Karl Walsh, president of the 8,100-member Ontario Provincial Police Association (OPPA), today called on all native leaders and the National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations, Phil Fontaine, to take responsibility for the actions of Aboriginal people at protest sites and instruct them on what constitutes a peaceful demonstration.

President Walsh said the OPPA does not object to peaceful protests by any group and never has. However, the Association does object to violence and criminal acts that put citizens and police officers at risk.

(Edit: That’s a boldfaced lie and Walsh knows it. They have screamed ‘bloody murder’ about every peaceful and law abiding protest Caledonia Wakeup Call has held)

Dalton McGuinty is smiling less and less these days, and with good reason. The early stages of John Tory’s platform for the upcoming election are shaping up beautifully and to say Dalton is struggling would be an understatement.  Let’s have a look at the opposing platforms thus far.

John Tory promises there will be one law for all. No special treatment for Native Terrorists.

McGuinty is standing on a very shaky, completely biased IpperWhiteWash report which recommends that police abandon law & order in favor of “Sensitivity to Aboriginal needs”. His answer to the announced 2007 Summer of Terrorism? Ask the criminals to please behave.

Ipperwash Report: Correctoid, Lefty Judge Cherry Picks Witnesses

Not since the days of King Ethelred “The Unready”, have we seen established government fork over Cash and Baubles from the Public Treasury to appease Brigands, Pirates and Bandits.

However in Politically Correct Canada and Ontario, offering cash on bended knee to a group heavily influenced and maybe intimidated by a rogue element acknowledged by Canadian and International Intelligence Agencies as “Terrorists” is being hailed by the correctoids in the drive-by-media, and celebrated by politicians from all stripes. Gary McHale has some shocking truths about where this appeasement is leading us.

The official government Ipperwash Report has been released. Mark Vandermaas of www.voiceofcanada.ca says the report is filled with errors of omission, including the failure to interview residents of the area who were eye-witnesses to acts committed by both the protestors and the police at Ipperwash. One of the pointsVandermaas disputes is the commission’s finding that Dudley George wasn’t armed, when he was shot by an OPP Sniper.

Aboriginal leaders across the country say the release of the Ipperwash report has cemented their resolve to use a diverse array of methods (Edit: Terrorism) this summer to raise awareness about outstanding land claims, racism and poverty faced by First Nations communities.

Chief Terrance Nelson of the Roseau River First Nation, south of Winnipeg, has threatened a lengthy blockade of CN rail lines unless the federal government moves to resolve some 800 outstanding land claims by June 29. He says the Ipperwash inquiry report justifies extreme action such as rail blockades as the only tenable way to draw attention to aboriginal grievances.

“There is certainly cause for First Nations to see that the only way to get the white man to do anything is simply to take direct action, and unfortunately that’s the reality that the First Nations face.”

Shawn Brant, a Mohawk protester from the Bay of Quinte First Nation who led a 30-hour rail blockade near Deseronto, Ont., last month, agreed that direct action is the only way aboriginal people can make their voices heard, and he hopes the death of Dudley George will motivate people to “express their anger” during the planned day of protest. (Edit: Notice how yet again, they’re using Dudley George as an excuse to commit Terrorist acts)

“I think it’s about demonstrating the power we have in our backyards. I think it’s about saying … we’re never going to be disrespected, we’re not going to allow for another situation like Dudley George, we’re not going to drink poison water without there being consequences,” said Brant.

Brant says there’s little governments can do at this point to prevent what he called “something that maybe people couldn’t even imagine.”

“Unless the government can get the chequebook out and run around really quick and try and put fires out, then yeah, it’s going to be not only a day or a week of discontent, it’s going to be a summer and it’s going to be a fall and it’s going to continue until these issues are resolved once and for all,” he said.

An apology for the events leading to the death of Dudley George is a start, but there is a long way to go toward soothing relations between First Nations and the provincial government, says the chief of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte (MBQ).

The apology from the province that accompanied Thursday’s results of the Ipperwash inquiry is a step in the right direction, said Chief R. Donald Maracle. But the hurt still runs deep.“Obviously it won’t restore Dudley George’s life, or the unjust loss of land,” he said. “But I think the issue was investigated properly and hopefully now a healing process has begun.”

At a Deseronto-area quarry, where a group of Mohawk protesters have been living since March, the inquest results affirmed what they already believed, said Shawn Brant, who has served as a spokesman for the group.

