On April 21st 2012, Mark Vandermaas attempted to walk down the municipal road known as Surrey Street in Caledonia Ontario; he was assaulted by Mohawk “Warrior” Ken Green. Taking decisive action the OPP commander on the scene, Zupanic had Vandermaas arrested within seconds.

Yes it was Vandermaas, the victim of a crime who was immediately arrested, handcuffed, and placed in a little steel cage in a paddy wagon where he would remain for the next 2 hours. What was Mr. Green charged with you may ask. Nothing. Why? Because in Ontario race based policing is alive and kicking.

Zupanic followed this with directions to his officers. Arrest anyone on the non-Native side of the police line If they move one step. Not the Natives who were free to roam the line making threats and trying to provoke the peaceful residents and activists.

Thank you to the Mayor and council for their despicable and successful attack on the Regional News as today’s edition becomes the last.

Thanks to the many cowards too numerous to mention, that sat back and allowed their neighbors to be attacked, while Julian Fantino and Chris Lewis’ OPP officers looked on.

Thanks to the Chamber of Commerce and the business community that chose the almighty dollar over justice.

Thanks to those that won’t accept the class action money, and in not doing so, rewards McGuinty for bad behavior as well as a total disregard for law and order.

There are many people whom purport to be Christians, some non-practicing, others by convenience, but few by conviction.

When I hear Christians say, they are fearful of the many illegal situations Haldimand County has endured, is most puzzling to me.

Does God not command you, to fear not?  And doesn’t fearing the unknown, show a complete lack of faith in the Lord?

Try Psalm 23!  I will fear no evil.

Regardless of whether you’re a Christian or not, doesn’t the breakdown of the rule of law/justice, not concern you?

So let’s not sit around and grumble to our neighbors, about the slap on the wrist Richard Smoke received, for nearly killing Sam Gaultieri, it’s not his fault it’s yours.

On December 7 2011, I learned of an OPP raid on one of the illegal smoke shacks around Caledonia that was about to take place, and decided to check it out.

At first it appeared that the OPP were going to get the job done. They brought plenty of officers, a moving van to clear out the house the squatter built behind the shack, enough trucks and vans to take away anyone who interfered, and presumably some kind of orders to get the job done.

For those who have not yet heard, The Caledonia Eight is a group of people who on December 3, 2011 were arrested on Surrey Street in Caledonia because of the color of their skin. A trait over which they have no control.

The group consisting of Gary McHale, Merlyn Kinrade, Randy Fleming, Bonnie Stephens, Jack VanHalteren, Mark Vandermaas, Doug Fleming, & Jeff Parkinson had their freedom taken from them for walkilng down a public road owned by the Corporation of Haldimand County by order of the McGuinty government who does not own the road.

In early 2007, we first heard the heart wrenching story of a young lady named Pam Dudych who we called ‘Dancer’ at the time to protect her identity. When the OPP ran away from the Douglas Creek Estates on April 20 2006, they abandoned the residents of the Sixth Line road including young Pam.

At 14 years old she witnessed the worst of the terror in Caledonia as the Natives rampaged outside her front door. The OPP told her one day that if a Native broke into her home and attacked her, she would be the one charged if she defended herself. As a result she was forced to begin counselling and start taking medication.

Meanwhile the Natives decided to hang a skinned, beheaded deer on a hydro pole near her house where all the children on the school bus would see it. Protectors of mother earth indeed…

The first in a new series of featured videos from the extensive CANACE archives. 

When Christie Blatchford spoke to a packed house at the Chedoke Presbyterian Church in Hamilton Ontario on November 15 2010, CANACE founders were in attendance to bring you an exclusive preview of her Nationwide tour for Helpless – Caledonia’s Nightmare of Fear & Anarchy & How the Law Failed All Of Us.

Last night, (Jan 13 2011) Governor General Award winning author Christie Blatchford was a guest on TVO’s The Agenda with Steve Paikin where she discussed Caledonia and her book Helpless – Caledonia’s Nightmare of Fear and Anarchy and how the law failed all of us. 

Viewers were weighing in throughout the 32 minute interview via a web chat with mixed opinions. Some still fail to understand that there is no valid claim to DCE, some think that the words “land claim” possess the magical ability to absolve those who utter them of any responsibility for their actions, and some finally understand the facts that we have been presenting to the public for almost 5 years.

