Canadian Press – Original Title: Blockades and escalating protests won’t derail talks in Caledonia: Premier

TORONTO – Blockades that cut off highways and vital rail lines won’t stop the province from negotiating with aboriginal protesters (Terrorists) to resolve outstanding land claims and end a two-year (Criminal) occupation, Premier Dalton McGuinty said Tuesday.

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.

Ontario Aboriginal Affairs Minister Michael Bryant has been served with a notice of intent to sue for libel by a controversial critic of the government’s handling of the Caledonia land dispute and the OPP.

Mark Vandermaas, of London, Ont., editor of the Voice of Canada website and a founder of Canadian Advocates for Charter Equality, served the notice on Bryant shortly before a Haldimand County council meeting yesterday.

CALEDONIA — If Sam Gualtieri had died when he was attacked by a pack of goons last year, would Premier Dalton McGuinty have come down for his funeral?

That was the main question people here asked yesterday.

If he ever decides to check out one of the province’s most embarrassing messes, the first place he ought to stop is the home of Gualtieri, a 53-year-old former homebuilder who believes he was one blow away from being murdered.

Instead, after being viciously attacked by native protesters who were squatting in a home he owned, he spent a week in intensive care with numerous broken bones and severe brain trauma.

“He has been through so much,” wife Sandy said. “We are just glad we have him.”

This May he will walk his daughter Michelle down the aisle for her wedding. He was attacked in a home, in a neighbouring development to the occupied Douglas Creek estates, he was building for her. “I just went there to check it out and was jumped when I walked in the door,” he said.

In a historic first, Aboriginal affairs minister Michael Bryant visited Caledonia today. After only 20 months, the Liberal party finally sent a representative to town. The only problem with this is he avoided residents like the plague.

CD98.9 Simcoe

Norfolk’s Mayor is responding to a media release recently put out by local MPP Toby Barrett about an agreement to cease development on an number of provincially-owned properties in the area due to aboriginal land disputes.

The properties include 14 acres in Townsend with the Spucedale Correctional Centre, the Norfolk County OPP office and the horticultural research station.

Norfolk County Council is trying to verify the truthfulness of what was included in Toby Barretts’ media release.

At this point they have traced it back to published reports in the Turtle Island News and the Chronicle in Haldimand.

Mayor Dennis Travale’s first reaction was why didn’t Mr Barrett phone his office and give the County a heads up.

Updated October 11, 2007 – As we all know by now, the worst Premier in Ontario history has been elected to a second reign of horror. This is not good news for Caledonia or anyone who cares about law and order in Ontario, but it’s not the end of the battle. The things worth having in this life are not only worth fighting for but usually require fighting for and that is what we will continue to do.

Today is the single biggest chance we have to change the landscape of what’s happening in Caledonia, and all you have to do to make a difference is take a few minutes to put a check mark in a box.

For anyone considering not voting today I ask you the following:

How would you feel if your vote could have been the one that knocks McGuinty out of power but you didn’t bother to do it? Remember the election that saw Bush elected was decided by a handful of votes.

Is the suffering of the children of the Sixth Line not worth taking a few minutes to vote against? Remember some of those who need McGuinty defeated the most are too young to vote, but you can cast yours on their behalf.

If you’re not sure that John Tory will keep his word and end the lawlessness, ask yourself what will Dalton McGuinty do if re elected?

Is that few minutes spent doing something else today worth 4 more years of being grossly overtaxed and knowing that your money is paying to keep illegal occupations, extortion and the oppression on your rights going?

How do you feel about the fact that every tax dollar you pay for the next 4 years will not begin to cover the cost of the OPP sitting in their cars refusing to help as someone is beaten nearly to death?

How does it feel knowing that every time McGuinty smiles for the camera, it’s because his hand is in your pocket?

How effectively can the billions of dollars from the McGuinty imposed health care tax have been spent when Sam Gualtieri was refused a CAT scan at almost every hospital his doctor had to call to beg to give him one?

If the current polls showing McGuinty way ahead are discouraging you, remember those are phone polls and half of those people won’t bother to vote today.

I’m going to spend the time it would take me to write a few more of these questions going out and casting my vote. I sincerely hope that you will all do the same!

CALEDONIA — A provincial Conservative government would rewrite the trespass laws to give police more powerful tools to end “illegal occupations” such as the 18-month-old native blockade of the Douglas Creek Estates in Caledonia, PC Leader John Tory says.

Tory said he would broaden the definition of trespass to include illegal occupations and apply the law to any person or organization who encourages such actions as well as to the people who are on site.

Maximum fines would be $2,000 for individuals and $25,000 for organizations for each day that an occupation defies a court order to stop.

Tory said he has made seven previous visits to Caledonia to hear residents’ concerns, and even attempted without success to meet with Six Nations representatives, while Premier Dalton McGuinty has yet to make an appearance.

The following statement today by health minister George Smitherman raises some interesting questions.

Our focus is maintaining peace, his focus is stirring the pot,” Deputy Premier George Smitherman said in a statement released as Tory met with residents in the town, not far from the Douglas Creek Estates, the development occupied by protesters upset over a land-claims dispute in February 2006.”

I have a few questions for the Liberals now that they have appointed this new expert to speak to the media about Caledonia.

Why is George Smitherman, the health Minster of Ontario talking about Caledonia and Native land claims?

Wouldn’t it be prudent for him to reserve any Caledonia related comments to health care issues such as the health of Sam Gualtieri who was hospitalized by McGuinty’s ability to keep the peace?

