Fire destroys shack at DCE

Posted: November 6, 2007 in Caledonia, DCE, Headlines, Natives

A DCE Spokesperson has announced that the run down shack at the entrance of DCE will be rebuilt this weekend after fire destroyed it Tuesday night.

Hazel Hill described the fire as ”vandalism” and “an attack on Kanonhstaton (Edit: It’s spelled DCE Hazel) by Canadians who have disturbed the peace that Six Nations has been working so diligently to preserve.”

Arson is suspected, and the racist ranting and accusations by Hazel have begun. Naturally she neglects to mention the fire started in 2006 of a model home on DCE when 2 Native factions disagreed about who would occupy it.
