As part of a last ditch effort to find something he can say he did during his reign as Premier, Dalton McGuinty is once again promising to close coal fired hydro plants including Canada’s largest in Nanticoke. This was one of his many promises during the 2003 election campaign.

Once in office, Dalton ignored his promises to the people in order to focus on the things that really matter to him such as creating new taxes, banning a breed of dog, trying to get junk food out of elementary schools, making the problems in Caledonia much worse, spending Millions on a pre determined Ipperwash Inquiry to justify his critisism of former Premier Mike Harris, and most importantly creating new taxes.

During the election, the closing of coal fired plants sounded like a good way to get the vote of environmentalists no doubt but it proved to be very poorly researched and extremely impractical. At the Nanticoke plant alone, there would be 600 jobs lost, and the price of our hydro would skyrocket due to low supply and high demand, so the plan was scrapped.

Here’s some more of the propaganda posted last year by Terrorists. In this installment they pat themselves on the back for a well carried out attack on an innocent town and remind us how violent they can be if subjected to the laws of the Country in which we all live. I will of course provide commentary where needed. What is in bold and bracketed has been added by me and was not part of the original release.

The heated confrontation at Six Nations Reserve in Ontario, Canada, widened and deepened in the past week while at the same time showing sign of progress toward resolution. (By Six Ntions Reserve they mean Douglas Creek Estates which is in fact NOT part of the Six Nations Reserve and is being illegally occupied by thugs) The deeply rooted Native sentiment on the land and against any type of physical aggression against their own people has stiffened the resolve of Six Nations clan mothers, chiefs and warriors after a bungling assault by police forces fanciful that they could arrest the ”trouble-makers” and lay low the protesters’ encampment. (Enforce the law as is their job)

It was not to be, and within half a day Canada was reminded that the peoples of the old Haudenosaunee Confederacy unite under stress and self-defend in ways most ingenious, straightforward and stark. (Such as digging up public highways, illegally baricading said public highway, assaulting citizens, assaulting police officers, attempting to murder a police officer..  ingenious? sounds criminal to me) By day’s end, roads around the encampment site were blockaded, bridges were temporarily shut down (I guess this person forgot to mention the bridge they burned to the ground. Is that one temporarily out of service too?) and across southern Ontario rail lines were immediately threatened so that important train runs between Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal were suspended.

Canadian authorities know, but still do forget, that when they deal with Six Nations people – particularly if the populous Mohawks are engaged – police assaults can trigger an intense, decentralized response among warrior societies. (Terrorist Attack is the term) Just the protest at the railroad lines by Tyendinega Mohawks 350 kilometers (217.4 miles) away ”delayed service for thousands of passengers yesterday, and shipment of goods worth tens of millions of dollars,” according to the Toronto Star newspaper. The railways protest ended April 22 after only a day’s paralysis; but as this edition goes to press, the Kahnawake Mohawk warrior society is holding the Mercier Bridge in Montreal at bay, while Akwesasne residents leaflet motorists on the international bridge at Cornwall. (littering is a crime) Both of these bridges have been shut down by Mohawks before.

The warrior response is not always pretty or romantic. Often it bubbles with anger nearly impossible to contain. But it is a real and organic action/reaction based on a long historical memory. (it’s crime being commited by out of control overgrown, weaponized cry babies who can’t take no for an answer) While one local paper described them as ”the so-called clan mothers,” the circle of elder women who hold wampum and select chiefs and other officials for Six Nations longhouses can still cause great movement among their peoples.

For those wondering who or what a “Timmer” is, he’s a supporter of the DCE Terrorists who is well known in the area for showing up at public events, sticking a camcorder in peoples faces until someone asks him to not record them, taunting them until they tell him off, and then posting that part of the video online with claims that he was yelled at by people simply for supporting Native Rights.

