of action, along with Highway 2.

Brant says commuters between Toronto and Montreal can expect major delays in both directions on the 401 over the 24 hours starting at midnight or earlier.

Provincial police have already gathered in the nearby city of Napanee.

Brant says the time has passed for marches to educate Canadians about native poverty and suicide.

He says militant Mohawks in his area and in other parts of the country will take a stronger stand to demand change now.
