NAPANEE, Ont. — Shawn Brant has turned himself in to the Ontario Provincial Police a week after he led Tyendinaga Mohawk demonstrators to blockade railways and roads in eastern Ontario for the National Day of Action.
The lanky 43-year-old arrived at the Napanee OPP station at 10 a.m. on Thursday, as he had promised to do on the weekend. He told waiting media that he was a man of honour, from a people of honour. (Edit: a people of honor perhaps, but a man of honor? please)
Half an hour earlier, a line of cars ferrying Mr. Brant, his lawyer, his wife and supporters, left the quarry that Mohawk protesters have been occupying since March.