For all of his big talk, in real life Timmer is a Male Nurse named Timothy Sywyk of Brantford. It seems he’s gotten himself in a bit of trouble at work.. Courtesy of www.CaledoniaWakeupCall.com

MPP Toby Barrett

Over the years, unexpected issues rise to provincial significance. It is the responsibility of elected representatives to confront these new issues as they arise, based on unwavering principles and beliefs. When faced with difficult issues, government must always remember that the rule of law is not negotiable.

The rule of law is of particular interest along the Grand River and across sand country. Illegal land seizures, the illegal tobacco trade, and the burden of government regulation have done more than cripple our area’s economy – they have caused many to question whether we are all governed by the same set of laws.

To be clear, politicians do not tell the police or bureaucrats how to conduct day-to-day operations. There are other ways that government can demonstrate its commitment – or lack thereof – to laws.

Last summer, after purchasing the occupied land at Caledonia, Premier McGuinty sent taxpayer-funded lawyers to court to then legalize the land occupation. They argued that since Premier McGuinty’s government welcomed protesters on the occupied site, there should be no injunction against their presence. In my view, this was an easy-fix by a government with a weak commitment to the rule of law.

(more…)

What does the Canadian Taxpayers Federation who represent your rights as taxpayers think about this “occupation” and our Government offering your money to Terrorists?

Here’s one brief quote from a recent statement

The federal government has made an offer of $125 million to Ontario’s Six Nations to resolve four outstanding land claims. This offer sends a message to natives everywhere in Canada that the rule of law will not be enforced and that occupations will end with a cash offer. ”

There’s an old saying, ‘if you break it, you’ve bought it.’ This rings true locally, as recent government policies have disrupted our economy on our area’s sand plain and along the Grand River.

At a time of year when construction and farming should be booming, a shroud of uncertainty has been created. Last week, at a meeting of 40 Haldimand County builders, it was reported some area property values have dropped 20 per cent. To the west, sand plain tobacco farmers learned that no hope is in sight – with this year’s crop 43 per cent smaller than last.

Combined with endless rules and regulations and red tape and forms to fill out, farmers and business people of all stripes are up against an increasingly hostile government. Regrettably, this compounds the trend – closed car dealerships, shuttered downtowns, and an out migration for work.

On May 29, in the Ontario Legislature, I listed a selection of the local jobs that have been lost under our current Ontario Government. In the Norfolk area, there are at least 284 manufacturing jobs down the drain while government focuses its priorities elsewhere.

In recent years, communities along the Grand River saw impressive growth – economically, and in population. Now, due to the threat of illegal land seizures, construction crews are a rare sight within six miles of the Grand. With no evidence of a government plan to deal with land seizures and occupations, construction crews – and their economic spin-offs – are largely looking elsewhere.

In addition to the failed approach to illegal land seizures, area residents continue to worry about Premier McGuinty’s promise to throw 600 people out of work at OPG Nanticoke. I frequently hear people asking why government would take another 600 jobs, after watching economic development slide to a halt.

Ron Curley is a caring, gentle man whose strong spirit is running low these days. He’s in a tough spot — trying to draw customers to his new restaurant in Ohsweken — a place many associate with protesters since disputes about aboriginal land claims over a former Caledonia subdivision escalated last summer.

Tourism has plummeted — about 65 per cent from two years ago, says Janelle Sandy, assistant manager of Six Nations Tourism. “We’ve been hit hard,” she says, adding that higher gas prices and the Canadian dollar are also keeping Canadian and American tourists away. Last year, there were eight or nine tour buses booked for Six Nations attractions from one tourism partner. This year there’s none from that operator, she says.

It’s disheartening, says his assistant manager and niece, Andrea Curley, about the trouble in Caledonia. Racism came out so fast, she says.

Edit: Please.. Here we go with the racism again. Tourism is down for Natives because of problems Natives created so this makes the tourists racist?

