Just when you think that the likes of Extortionists Floyd and Ruby Montour can’t get any more ridiculous, a story like this comes along.The Brantford Expositor May 20, 2008
Conflict has risen another notch at the construction site of a hotel repeatedly protested by Six Nations activists in the city’s northwest, with the sudden appearance of signs forbidding entrance to the property by anyone from a particular native organization.
Members of an activist (Edit: Extortionist.. some day the media will get it right) group led by Floyd and Ruby Montour say they want authorities to investigate as “hate literature” signs erected at the site of the delayed Hampton Inn Hotel and a development by Kingspan Group LLP beside it on Fen Ridge Court and Oak Park Road in the northwest business.
Floyd Montour and other protesters arrived around 6 a.m. Tuesday at the site of the delayed Hampton Inn Hotel at Oak Park Road and Fen Ridge Court to find four identical signs posted on the property. (Edit: Then they made time to return to the site in Cayuga that they’re trying to extort as I saw them there about an hour ago)
“Entry on the property or premises without consent for any purpose by any person, including any person purporting to act on behalf of the Haudenosaunee Development Institute is strictly prohibited. Trespassers will be prosecuted,” the sign reads.
“We think it’s hate literature against us as protectors of the land,” Montour said.
(Edit: It’s a no tresspassing / no extortionists allowed sign and this notion Floyd and Ruby are trying to spread that they’re “protectors of the land” is absurd. Would one of these ace journalists please ask them how demanding money from developers protects the land?)
Mayor Mike Hancock confirmed that the city had the signs issued for developments at that site at the advice of its solicitors.
Danny Bawa, of Bawa Hotels Canada Ltd., said he had the signs erected over the weekend.
Natives refused construction workers entrance to the hotel site.
