In a press release issued today regarding the intimidation by Fantino that was reported here earlier this week, Toby Barrett revealed that Natives gave him an eviction notice at his home.

The Natives have been telling us for over 2 years that they have no interest in anything but new development, and now we learn that they’ve tried to evict our MPP from his home! How much more arrogant and obscene can you get?

This of course raises serious questions.

After an obscene run of wreaking havoc on development across 2 counties, the theatrics that have been called “the Floyd and Ruby show” have finally been brought to an end.

Not by the Ontario Provincial Police who have watched as they halted development in Haldimand County, nor by the Brantford Police who watched as they set to work on destroying the development industry in Brantford, but by a small group of average people who said no more.

BRANTFORD – A judge has prohibited native protesters from demonstrating at construction sites to prevent what he described “irreparable harm” to the City of Brantford.

Superior Justice Gerald Taylor imposed the prohibition this week as an interim measure while the city is waiting for the court to rule on a permanent injunction against the protesters, who have been disrupting work at five construction site for at least two months.

“In my view, irreparable harm will be suffered by the City of Brantford if it is not permitted to control development on lands within its jurisdiction,” Taylor wrote in a judgement dated today.

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.

“Foundation for confrontation”

As reported by the Brantford Expositor yesterday, OPP commissioner Julian Fantino paid a visit to a longhouse meeting to chat with Confederacy chiefs on Friday.

That alone is not earth shattering news as Fantino has stated in the past that he visits the area to dine with Native leaders and visit his friends on DCE, but this time he didn’t come for dinner and he was not bearing a bottle of wine.

What’s ground breaking about this story is that Julian allegedly told the Natives that the Ontario Provincial Police might enforce the law and arrest criminals regardless of their skin color!

New bylaws aimed at stopping native protests at city construction sites have failed their first test.

Six Nations protesters weren’t deterred Tuesday by warning signs posted over the weekend at the site of the $10.5-million Hampton Inn Hotel in the northwest business park.

“I’m frustrated,” said Danny Bawa, president of the company behind the hotel project. “Once the signs were there, it should have worked.

“People normally obey the law.”

Just when you think that the likes of Extortionists Floyd and Ruby Montour can’t get any more ridiculous, a story like this comes along.

Conflict has risen another notch at the construction site of a hotel repeatedly protested by Six Nations activists in the city’s northwest, with the sudden appearance of signs forbidding entrance to the property by anyone from a particular native organization.

A native activist (Edit: Extortionist) is warning Brantford and Haldimand they’re courting trouble if they try to end protests over land claims with bylaws that prohibit interference with development.

Brantford quietly passed two bylaws Monday night, banning interference with development and access to property and naming three sites that have been the target of Six Nations activists Ruby and Floyd Montour.

The second bylaw banned unauthorized fees respecting developments and referred to the (Edit: Extortionist) Haudenosaunee Development Institute, a native body seeking fees from developers in the Haldimand Tract along the Grand River.

City police won’t help end native protests at the northwest Brantford construction site for a hotel, where work has been halted by Six Nations’ Confederacy activists.

Instead, police will act cautiously, emphasizing the need to preserve the peace, protect the public and maintain officers’ safety.

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.

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.
