With a few strokes of the pen, it appears that the McGuinty government is once again set to cover for their appointed civil rights destructor, Julian Fantino. Mr. Fantino told the media just days ago that he intends to “vigorously” defend himself against the criminal charge he’s facing as a result of his threatening email to Haldimand council in 2007, but the crown (an employee of the McGuinty Liberals) appears to be quickly taking steps to subvert the efforts of CANACE and a superior court judge to see Mr. Fantino face the music.

After being cleared of any wrong doing by Monte Kwinter before an investigation into complaints against him had been written, Fantino was emboldened to continue to his campaign against the charter rights and freedoms of non-Native citizens in Ontario, and escalated both his rhetoric against us, and his orders to oppress us. See FantinoGate, this site, Caledoniawakeupcall.com, voiceofcanada, & CANACE for in depth coverage of his attacks on democracy.

We have always had faith in the justice system to uphold the laws that the OPP have refused to, and as such we moved the battle to restore law and order into the courts in January 2008. It began with my efforts to see a Haldimand councillor charged after an assault on me, and exploded into superior court where judges have upheld our beliefs and consistently rebuked the crown for their position that OPP officers and government officials are not subject to the law during a Native land claim.

One of the most significant battles CANACE has faced for the past 3 + years is a propaganda war initiated by the OPP and in particular by Julian Fantino. Today what I would submit is the most significant article written by anyone in the mainstream media in the almost 4 years since DCE was seized by weaponized toddlers appeared in the Globe & Mail.

From the day that Fantino was appointed commissioner of the OPP, he has stated “there is one law for all” and worked very hard to ensure that the opposite is true, but in order to enforce race based policing he needed the majority of the public to believe that he was acting in good faith as an actual police officer instead of as a tyrannical puppet of the McGuinty government.

To that end, he simply told the media that the OPP have been doing the best they can, preserving the peace in a delicate and complicated situation, and an abundance of other catch phrases and buzz words designed to fool everyone into thinking he was doing his job instead of working to subvert the foundation of justice itself.

rollies_worse_for_health_study_1477525218Haldimand-Norfolk MPP Toby Barrett is calling on both the provincial and federal governments to reduce taxes on legal cigarettes in order to tackle the ever present problem of contraband cigarettes being sold out of makeshift shacks. According to Mr. Barrett, the main reason why the contraband cigarette trade exists is the high taxes on legal cigarettes. Cut taxes and you dry up the contraband trade. Sounds good? Not really.

First, governments would never be able to sufficiently lower cigarette taxes to make legal cigarettes competitive. I have spoken with RCMP officials in Cornwall, an area that makes the contraband cigarette trade in Caledonia look miniscule, and they say lowering taxes would have little effect. There’s a difference of about $50 to $60 per carton, at least, and no government will give up that much money. Ontario alone took in just over 1.2 billion dollars in revenue from cigarette taxes in fiscal 2007-2008, Canada took in over 2.6 billion for the same period and all provinces and federal revenue for 2007-2008 was just under 7 billion dollars. Taxes would be raised somewhere else to make up for any shortfall, especially in the tough economic times of today when governments are scrambling for money anyways. Lower tax here only mean we would all end up paying higher taxes somewhere else. Just what we need in tough economic times.

In a move that is surprising even to someone like myself who has seen and heard things which most people would call unthinkable while involved in the Caledonia crisis these last years, the McGuinty government has now officially endorsed the sale of cigarettes to children in Haldimand County.

To quote a Feb 5 story from the Simcoe Reformer which uncovered this despicable, duplicitous act by the same government who has endorsed the lawlessness by Native extremists since 2006 many times in many ways:

The Ministry of Health pays the province’s 36 health units $50 million a year for youth smoking programs. Most of that is spent monitoring convenience stores to ensure they are not selling to minors.

Enforcement officers, however, are not allowed to go near the biggest source of contraband tobacco in the province — native smoke shops. Thousands of smoke shops have popped up in recent years on the province’s 163 reserves. Locally, a handful have set up illegally in Haldimand County along Highway 6.

A carton of cigarettes at a convenience store costs about $80. However, a baggie of 100 cigarettes typically sells at a native smoke shop for as little as $7. Yet the McGuinty government has told the Haldimand-Norfolk Health Unit that the smoke shops of Haldimand County are off-limits to enforcement staff.”

In a story in today’s Simcoe Reformer, we learned that the cowardly McGuinty government is trying to force Norfolk County to restrict development and consult with Six Nations on any archaeological finds in the County.

 an overall guide to how and where growth will occur in the county — was changed by the province to say the Six Nations reserve must be told of any archeological finds in the county.”

Fortunately our Mayor and Council don’t seem inclined to lie down and accept this nonsense without a fight.

“They have no claim in our territory at all — remove the language,” Mayor Dennis Travale said during Tuesday night’s council meeting. “I want the language about the Six Nations of the Grand River taken out.”

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!

Note: This story required some amount of editing to remove excessive political correctness so my comments will be bracketed and in bold throughout.

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.

Road blockades that are a headache for police, create anxiety and threaten people’s safety are no way to resolve long-standing aboriginal land disputes, Premier Dalton McGuinty said yesterday as a Mohawk barricade was dismantled in eastern Ontario. (Edit: The same McGuinty who claimed in 2006 he wasn’t going to negotiate with the DCE terrorists and then resumed negotiations within 48 hours)

It’s time Ottawa chipped in more cash to cover the ballooning expense of a southern Ontario aboriginal occupation that’s cost provincial taxpayers $50 million and counting, Premier Dalton McGuinty said Tuesday.

Although the federal government gave Ontario $26 million a year ago for costs associated with the Caledonia occupation, the province has since paid out $50 million on top of that contribution – the bulk of it for round-the-clock policing. (Edit: The Spectator told us just weeks ago that the total cost of the occupation so far is $54 Million.. Now we’re up to $76 Million. Do I hear $150 Million?)

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.

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!

With the first March presented by CANACE now in the history books, I’m pleased to report that it was a great success.

Video, and news reports of the day are available now at www.caledoniawakeupcall.com/topics/RememberUs.html

Hundreds of people took time out of their Thanksgiving day to come and hear the speeches and to March for Freedom with us and to you all we are grateful. Merlyn Kinrade, Joe Gualtieri, Mark Vandermaas, and Gary McHale all gave excellent heart felt speeches but it was Dancer who truly stole the show.

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?
