In an effort to perhaps bring some level of reassurance to the victims of OPP abandonment to Native thugs of the families living on the Sixth Line in Caledonia, Haldimand Mayor Marie Trainer attempted to set up a simple meeting between them, and OPP commissioner Julian Fantino. This took place in late Sept 2009, but has only recently come to my attention.

Sixth Line is a Haldimand County road that runs adjacent to DCE and leads to the Six Nations reserve, but the part of it on which 14 families and their children live is not part of the Six Nations territory and is in the jurisdiction of the OPP.

UPDATE: March 1st 2010. As most know, the site hosting the tapes was down around the time I originally posted this article. That was perhaps due to a glitch of some kind and the tapes are all once again active for your listening pleasure.

This is a topic that we’ve discussed before, but a growing number of people are coming to this site by searching for the tapes, and many are taking the time to listen to them for what may be the first time. Also we have a new found audience among the media who are hungry for information regarding Caledonia, and these tapes are certainly worthy of their attention.

During the tumultuous summer of 2006, while under siege from a group of extremists, some clever residents of Caledonia uncovered the code for the radios of the self proclaimed “DCE Security” and began recording. What they captured was Natives talking about shooting police officers, interfering with the pursuit of a vehicle that refused to stop for the OPP, interfering with the routing of an ambulance, interfering with a shots fired investigation on the sixth line road, talking about shooting the driver of a truck who mistakenly turned into the entrance of DCE, and much more.

The tapes were given to Gary McHale who made them available to the media at a time when people like Fantino were proclaiming that all was quiet in Caledonia so long as the “outsiders” stayed away.

After hearing multiple death threats issued, the CBC decided they wanted to do a documentary on the matter. This was pulled just hours before it was to air, and the tapes seemed set to fade into obscurity because for any of us to publish these recordings would open us up to substantial fines from the CRTC according to reliable sources at the time.

In September 2007, someone created a website on which excerpts of the tapes were posted. The site consists purely of DCE tapes content and it appears that the administrator has not updated it in any way since then. Much as I did in 2007, I would like to thank the person responsible for taking the risk to get them in the public domain.

I would strongly encourage anyone who has not yet done so to go and listen to  the tapes for yourself here.

You can be sure that if residents were able to crack the code, the OPP had already done it and was well aware of the threats being made. Rather than issuing a press release informing the public of the serious danger posed by the DCE thugs, the OPP opted to downplay the situation at every turn and tried to convince the public that everything was calm and peaceful.

An in depth description of the content of the tapes is available in my original post, and on the site hosting them.

Focus Ontario had a great opportunity to sit down with Julian Fantino this week and ask the tough questions with him in studio. There was no place to run, no place to hide, and they absolutely blew it.

Julian sputtered out his usual rhetoric for about 4 minutes as the host sat and listened rather quietly. The song and dance about peacekeeping (are we a failed state?) and being “the meat in the sandwich” gave way only briefly to some new bold lies about arrests, investigations, and a claim that nobody is getting away with anything.

But you’re here because you want to see the interview, so here it is. (more…)

With all of the headway CANACE has been making in bringing an end to race based policing in Ontario, I was somewhat surprised to learn today that the signs of another illegal occupation are beginning to surface. This time it’s not small town Ontario, but in Oka Quebec where the Canadian military had to be called in to quell Mohawk Warriors (a terrorist organization) in 1990.

The Oka crisis had many familiar hallmarks of Caledonia. An illegal occupation to prevent development on private land, a lack of action by the local police until it was too late, a riot, the blockade of a prominent highway, and a government that wanted to keep its hands clean of the situation.

The primary differences are that the Mohawk warriors murdered a police officer with a gunshot to the face, and the military was subsequently brought in to quell the riot. Extensive history of Oka can be found online so long as one is able to weed through the pro criminal propaganda.

The issue in 1990 was the expansion of a golf course, and today it’s development of land right across the street. Thus far media coverage is somewhat limited, but we’re hopeful that many more details will come out soon. Here’s what we know so far.

We’ve all grown accustomed to hearing the same tired rhetoric from Julian Fantino anytime Caledonia is mentioned to him by the media, so it’s no shock to hear him using the same material now that he’s been criminally charged as he used 2 years ago. “Meat in the sandwich” “Difficult and complicated situation” “officer discretion” “keeping the peace” all the usual nonsense, but now that he’s been served with a summons, and backed by his boss Dalton McGuinty, he’s not surprisingly been emboldened and is taking his spew to a whole new level.

In an interview conducted for the TV show Focus Ontario, Fantino has shifted from questionable remarks to very bold lies. Since the show does not air until this Saturday January 23, we don’t yet have access to the majority of his statements, but what we have heard in excerpts is very disturbing.

Every criminal occurrence that has happened in Caledonia has either resulted in a person or persons being arrested, warrants of arrest being issued or ongoing investigations being pursued” As absurd as that is, it gets even worse. “No one has gotten away with anything

As we’ve been taking a look at the various media outlets lately who have finally caught on to what’s happening in Caledonia, I think it’s only fair that we have a look at one who still has it all so wrong.

The Toronto Star published an editorial today called much ado about Fantino” in which they make a bunch of classic, misinformed statements. It should be noted that I was unable to find the name of the author anywhere in the story, or on the website of the Star.

“Fantino and the OPP, who have been working hard to lower the temperature in the Caledonia conflict, do not appreciate McHale’s efforts.”

How would you renovate a $400,000 home that you had just purchased? A new kitchen or bathroom, perhaps some nice shrubbery or maybe a simple welcome mat would suffice? If you’re Dalton McGuinty you tear it to the ground. After all it’s only taxpayer’s money he’s playing with here, and with a running tab of $80 Million that we know of and counting, what’s another half a mil right?

