The thing that’s most striking when speaking to any of the victims of Caledonia is how abandoned they feel. Race based policing and government cover ups have done their job of leaving many residents who were plenty feisty in 2006 feeling as though there’s little more they can do.
Some come to all of the rallies in the hope that their voice will be heard, but most feel that they have been abandoned by their government and their police force and that their voices have been squashed by forces much larger than they. A public meeting held last night by CANACE will however hopefully give them some new found hope. Change is in the wind, and I’m hopeful that everyone can see it.
On May 5th 2010, CANACE director Gary McHale and Voice of Canada’s Mark Vandermaas will be invited speakers at a National Aboriginal Policy forum at Mount Royal University in Calgary. Their purpose is to address the policy makers and intellectuals about the disastrous effects of appeasing criminals who hide behind their aboriginal ancestry, and they will be in elite company.
Since it will finally be possible to give the victims of Caledonia a voice at a national level, a meeting was held to get feedback from the public. Unlike token government meetings of the past, the concerns of residents will not be buried and the stories of the victims will be taken to an audience with the power to effect change.
Desperate efforts have been made by CUPE and others who blindly support violence and chaos to prevent the victims from having a voice including thinly veiled threats made to the organizer and an alarmingly defamatory online petition to keep CANACE out of this forum, but they have failed to intimidate author, organizer, and expert Dr. Frances Widdowson much as they failed to intimidate us over the past 4 years.
2010 has been a year of great strides for law and order in Haldimand and our momentum will not be stopped by a few small minded, disillusioned students from Toronto, and some desperate militants. The days when Caledonia was a free target for unimaginable crime are now over, and the next big step is to ensure that it never happens again.
Giving residents and victims a voice at the National policy level is a huge step toward lasting peace, law & order, and recognition of the wrongs committed by the Government, the OPP, and the Native thugs. It’s a huge step for Caledonia that Ipperwash unfortunately never received.
Many thanks to those who attended last night and gave victim impact statements to be brought to Calgary. As pointed out last night by Mark Vandermaas, the only remaining evidence from Ipperwash is the victim impact statements as the residents had absolute faith in their government and turned over all material evidence to either government officials, or the OPP. Not surprisingly it all mysteriously vanished.
The battle may be far from over, but the days of scrambling to get a foothold are long gone, and the desperation of the few remaining extremists to stop us is proof positive that we’re on the road to resolution.
