For those who have not yet heard, The Caledonia Eight is a group of people who on December 3, 2011 were arrested on Surrey Street in Caledonia because of the color of their skin. A trait over which they have no control.

The group consisting of Gary McHale, Merlyn Kinrade, Randy Fleming, Bonnie Stephens, Jack VanHalteren, Mark Vandermaas, Doug Fleming, & Jeff Parkinson had their freedom taken from them for walkilng down a public road owned by the Corporation of Haldimand County by order of the McGuinty government who does not own the road.

During the CANACE truth & reconciliation rally on Sunday February 27, Gary McHale had a long, respectful conversation with Six Nations Elder Jan Longboat. Unfortunately the two leaders were surrounded by radicals who insisted on interrupting repeatedly, but ultimately the respectful dialogue continued until the two came to an agreement to separate the 2 sides.

The plan was simple. McHale would take the CANACE crew and residents South down Argyle Street, and Longboat would lead her people north to DCE.

While reading an excellent story by Mark Vandermaas about why Conservatives can’t trust the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, I remembered a ‘feature’ video I had seen from CBC some time ago praising the wonderful residential school system and showing happy Native children learning about such things as Valentines Day, and “the mastery of words”. 

Mr. Vandermaas’s story documents the failure of the CBC to present any unbiased reports on the victims of Caledonia and their willingness to instead provide air time to the criminals. At issue specifically is their unwillingness to run a story that they have been working on about the growing dissention in the ranks of the Conservatives as a result of Fantino joining the party.  

Before we have a look at the 1955 residential school video, let’s look at a clip of one of the interviews that CBC conducted with Mr. McHale on the Fantino topic. While this was being filmed in front of Fantino headquarters in Vaughan, Julian was seen sneaking out the back door and driving away.

After months of speculation, Gary McHale announced this week that he will run for Council in the upcoming Haldimand election. It should come as no surprise to anyone but perhaps current Councillor for the town Craig Grice whose accomplishments include attending photo ops for the Liberals and taking a job at Stelco during his time serving the people of Haldimand County.

Grice will perhaps be best remembered for being scared into silence by former OPP commissioner Julian Fantino. When Fantino threatened his right to free speech, Mr. Grice opted to allow himself to be intimidated into silence instead of filing a police service complaint for a threat that later saw Julian charged with attempting to influence a municipal official. The reason Fantino was charged? Gary McHale took the evidence to court with no help from anyone on Council.

McHale brings unique experience to the table. His knowledge of the problems that the people of Caledonia are facing is second to none, and his dedication to fighting on their behalf is a sight to behold. While some have been busy playing politics with the lives of residents, McHale has been in court setting new precedents and seeing government officials charged for their role in allowing the rule of law to be obliterated.

Yesterday, CANACE executive director Gary McHale was a guest on the Michael Coren show on CTS. The appearance was another milestone for us and for Haldimand County as Coren is a national show with a very well respected host.

This brings us one large step closer to informing the general public who in many cases are still clueless about what’s happening in small town Ontario.

Despite harassment from very determined opposition making a desperate effort to stop Gary McHale and Mark Vandermaas from speaking, the Aboriginal Policy forum at Mount Royal University in Calgary was a great success. Not only were they allowed to speak, but both received a hearty hug from Six Nations spokesman and one time DCE occupier Wes Elliot.

Although I was unable to make the trip out west, we still have exclusive video of the presentation, which is what you’re here for so let’s get to it. Please note that these are best viewed at 480p, and may require time to buffer depending on your connection.

After 2 ½ years of wrongful prosecution for political gains, the Crown finally stayed the counselling mischief not committed charge against activist Gary McHale today in a Hamilton Court. There are plenty of theories as to why now, but my personal best guess is that it has a lot to do with Gary closing in on criminal charges against senior McGuinty government officials.

With court ordered disclosure in hand, McHale was creeping slowly closer to being able to connect the dots between the inspector who arrested him for a crime that nobody has ever heard of, and the Deputy Minister for the McGuinty government.

In a disgusting show of disrespect for the people who pay his salary, a top crown official in Ontario first tried to wait out CHCH veteran Al Sweeney at the Cayuga courthouse last week, and when he failed at that he simply refused to speak to the media.

Apparently the new position of the Crown who is supposed to represent us is that we’re to be kept in the dark about how they choose to use the authority and abuse the trust that the public places in them. This cowardly move comes after the crown stayed charges against senior OPP officials for their role in targeting activist Gary McHale to be arrested.

Before we arrived at the Tom Keefer counter protest to our scheduled anti racism rally, an amateur videographer was on scene with our camera gear to capture the scene and mingle with the crowd. Between us, we got some good footage of the event which I’m glad to share with you here.

Please note in advance that these videos will need time to buffer if you want to watch them full screen in high resolution.

In the first clip our guy is questioned at length by one of the Natives for taking video of the Keefer protest. It’s worth noting that there were dozens of cameras on us the entire time we were there, and not once did we bother anyone about it, or try to hide from them.

A Cayuga Court justice has ordered criminal charges of obstruction of justice against OPP deputy commissioner Chris Lewis, and Superintendent Ron Gentle this morning for their role in having Gary McHale arrested in December 2007.

Although they knew they had no evidence against McHale, he was arrested to prevent a backlash from the criminal occupiers as Clyde Powless was arrested for assault. There was too much evidence of the cowardly attack from behind that Powless committed on McHale, so instructions were given to arrest McHale at the same time as Powless to appease Native extremists.

More info on these charges will be made available very soon both here and at caledoniawakeupcall.com

Also be sure to see a couple of excellent fact packed editorials by Mark Vandermaas of VoiceofCanada on the topic here & here

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.”

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.