As Canada heads into what many aboriginal leaders have promised will be the “summer of the blockade,” the final report of the Ipperwash inquiry sends the wrong messages at the wrong time. By absolving native protesters of any responsibility in the 1995 death of Dudley George; and by recommending that the protesting band be given the provincial park they were illegally occupying, the report by commissioner Sidney Linden essentially tells natives across Canada that they are not responsible for their own actions. Nothing they do will be punished. Indeed, if they protest long enough and loud enough, they will be rewarded with land and money, even if their illegal acts end in violence.

This report simply adds to the fecklessness of officialdom in the face of the recent rail blockade near Belleville, Ont., and the illegal occupation of a housing development at Caledonia, Ont. (At the latter site this week, Ottawa offered squatters $125-million to end a land claim it originally claimed had no legal merit.)

When the newly elected premier Dalton McGuinty called the Ipperwash inquiry in November, 2003, there was more than a whiff of politics in the air. The pending wrongful death suit brought by the family of Dudley George against Mike Harris had provided useful fodder for the Liberals during and after the former premier’s time in office and all through the 2003 campaign. The damage done, on election day the family suddenly dropped the suit — four days before the trial was to begin. So for all of Mr. McGuinty’s pious claims that the inquiry was merely about “looking for the truth about what happened” the night Mr. George was killed and “what lessons we might draw from that tragedy so that we can ensure that it is never repeated,” the subtext was clear: It was to put Mr. Harris and his government on trial.

The natives who seized the park had no mandate to do so from the local band council, and indeed faced active opposition from other band members for having done so.

Many of those who participated were not even from the area, but had travelled from as far away as the United States to show their support.

No formal warning was offered that the park was about to be occupied. No grievance was clearly articulated beforehand, other than a vague, disputed and intermittently advocated claim that the park contained a native burial ground. Even after the occupation began, the protesters refused to communicate in any way with the police. And in almost every case where police and natives clashed, the violence was initiated by the natives. While the beating of Cecil Bernard George at the hands of several OPP officers, the proximate cause of the events leading to the other Mr. George’s death, was clearly deplorable, it came only after the first Mr. George had whacked an officer with a six-foot length of pipe. The fatal shooting — again, as wholly unjustified as it was — came after natives drove a bus at police.

So the police badly mishandled the occupation, yes. But had this particular group of natives not taken it into their heads to break the law, defy their band council, and seize the provincial park, they would never have come into conflict with the police. Yet throughout his report, Judge Linden takes the existence of this and other such native occupations as a given.

They simply “occur,” as if by acts of God…

Re: Flashpoints for protests remain ‘as intense,’ June 1

So the Ipperwash inquiry report has been made public and both the federal and provincial governments have been found responsible for the events of Sept. 6, 1995. What will become of this report?

We know that the
Ontario government and the federal government have been presented with recommendations regarding the outstanding landclaim disputes. Both governments are involved in landclaim negotiations with the Algonquins of Ontario.

For years, there have been complaints ranging from questionable election practices to the double-dipping of allocated funds by one community. To date, both governments have ignored these complaints.

The official release of the government Ipperwash inquiry has had it’s designed effect. The Mainstream media fell for it and misinformed the public once again with excerpts from this politically correct, entirely slanted, one sided, useless, pre determined, tax payer funded, $25 Million report which kissed the arse of Terrorist Dudley George and bashed the OPP and Harris government for trying to uphold the law in 1995.

Their final conclusion? The events at Ipperwash were entirely the fault of everyone but the Native Terrorists who illegally occupied a Military base, and a Provincial Park. That in cases of Terrorism or any criminal activity that happen to be committed by Natives, law and order should be instantly abandoned and condemned so that Canada can be more “sensitive to Aboriginal needs”.

Ipperwash Papers investigator calls Inquiry “shameful cover-up”

According to the lead investigator for The Ipperwash Papers project, the Ipperwash Inquiry is a shameful cover-up that deliberately ignored a campaign of native crime and intimidation against Ipperwash residents that began in earnest in 1992 following the submission of a little known land claim against the homes of West Ipperwash Beach residents by the Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point.

The Ipperwash Inquiry did not call a single full time resident to testify about the trauma they experienced at the hands of natives before, during and after the events of September 1995. During the course of an inquiry that lasted three years, a mere 90 minutes was allotted for residents to address the Commissioner in a townhall meeting that took place on the evening of June 21, 2006. Vandermaas alleges that the minutes of that meeting were “sanitized” to downplay residents’ statements in a way that strongly suggests that the Inquiry’s conclusions were pre-determined. He says that the Inquiry’s minutes of this ‘Community Consultation’ differed so dramatically from a reporter’s account of the meeting that he felt compelled to verify that she was, indeed, writing about the same event.

