According to the Hamilton Spectator, red power united – the red supremacy group who planned and announced a blockade of the 403 between Hamilton and Toronto today has backed down and called it off.

They’re claiming it’s because “more radical groups” expressed an intent to get involved, but one has to wonder if this is simply the result of police threatening to do their job and remove any unlawful blockade.

One would think that McGuinty would not want the publicity of a major artery into Toronto being shut down for no reason, so maybe he took the proverbial handcuffs off of the police for one day.

One of the biggest challenges for us the past four years has been dealing with and educating the media. This is not news to anyone who has been following our struggle, but fortunately the tide has been turning in 2010.

Admittedly, the PC party like any other is not without its embarrassments. The advertising scandal, faith based funding debacle, and Diane Finley just to name a few.

But while it’s easy to criticize the Conservatives for their failures, it’s important that we recognize the important steps they have taken in recent months to bring our agenda of law and order to the forefront and keep it there.

Mayor Fred Eisenberger says he can’t say whether Hamilton police would remove native protesters from disputed private property, even if land owners requested the intervention.

“We need to be informed by our police and our staff as to what our jurisdiction is and what our rights are in terms of what we could or could not do,” Eisenberger said.

“And I don’t want to speculate on a hypothetical here.”

The Haudenosaunee Development Institute says a 300-year-old treaty gives it the right to charge fees for development in Hamilton.

This week’s demand for a fee from the Ancaster Agricultural Society appears to be the first time the HDI has ventured into the city.
