UPDATE: An interesting turn of events essentially shut down this protest / evidence gathering session before it got going. There were no customers at the usually busy illegal smoke shacks around Caledonia. The OPP were out in force searching for anyone but the Native thugs running the shacks to target, and other plans are in the works for the Peacekeepers who will not be going anywhere until each and every one of those shacks is out of business.

The Caledonia Peacekeepers will be paying visits to the illegal smoke shacks in Caledonia today to gather evidence. I will be attending on my own time (this is not a CANACE event) and will be documenting any attempt by the OPP to interfere and any attempt from the smoke shack owners to intimidate the Peacekeepers into leaving.
Having something of a unique perspective on what happens when law abiding citizens confront smoke shacks from December 1 2007, I expect an interesting day to say the least. There are many questions that we should have the answers to by the end of this day.
How will the likes of Jeff Henhawk and Steve Powless who think they are immune to the law and some kind of tough guys react to the fact that their operations are not going to be allowed to fly in the face of Caledonia anymore without repercussions?
Will the OPP actually do their job or will they send in a token few people to allow an ambush by the Natives to take place as they did in December 2007?
Will the mainstream media actually show up to cover this important turning point in history or will they simply interview a few of the Natives later and then run what they’ll claim is a fair story?