As part of their out of court settlement with the Liberals, Dave Brown & Dana Chatwell signed Chatwell’s childhood home over to McGuinty once they had finished moving into a much nicer neighbourhood than the DCE. This took place on January 14, and by evening the government had moved in and posted signs warning of supposed asbestos.

By morning a demolition crew was hard at work razing the house to the ground. None of the workers were wearing any sort of respiratory protection, and the signs warning of asbestos were nowhere to be found. Funny how truly awful the McGuinty government is at maintaining its own web of lies.

An exercise in futility may be the most appropriate way to describe the crown’s efforts in Cayuga court yesterday.

Christie Blatchford of the Globe & Mail summed up the session quite nicely in her latest column stating: The absurd exercise lends credence to speculation that the AG was planning to stay the charge against the OPP boss yesterday, but was outfoxed by Mr. McHale, who complained in writing last Wednesday that the earlier date wouldn’t allow him to prepare properly or present his evidence to the Crown.” If you have not yet done so I can not strongly enough recommend reading her column here.

After Gary McHale succeeded in having a criminal charge of attempting to influence a municipal official laid against Julian Fantino, the crown needed a plan to make the charge that they argued against in Superior court go away to appease the government who signs their pay cheques while still somehow appearing neutral to the public.

In the midst of the frenzy of Fantino coverage, there is a case taking place inside a Toronto court room today that is of great significance but has slipped quietly under the radar of most.

In July of 2009, Gary McHale won an unprecedented order of mandamus which combined with my own truly reshaped the landscape of private prosecution in Canada. A brief history of the significance of both cases is in order.

With a few strokes of the pen, it appears that the McGuinty government is once again set to cover for their appointed civil rights destructor, Julian Fantino. Mr. Fantino told the media just days ago that he intends to “vigorously” defend himself against the criminal charge he’s facing as a result of his threatening email to Haldimand council in 2007, but the crown (an employee of the McGuinty Liberals) appears to be quickly taking steps to subvert the efforts of CANACE and a superior court judge to see Mr. Fantino face the music.

After being cleared of any wrong doing by Monte Kwinter before an investigation into complaints against him had been written, Fantino was emboldened to continue to his campaign against the charter rights and freedoms of non-Native citizens in Ontario, and escalated both his rhetoric against us, and his orders to oppress us. See FantinoGate, this site, Caledoniawakeupcall.com, voiceofcanada, & CANACE for in depth coverage of his attacks on democracy.

We have always had faith in the justice system to uphold the laws that the OPP have refused to, and as such we moved the battle to restore law and order into the courts in January 2008. It began with my efforts to see a Haldimand councillor charged after an assault on me, and exploded into superior court where judges have upheld our beliefs and consistently rebuked the crown for their position that OPP officers and government officials are not subject to the law during a Native land claim.

One of the most significant battles CANACE has faced for the past 3 + years is a propaganda war initiated by the OPP and in particular by Julian Fantino. Today what I would submit is the most significant article written by anyone in the mainstream media in the almost 4 years since DCE was seized by weaponized toddlers appeared in the Globe & Mail.

From the day that Fantino was appointed commissioner of the OPP, he has stated “there is one law for all” and worked very hard to ensure that the opposite is true, but in order to enforce race based policing he needed the majority of the public to believe that he was acting in good faith as an actual police officer instead of as a tyrannical puppet of the McGuinty government.

To that end, he simply told the media that the OPP have been doing the best they can, preserving the peace in a delicate and complicated situation, and an abundance of other catch phrases and buzz words designed to fool everyone into thinking he was doing his job instead of working to subvert the foundation of justice itself.

2009 was a landmark year for CANACE to say the least. We have perhaps appeared relatively quiet to the general public as of late because the bulk of our work has been in the Ontario court system, but this should not be confused with a lack of action on our part as we’ve been furiously busy.

On January 12 we won a precedent setting legal ruling which began to reshape the way that prosecution by private citizens is handled by the courts and the crown. See the ruling here, and the Parkinson v R page for more details. This followed an equally important December 2008 Parkinson v. R ruling.

January 27 CANACE founders traveled south of the border to meet with US officials and provide them with evidence regarding attacks on ATF agents and border patrol guards in Caledonia. Being invited into another Country to provide evidence that our own government refused to hand over to the States was to say the least one of those days that you realize you’ve accomplished something.

UPDATE January 8 2010: A justice of the peace has officially signed the charge against Julian Fantino this afternoon and he will be summoned to Cayuga Court to face the criminal charge of influencing a municipal official which carries a maximum of 5 years in prison.

January 6, 2010

Remember when Michael Bryant killed a man in 2008 how the media and public were quite convinced that as the former Attorney General he would receive preferential treatment and would not be able to receive a trial that was in the best interest of justice?

Although Julian Fantino has never held any office with the prestige of Attorney General, he is every bit the public figure that Bryant was, and the same concerns should be on the minds of all of us now that he stands charged. Add to that the fact that our government has already taken numerous steps to cover up for Fantino and it’s very difficult to believe that the crown will be capable of treating Mr. Fantino in a way that’s in the best interest of the public.

Steps could certainly be taken to ensure that justice prevails in this case, but there would need to exist a will within the Ontario government to stop covering for their appointed enforcer of race based policing. They could simply stop interfering with the justice system, but that seems somewhat doubtful at this point. There is a very simple solution that not only ensures Fantino won’t receive special treatment, but takes that decision out of the hands of the McGuinty government in the eyes of the public.