Starting 2011 on a happy note, the illegal “broken promises” shack on highway 6 south of Caledonia was smashed to the ground today in a combined effort by the Six Nations Band Council, the Six Nations Police, and the OPP. 

For those who may have missed it, here is some very satisfying, wholesome, heart warming, fun for the whole family footage from CHCH news that I have taken the liberty of slowing down so that those of us who don’t support selling bags of insect eggs & human feces riddled contraband tobacco that was probably scraped off the floor of a factory in China to children, may watch it repeatedly.

There is for the moment no audio in this clip because Youtube didn’t like my choice of Tiny Tim singing Tip toe through the tulips as a soundtrack.

UPDATE: With over 2000 unique views and climbing, my thanks to all who have taken the time to read this story. Perhaps if we get the word out to enough people, greedy Mr. Fantino & the OPPA will finally leave these families in peace.

Months after his reign as OPP commissioner ended, Julian Fantino is still trying to bully innocent victims into silence. The man Stephen Harper is said to have hand picked to run as the Federal Conservative candidate for Vaughan is trying to force the families of 2 disabled men who were shot and killed by police to pay him $17500.
 
The people Fantino wants cash from include 83 year old Evelyn Minty whose disabled son Douglas was shot dead outside her Elmvale home on June 22, 2009 and Ruth Schaeffer whose son Levi suffered from Schizophrenia and was shot through the heart at his private camp site in Northern Ontario by OPP officers on June 24, 2009.
 
The lawyer for the Minty and Schaeffer families, Julian Falconer calls the move to seek costs police intimidation which it certainly appears to be, and stated to the court “because the families have asked for police accountability, they will now be punished.”

In my early days with CANACE in late 2006 and early 2007, I was on a very regular basis told stories that saddened and repulsed me. I sat and listened to each and every resident who was willing to share with me what they had endured and over the course of 4 years; I thought I had heard the worst of if not all of them.

One exceptionally disturbing story unfolded in the summer of 2009, and managed to fly under the radar of many including myself. Many of us heard that a smoke shack had gone up at the farm of Caledonia resident Ernie Palmer, but I didn’t know too much about it at the time. We had a particularly busy year, and by the time we slowed down to catch our breath, the shack was gone.

I had the opportunity to meet Mr. Palmer on October 13 2010 and he generously allowed me to record that meeting. The only things I knew for sure when I arrived were that the facts were largely unclear to me, and that an interview with him would be interesting. The media reports that I had read in 2009 painted him as a collaborator, and the County had charged him with bylaw infractions for hosting the smoke shack.

I explained a bit about myself to Mr. Palmer and made clear to him that my objective was simple. I wanted to leave that day with the necessary information to tell his story in his words. I wound up spending a day with him, and the things I learned were absolutely shocking even to a 4 year veteran of the Caledonia crisis.

As a faithful Conservative, it is sometimes necessary to swallow my personal views about an issue so long as the party as a whole is doing the best job they can to represent us. That is not the case with the latest decision by Stephen Harper. 

Touting the tripe that he’s “good for the party” and under the apparent delusion that he’s a “law & order guy”, the Federal Conservatives are running former OPP commissioner Julian Fantino in the riding of Vaughan. This for me as a staunch Conservative constituent and as someone who has seen first hand the havoc that Julian Fantino wreaked on the town of Caledonia is too much to take quietly.

Steven “boots” Powless went on trial in Cayuga this week for Mischief, Obstructing Police, and Failure to comply with court ordered bail restrictions stemming from his proprietorship of an illegal smoke shack on the private property of Ernie Palmer. Ultimately “boots” was sent to jail, but not for selling illegal smokes, or for resisting arrest. 

The manner in which this unfolded is peculiar in my view. It’s not the illegal smokes that got him jailed, but his contempt for the Canadian justice system. Here’s how it went down.

For some time now, we’ve known that Julian Fantino was a lame duck commissioner. Sure he can still talk to the few who would want to listen, or rabble about how he is the commissioner, but we all know he’s on his way out, and nobody is crying the blues about it.

What we’ve not known until today is who would be hand picked by Dalton McGuinty to replace him. Would he find a genuine law and order police officer, or another lap dog to take Julian’s place? Speculation gave way today as McGuinty announced that deputy commissioner Chris Lewis will take the reigns when Julian steps down on August 1st.

I don’t think I’ve ever met Mr. Lewis, but after nearly 4 years of steady involvement in Caledonia, I do know a few things about him.
