In early 2007, we first heard the heart wrenching story of a young lady named Pam Dudych who we called ‘Dancer’ at the time to protect her identity. When the OPP ran away from the Douglas Creek Estates on April 20 2006, they abandoned the residents of the Sixth Line road including young Pam.
At 14 years old she witnessed the worst of the terror in Caledonia as the Natives rampaged outside her front door. The OPP told her one day that if a Native broke into her home and attacked her, she would be the one charged if she defended herself. As a result she was forced to begin counselling and start taking medication.
Meanwhile the Natives decided to hang a skinned, beheaded deer on a hydro pole near her house where all the children on the school bus would see it. Protectors of mother earth indeed…
On April 17 2007, future CANACE founders took her to Queens Park to tell her story to the media who didn’t care. Not one journalist interviewed her afterward.