CaledoniaWakeUpCall and VoiceofCanada have obtained a copy of the Statement of Claim for a $12Million lawsuit against Gwen Boniface, Julian Fantino, Brian Haggith and the Province of Ontario by Caledonia residents Dave Brown and Dana Chatwell. 

We cannot find a better way to say what the lawyer has already stated below:

 Misfeasance in Public Office 

113. The agreement by the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs made with the native protestors and the Haudenosaunee Six Nations Confederacy and Council on or about April 21, 2006, not to proceed any further with any criminal charges arising from the raid by the O.P.P. on April 20, 2006 is outside of his authority and improperly interferes with the lawful duties of police officers of the O.P.P., the duties of Commissioner Boniface, Commissioner Fantino, and Inspector Haggith and the duties and obligations of the Attorney General of Ontario and constitutes misfeasance in public office. 

114. The Plaintiffs plead that the agreement made by the Minister of Aboriginal Affairs was made with the knowledge and acquiescence of the Attorney General of Ontario and that such acquiescence constitutes a violation of s. 5(b) of the Ministry of the Attorney General Act, R.S.O. 1990, c. M.17, as an administration of public affairs that is contrary to law and constitutes misfeasance in public office.

Last week an innocent property owner was severely injured in Caledonia. The back of his head was bashed in and he was further assaulted while unconscious.Dalton McGuinty is responsible for his lack of action on over 17 months of native aggression and crime against innocent residents and business owners.

Anyone who votes Liberal had better think twice about the safety of their homes, jobs, children and way of life. Under the Liberals our law has become extinct and the OPP useless.

We are on the road to anarchy

Aboriginal protesters left Sam Gualtieri one blow short of death when they ran away after attacking him in the house he was building in Caledonia, Ont., for his daughter and her fiancé, Mr. Gualtieri’s brother Joe said yesterday.

Joe Gualtieri said that his brother survived only because the gang of youths who were hitting his unconscious brother’s head with a piece of wood – possibly an oak rail from the house – ran away when one of Sam’s sons shouted: “He’s dead, he’s dead.”

Mr. Gualtieri was attacked after a Thursday protest stopped construction at the Stirling South building development in Caledonia, southwest of Hamilton. The 90-unit subdivision, on eight hectares, is about one kilometre from the disputed Douglas Creek development, which has been occupied by protesters from the nearby Six Nations reserve since February, 2006.

In an interview shortly after Sam Gualtieri underwent an MRI in a Hamilton hospital yesterday, his brother said Mr. Gualtieri was attacked when he went back to see what was happening at the house.

Joe Gualtieri said Ontario Provincial Police officers on the site “stood there, and they did not intervene” until after the beating, when the attackers had fled.

CALEDONIA (Sep 15, 2007)

It was a fight that had terrible consequences.

Duane Davies says he was with his Uncle Sam Gualtieri when the Caledonia builder was injured in a clash with native protesters Thursday.

In an interview, Davies said he, Gualtieri and two others were checking on the home when they saw a protester standing on the front porch.

“They started to heckle us, saying, ‘If you want a piece of this, come in here,'” said Davies.

The four went into the home and Gualtieri ordered the protesters out. Davies says he didn’t see who threw the first punch, but described Gualtieri struggling with one person while the others squared off.

The 33-year-old said he and a cousin left the house to grab two-by-fours and started back in to discover Gualtieri lying on the floor as he was struck with a piece of wood. Davies said he screamed to natives outside the house for help and the attackers fled.

Native protesters tell a different story. They say the builder and his companions entered the house and attacked them.

They say the protesters were only defending themselves.

Whichever way it went, Gualtieri’s family vows it won’t rest until the people responsible are brought to justice.

Gualtieri, 52, was beaten unconscious inside one of two homes he was building for his daughters in the Stirling South subdivision.

“This was a brutal, brutal attack,” said brother Joe Gualtieri. “Our family will not let this go.”

Sam was transferred to Hamilton General Hospital yesterday afternoon where he remains semi-conscious in serious condition.

Hearing late this afternoon that an illegal Native occupation in Caledonia had turned vicious and seen a local developer attacked and hospitalized by the Native Criminals, I spent the evening on the scene.

I arrived shortly before the OPP set up a barricade to keep residents away from their homes and to ensure that any non Natives could not walk down this public street, so I was able to stay behind that police line all evening.

When the criminal occupiers agreed to leave, some Native youth decided they were going to do their own land claim. While the OPP played bodyguard, they climbed a large dirt hill and planted a Warrior flag. Native elders were allowed in to bring food and water to the children who were dressed in typical warrior garb with masks and camouflage.

The racist political policing (or extreme lack of) known as 2 Tiered Justice was first referred to regarding Caledonia & DCE, but it is far from contained to one small town.

When Native Criminals took over the building site of what was to be a retirement home in Hagersville, the OPP not only stood and watched but assisted them in erecting a barricade to keep the legal owner of the property off of his land.

On June 29, 2007 the OPP closed the busiest highway in the Country the 401 because a small group of Native thugs said they might do it. No attempt was made to stop any of the blockades led by Terrorist Shawn Brant. Instead the Police we pay to protect us assisted him by blockading the road themselves.

When they laid a claim to the future site of a Wal-Mart in Dunville, nothing was done to stop them and the latest rumors are that Wal-Mart is canceling the building because of it.

When the Criminals showed up at a housing development in Brantford and demanded the construction of 200 new homes come to a halt, the OPP did nothing and the developer stopped.