At least one high ranking Inquiry official had personal knowledge of how Ipperwash residents’ were suffering at the hands of native criminals, but that knowledge was never made public or used to help give residents a voice at the Inquiry. 

the Ipperwash Inquiry also ‘overlooked’ a letter from the township that blamed Mr. George’s death and the “terrorizing of a municipality” on the failure to enforce the law against natives. This letter, along with hundreds of other victim impact statements written by area residents, was submitted to a federally-appointed representative in 1996.

Thirty-two of these victim impact statements form an important and poignant part of The Ipperwash Papers. They, too, were ‘overlooked’ by the Ipperwash Inquiry.

“The Ipperwash Inquiry deliberately chose to ignore the issue of native violence and the role it, and the failure of the OPP and DND to enforce the law, played in the death of Dudley George. Dudley George may have died from a police bullet,” Vandermaas says, “but it was the failure to enforce the law against native criminals in the years prior to his death that loaded the rifle.”

Read the Ipperwash Papers, the True story of Ipperwash Here

McGuinty Started the Ipperwash Inquiry to make Mike Haris look bad – Justice was not served. Not one Resident of Ipperwash was ALLOWED to testify. Not one resident was permitted to speak about how much the residents were victimized by the illegal Native Occupation.

Not one Recommendation by the Inquiry to HELP the residents of Caledonia, Hagersview, Deseronto etc.

Stay up to date with all of the latest news on this slanted, pre determined, politically correct, steaming pile of appeasement here

A scathing inquiry report has found an impatient Mike Harris government, Ottawa’s neglect of aboriginal land claims and the cultural insensitivity of police all contributed to the death of a native protester who has become a symbol for aboriginal demands for justice in Canada ever since.

Justice Sidney Linden faulted then Ontario premier Mike Harris for giving police 24 hours to remove aboriginal protesters from Ipperwash park, just days after they occupied it.

(Edit: It’s now “Insensitive” to enforce the law and end illegal occupations)

The healing began with a 10-minute phone call from Premier Dalton McGuinty to the brother of slain protester Dudley George.

“On behalf of the people of Ontario, we apologize for the events that led to the loss of life,” McGuinty told Sam George at 12:40 p.m., less than three hours after Justice Sidney Linden’s four-volume report was released.

“This report … speaks to something profound – even historic. This day, let us resolve to be strong by moving forward together. Let us heal the wounds of the past and build a brighter future.”

(Edit: Profound and historic would be if McGuinty would demand that the law be enforced instead of trying to start a giant sing along of Kumbaya)

Premier Dalton McGuinty formally apologized on behalf of all Ontarians yesterday for the shooting of native protester Dudley George.

“Nothing can change the events that took place 12 summers ago or fully erase the scar that has been left on the history of aboriginal relationships for all who live here,” McGuinty said in the legislature. “On behalf of the people of Ontario, we apologize for the events that led to the loss of life. We deeply regret the death of Dudley George.”

NDP Leader Howard Hampton said McGuinty’s “rhe-toric” ignored conflicts with First Nations communities that continue under his watch.

(Edit: McGuinty will apologize to the family of a Terrorist without hesitation, but still no apology to the residents of Caledonia whom he has made a point of allowing to suffer endlessly for over 15 months now)

Former Ontario Premier Mike Harris misled the provincial legislature when he denied telling a high-level meeting of police and government officials that “I want the fucking Indians out of the park” hours before the massive confrontation late at night on Sept. 6, 1995, when Native activist Anthony (Dudley) George was shot dead by an OPP sniper, a provincial inquiry has found.

But Harris did not interfere or give inappropriate directions to the police during the massive police operation, Mr. Justice Sidney Linden ruled in his report.

He praised the OPP for improving communications with First Nations people since 1995, but also slammed the force for never correcting the false press releases it issued on Ipperwash that (Edit: ALLEGEDLY) incorrectly stated that Natives fired at police.

Among other recommendations;

– “The ministry of community safety and correctional services should issue a directive to all police services in Ontario, including the OPP, requiring police officers to report incidents of racism or other culturally insensitive behaviour by other officers to their superiors.”

– “The provincial government should establish a permanent, independent, and impartial agency to facilitate and oversee the settling of land and treaty claims in
Ontario.”

– “The provincial government should work with First Nations and Aboriginal organizations to develop policies that acknowledge the uniqueness of Aboriginal burial and heritage sites, ensure that First Nations are aware of decisions affecting Aboriginal burial and heritage sites, and promote First Nations participation in decision-making.”

(Edit: Let’s quit sugar coating this nonsnese and call it what it is. The recommendation goes as follows: APPEASEMENT APPEASEMENT APPEASEMENT APPEASEMENT)
