Six Nations activists say they will continue to block construction for a new hotel in the city’s northwest until its owners comply with all Confederacy demands.

“They’re trying to come on the site but we can’t let them do it until they comply with all requirements,” native activist Floyd Montour said in an interview at noon Monday.

A Brantford builder remains in a standoff with Six Nations protesters over the future of his duplex development on Grand River Avenue.

Mike Quattrociocchi, a former city councillor and owner of Mayberry Homes, went in front of officials at the Haudenoshaunee Development Institute to plead for understanding on Tuesday evening, hours after Confederacy members Floyd and Ruby Montour and a handful of supporters took over the site of his four-duplex development.

But he left the meeting empty-handed.

The shutdown was the second such action since the Montours stood in front of construction vehicles in September.

The Montours said the occupation was prompted by the fact that, despite months of talking, Quattroociocchi had not yet paid assessed development fees to the HDI, nor had he signed a protocol document recognizing that organization’s jurisdiction.

(Edit: Maybe that’s because the “fee’s” are extortion, and the HDI has no jurisdiction over anything anywhere nor will they ever)

Feeling ignored and “laughed at,” Six Nations protesters again shut down the building Tuesday of four duplexes on Grand River Avenue. (Edit: Is that the new excuse? How about a little truth Floyd? “we figured our wallets were getting a bit light so we decided to try again to extort this developer”)

Bricklayers at Mike Quattrociocchi’s project left the site after Floyd and Ruby Montour and a handful of supporters arrived at about noon.

The former councillor, owner of Mayberry Homes, was in Hamilton at the time the native group stepped onto the land.

The Montours also stopped work at the same site in September after which Quattrociocchi said he wouldn’t pay a $50,000 fee requested by the newly launched Haudenosaunee Development Institute and compared the request to Mafia extortion.

Native protesters again have shut down a building site on Grand River Avenue.

Ruby and Floyd Montour and a handful of supporters arrived at about noon at the housing project being developed by former city councillor Mike Quattrociocchi.

(Edit: because someone has allowed them to do it yet again. They’ll keep huffing and puffing until someone stands up to them and says get lost. Someone has to take a hard stand against the extortion institute or they’re overinflated ego is going to keep growing in leaps and bounds. If the Brantford police don’t have the guts to remove them, someone needs to exercise their right as a property owner to use reasonable force to remove these tresspassers from their land, and defend themselves. The sympathy from the public to allow another DCE style occupation is simply no longer there and it’s time for someone to call their bluff)

CANACE presents our first report: The Cost of Native Occupations.

Updated October 11, 2007 – As we all know by now, the worst Premier in Ontario history has been elected to a second reign of horror. This is not good news for Caledonia or anyone who cares about law and order in Ontario, but it’s not the end of the battle. The things worth having in this life are not only worth fighting for but usually require fighting for and that is what we will continue to do. 

October 10, 2007

Today is the single biggest chance we have to change the landscape of what’s happening in Caledonia, and all you have to do to make a difference is take a few minutes to put a check mark in a box.

For anyone considering not voting today I ask you the following:

How would you feel if your vote could have been the one that knocks McGuinty out of power but you didn’t bother to do it? Remember the election that saw Bush elected was decided by a handful of votes.

Is the suffering of the children of the Sixth Line not worth taking a few minutes to vote against? Remember some of those who need McGuinty defeated the most are too young to vote, but you can cast yours on their behalf.

If you’re not sure that John Tory will keep his word and end the lawlessness, ask yourself what will Dalton McGuinty do if re elected?

Is that few minutes spent doing something else today worth 4 more years of being grossly overtaxed and knowing that your money is paying to keep illegal occupations, extortion and the oppression on your rights going?

How do you feel about the fact that every tax dollar you pay for the next 4 years will not begin to cover the cost of the OPP sitting in their cars refusing to help as someone is beaten nearly to death?

How does it feel knowing that every time McGuinty smiles for the camera, it’s because his hand is in your pocket?

How effectively can the billions of dollars from the McGuinty imposed health care tax have been spent when Sam Gualtieri was refused a CAT scan at almost every hospital his doctor had to call to beg to give him one?

If the current polls showing McGuinty way ahead are discouraging you, remember those are phone polls and half of those people won’t bother to vote today.

I’m going to spend the time it would take me to write a few more of these questions going out and casting my vote. I sincerely hope that you will all do the same!

Originally published by the Brantford Expositor.

