Another major hearing on the pending injunction against the extortionist HDI and their representatives took place before a justice of the peace this morning in a packed Brantford court room, but not before supporters of land claim lawlessness staged a show across the street.
At 9am a protest of “solidarity” began in Victoria Park directly across from the Brantford superior court. Approximately 100 Natives showed up to wave signs in an attempt to cast a thin veil over threats of violence being uttered by Six Nations residents and their chief Bill Montour.
As the only representative of CANACE in attendance, I could feel the love in the air as I checked my watch on arrival and was told by a man with teeth missing “I’m surprised YOU know how to tell time!” I really wasn’t expecting a warm hug from a strictly pro-Native crowd, but even I was surprised to see how easily they have the Brantford Police dancing like their puppet OPP counterparts.