At the time no mainstream media had the fortitude to report the truth, but it can be revisited now with the appropriate changes made 

Mohawk Nation at Kahnawake – (Onerahtóhkha/April 20, 2006)

With talks abruptly ending in this manner, it became apparent that the Government of Canada was not interested in seeking a peaceful resolve to this issue and have elected a violent imposition of their will. (Enforcement of the law during an illegal occupation)

Caledonia resident thrown to ground taking down flag

Originally posted August 10th, 2006.

Stacey Hauser says she was slammed to the ground by an OPP officer because she was doing what was best for her community and country.

The resident of Caledonia was upset Tuesday evening after hearing that native protesters were ignoring a judge’s order that negotiations must stop until natives obey an earlier order to leave the occupied Douglas Creek Estates subdivision.

But what pushed her over the edge was seeing the image of a protester desecrating a Canadian flag by cutting the maple leaf out the middle.

“That is the utmost disrespect,” she said, standing in her back yard below a clothes line where a red T-shirt from Caledonia’s Canada Day celebrations hung like a flag. In her front yard, there are real Canadian flags. One hangs from her garage, two over her front steps and one from her car.

About 30 Unity and original Five Nations flags flap at the entrance to the subdivision. Hauser said she was sick of seeing those. She was angry with the government and OPP for their lack of action, so she and her husband decided to join hundreds of other disgruntled residents at the blockade that evening.

OPP officers stood between them and three flags erected by protesters. During the evening, she and other residents tried to loosen the knots of a native Unity flag.

Natives hooked up a fire hose to a hydrant close to the entrance to the subdivision and started spraying the crowd. The police moved their positions and Hauser said she leaped for the chance for payback. She got the flag down and threw it to the ground. It was retribution, symbolism, she said.

“In the course of doing that, I saw somebody out of the corner of my eye and that next thing I knew I was on the ground,” she said. “My purse was one way, I was another way.”

She tried to get up and find her glasses that flew off her face and was tackled again, she said, adding that her husband, Mark, tried to come to her aid and was punched in the face.

She was handcuffed and taken to an OPP satellite station in Caledonia. She said she was searched, handcuffed, put in a police van and later driven to Cayuga in an OPP SUV.

“It was a flag and they treated me like I stood there pointing a gun at people,” she said. “An older man, a Second World War veteran, was attacked Sunday night, the police didn’t do anything but they attacked me for taking down a flag.”

Brantford Expositor

The recent national day of protest passed without very much disruption of our comfortable lives here in Canada.The blockage of a few highways and a CN Rail line could have been repeated dozens of times, all across the country. We aboriginals of this land have certainly suffered enough injustice. The history books are full of examples, for those who will open them.

The reason so many of the protests were fairly peaceful may be because of Six Nations’ example in Caledonia.

When Janie Jamieson and Dawn Smith led their young group of Six Nations people to reclaim the former Douglas Creek Estates site in February 2006, they did not take weapons. They only took their knowledge of Six Nations history and the Haldimand Proclamation – and a whole lot of courage.

By Gary McHale – www.CaledoniaWakeupCall.com

Mr. Dave Hartless, a Hamilton Police Officer, who lives next to DCE has demonstrated true courage in the face of our modern society’s penchant for personal gain.

It would be easy for Mr. Hartless not to take a stand and easy for him to turn his back on the injustices that have occurred in Caledonia. He could have decided that his police career was more important than Truth and Justice. He could have decided that obeying orders was more important than his Oath of Office – the same Oath OPP officers take. He could have decided that there is a greater good and stand by while neighbours were victimized.

Dave is a Hero. He would not say this himself and that is also the quality of a Hero.

Mr. Hartless is one of the few people I have meet in my life who sees that Truth, Justice and Equality are more than just words. They are the substance that make Nations Great, the glue that binds people together and what can bring about lasting peace.

Mr. Hartless has had his family attacked, his 3 daughters were targeted, but he will not remain silent. [Link]

The OPP and Governments have learned through Ipperwash how to intimidate and pressure non-Native people to remain silent. They do this because both the OPP and every level of Government refuse to deal with the criminal activities of a small group of Native Protesters.