As one who initially helped conceive the Six Nations’ land development protocol, I would like to speak to its merits and the thoughts behind the idea in the light of recent criticism from developers, mostly, about the protocol and the fees proposed. (Edit: Extortion)

The idea came as we saw the enormous cost, (Edit: Potential for Extortion) for all concerned, of reclaiming (Edit: Illegally occupying) a relatively small piece of land in Caledonia. Not only the financial cost but also hours of lost time with our families, (Edit: Go home and stop illegally occupying DCE then) lost hours of employment income, fines, jail time and criminal records and loss of personal and friendly relations with the Caledonia folk and the animosity now ingrained. (Edit: Terrorizing the citizens of the town may have something to do with the loss of friendly relations with them)

So why not devise a way to circumvent future conflict by creating a permit process whereby the Six Nations Confederacy would have an opportunity to (Edit: Extort money from developers) comment on development of land (Edit: Issue threats) whose true ownership has yet to be resolved in a fair and equitable resolution process?

This permit process would serve many useful purposes. Developers would be made fully aware of (Edit: Things that are not their concern and that they have no legal duty to consult on) the nature of the history of the land in question and whether Six Nations, not being completely against development, has any concerns regarding archeological, environmental or culturally significant concerns. (Edit: Wants money)

The permit fee, just as a fee to any municipality, (Edit: Which are governments unlike the group of organized criminals extorting builders) would be an administrative fee to conduct the required research of the concerns mentioned above. Now Six Nations can act in a proactive manner rather than reacting with all its potential for misunderstanding and conflict. (Edit: Make even more money on their illegal occupation of DCE by threatening to attack developments that don’t pay up)

September 23, 2007

Remember this date ladies and gentlemen as today is the day that the Government silence and inaction on the lawless Native terrorism and extortion in Ontario died.

Conservative leader John Tory visited Caledonia today and made clear the position his PC government will take once in office on the curse that McGuinty has placed on Caledonia, and allowed to spread throughout the Province.

The following is from the official story as sent out by the PC party:

“Progressive Conservative Leader John Tory today returned to Caledonia, the site of the ongoing land-occupation, where he called for new leadership to resolve the current standoff and prevent other illegal occupations in the future.“For over a year and a half Dalton McGuinty has permitted an illegal occupation to paralyze this entire community,” Mr. Tory said, “He has failed the people of Ontario.

To date, Dalton McGuinty has refused to insist on the rule of law when it comes to illegal occupations. The Caledonia occupation alone has cost Ontario taxpayers $55 million so far. Similar disputes have since threatened communities ranging from Desoronto, Brantford, Hagarsville, the Village of York, and Dunnville.

Tory announced today that he would move to protect Ontario communities from illegal occupations by strengthening existing laws.

“I am announcing today that a PC government will amend provincial statutes, including the Trespass to Property Act to address the breakdown in law that results from an illegal occupation,” said Tory. This new act would respect the valid interests of each side, protect innocent bystanders, and set a policy framework for police.”

He also outlined the new ground rules that a Progressive Conservative government would enforce when confronted with an illegal occupation:

  • No negotiation with anyone engaging in an illegal occupation;
  • Oppose any group using an illegal occupation to extort concessions or payments
  • Insist that the authority of the courts, including court injunctions, are respected and enforced; and,

• Use the justice system to pursue civil action against those who participate in, direct, or financially support illegal occupations.

“I will stand up and stand beside the people of this province to ensure they are protected,” Tory concluded. “For a safe and strong Ontario, leadership matters.”

The following letter from Gary McHale was published Sept 08/07 in the Brantford Expositor under the title, “Strife moves to Hancock’s backyard.” It was sent in response to the illegal occupations and intimidation of land owners in the area.

=========================================
Last September I booked a room at the Lions Hall to help residents of Brantford understand what was happening in Caledonia, and the effect it was having on innocent residents and builders being victimized by an illegal occupation and the threats that come with these occupations. Mayor Hancock directly interfered with my booking and had it cancelled. It appears that it is okay for native people to have a public voice but not non-natives.On Oct. 4, The Expositor printed Mayor Hancock’s words from my taped conversation with Mayor Hancock where he stated why my rental had been cancelled. His words: “There is a real concern this would not be productive to have in our community. We’re working hard at a very tough time to have some kind of harmony between ourselves and our neighbours who we’ve lived with for a long, long time. At the moment in Brantford it’s relatively calm.”

