According to media sources, the illegal blockade started by Shawn Brant of a bridge in Deseronto has been brought to an end by the OPP and Tyendinaga police. Reports say that some of the criminals fled when confronted by Police, and 13 were arrested for mischief.
According to the Belleville Intelligencer who shot some video at the scene, “native dissident Jerome Barnhart arrived around 8:30 this morning and chased media away from the scene.
“Clad in camouflage and wearing white sneakers, Barnhart barreled across Highway 49 shortly after 8:30 a.m. barking orders that all media “should get away from here right now.
“You need to leave right now, or else,” he said, his finger now pointing down the highway.
“The CBC is not allowed here and neither are you. Get the f—k out. And don’t be pulling off the road down there … we’re going to be watching you and where you go.” A vehicle with individuals from the protest group followed the retreating reporter from the scene.”