It is easier for the OPP to arrest peaceful non-Natives trying to raise a Canadian Flag than to arrest armed Native Protesters who have publicly stated there will be bloodshed.

It is easier for Fantino to try to get Hartless fired because Hartless has morals and principles that Fantino cannot possibly understand. Fantino has no problem allowing his officers to violate their Oath of Office, violate the Constitution, violate residents’ Rights & Freedoms and even violate basic human compassion towards others.

When OPP Officers can stand by and watch residents be assaulted, while collecting time and a half, then basic human compassion toward your fellow man has been lost.

In a Democracy the LAST LINE OF DEFENCE against a Police State is for individuals, like Hartless, to take a Stand. When the police and Government know full well that an individual is willing to pay any price for Truth, Justice and Equality then Democracy wins – WE ALL WIN.

After learning of the recent recommendation by Haldimand Council on how to settle land claims, a resident of Caledonia decided to write to Diane Finley with her thoughts on the situation as is the right of every constituent.

A suprising response was received not from Diane Finley, but from Haldimand CAO Bill Pearce who was insturmental in forcing the hand of Mayor Trainer to recently read a statement which ignores completely the responsibility of the Liberal Government and the OPP in Haldimand, and lays everything at the feet of Stephen Harper.

The resident had sent a copy of her email to Ms. Finley to Haldimand officials as the topic of land claims in Haldimand certainly involves them. A very nice courtesy in a society where many are content to talk about people behind their back. Here is the email she received this morning from Mr. Pearce:

Ms. (Caledonia Citizen):  Could you please remove me from your e-mail list since I have absolutely no interest in hearing of your views on First Nations related issues in Haldimand County.

Haldimand County has finally decided to take a stand on the terrorist occupation which has had them in it’s grip since February 2006.

Unfortunately they have chosen to stand beside the terrorists, the corrupt McGuinty government who worked very hard to ensure the death of law and order in Haldimand by purchasing the land in question at our expense to take jurisdiction over it out of the hands of the courts, and the Feds, and the OPP who have long abandoned the concept of being police officers and now stand as bodyguards for the thugs who occupy DCE.

It is the assertion of Haldimand Council today that none of those responsible for the situation they now find themselves in are to blame for it. Somehow it all falls on Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The answer according to todays press release is to appease the Terrorists by putting pressure on the Federal Government to expedite land claims specifically in Haldimand County. Let’s throw on some of those special glasses that Council must be wearing and look at what today’s press release says.

UPDATE July 15 2007: Friday the 13th was a great success as usual for Dover and there are no accounts of any Mohawks trying to disrupt the festivities.  

Enough people have been asking me and coming here via searches related to Port Dover and Friday the 13th that I think it’s time to update what we know right now officially.

I’ve spent enough time in the town to know that the gossip mill is running wild with rumors of a Terrorist blockade of the 13th. All over Norfolk County people are talking about it and want to know the facts, but the truth is that at this point we don’t yet have any facts to substantiate a claim that they will blockade Port Dover.

If any official news or credible information comes our way, Caledonia Wakeup Call will report on it as we near the date.

It’s easy to panic and decide to steer clear of the town in case something should happen but it’s very important to keep a level head about this and think of the logistics. There were rumors strong enough to make front page news of the Simcoe Reformer that Natives may try to blockade the Marina on June 29th and it did not happen. The statistics are that an average of 100,000 people descend on Port Dover for Friday the 13th and guesstimates are putting that number as high as 250,000 for this one because it’s in July.

If you have plans to travel to Dover for the 13th to celebrate, don’t cancel them. Expect the usual delays getting into town with that kind of traffic flowing but it’s logistically unlikely that a group of Native Thugs are going to honestly believe they can prevent up to a quarter of a million people from entering the town by standing on a road and claiming they own it for a day.

Stay tuned throughout the week as we will update you with any breaking news, and should anything actually happen, Caledonia Wakeup Call will provide extensive coverage.