Former Brantford City Councillor and current developer Mike Quattrociocchi speaks in depth to Bill Kelly of CHML about the details of Native Criminals shutting down his Grand River Avenue development.

In this must hear interview he talks about trying to work with Six Nations who told him he had nothing to worry about until he had invested the money to get started, then revealed their true nature. His meeting with the Six Nations Confederacy this past weekend where he was ridiculed by them for his efforts, and the absolute failure of our Police and the McGuinty government to protect the rights of Canadians against these attacks.

The racist political policing (or extreme lack of) known as 2 Tiered Justice was first referred to regarding Caledonia & DCE, but it is far from contained to one small town.

When Native Criminals took over the building site of what was to be a retirement home in Hagersville, the OPP not only stood and watched but assisted them in erecting a barricade to keep the legal owner of the property off of his land.

On June 29, 2007 the OPP closed the busiest highway in the Country the 401 because a small group of Native thugs said they might do it. No attempt was made to stop any of the blockades led by Terrorist Shawn Brant. Instead the Police we pay to protect us assisted him by blockading the road themselves.

When they laid a claim to the future site of a Wal-Mart in Dunville, nothing was done to stop them and the latest rumors are that Wal-Mart is canceling the building because of it.

When the Criminals showed up at a housing development in Brantford and demanded the construction of 200 new homes come to a halt, the OPP did nothing and the developer stopped.

Here We Go Again 

 By Christine McHale
August 28, 2007

 

Another one bites the dust!

Yes folks, it’s happened again. This time in Brantford, go figure!

A developer in Brantford was contacted by Six Nations last Thursday and told he had to stop all development of a housing sub-division because the land he bought wasn’t his. It belongs to Six Nations. Sound familiar?

The developer of Mayberry Homes, Mike Quattrociocchi, says he did everything right, everything he was supposed to do. He bought the land, got the land title, got the building permits, then made the fatal mistake of thinking all was good for go and he was in the clear. Never mind the fact that by that time, even before any ground was broken, before any basement was poured, before he did anything else, he would have spent millions already.

Now, after being told to stop all development, he is frustrated. Now that’s an understatement.

And, as if that weren’t enough, last Friday, six natives paid him a visit and told him that if he didn’t stop all development they would get twenty to thirty more natives to come and occupy land he had legally purchased, and legally had received all necessary land title, deed, and building permits for. Lock, stock and barrel!

So who runs this province anyways? Not the spineless McGuinty government, a government that would fail to recognize leadership if it bit them in the you-know-what!

The police perhaps? Nope!

So far, not one single developer, not one single police force, not one single McGuinty government MPP has stood up for justice.

To be sure, the developers, and they are a growing number, have made noise, but to no avail. Development has been stopped in Caledonia, Dunnville, Hagersville, to name a few, and now in Brantford, again.

Spineless, leadership clueless governments have enabled radical natives to thwart development and progress. Any why not? They’ve been given the green light by the government to go ahead, bring economic terrorism to town after town. They’ve been told to go ahead, claim land parcel after land parcel, rightly or wrongly so, and you just never know, you may walk away with oodles and oodles of land and cash to boot.

One glimmer of hope though. October 10 is coming up fast. Why not dump the clueless, leadership challenged McGuinty Liberals. After all, you can’t get any worse form of government that one which doesn’t govern.

In what is becoming an all too familiar scene in Canada, Natives decided this morning that property in the process of development in Brantford belongs to them and shut down construction.

Work on the 250 homes for which foundations have already been laid and 50 have already been sold ground to a halt as Natives set up under the guise of an “information protest” this morning.

Quote – Osprey Media, Brantford Expositor Online

“A group of about 10 natives with placards and banners gathered at the busy corner of Garden Avenue and the Johnson Side road where city trucks were busy hauling fill material from the area. The protesters are unsure of how long they will stay in the hot, dusty road but city workers agreed to stop the trucks by noon.”

For those wondering who or what a “Timmer” is, he’s a supporter of the DCE Terrorists who is well known in the area for showing up at public events, sticking a camcorder in peoples faces until someone asks him to not record them, taunting them until they tell him off, and then posting that part of the video online with claims that he was yelled at by people simply for supporting Native Rights.

For all of his big talk, in real life Timmer is a Male Nurse named Timothy Sywyk of Brantford. It seems he’s gotten himself in a bit of trouble at work.. Courtesy of www.CaledoniaWakeupCall.com
