When I started CanaceHD in September of 2010, it was nothing more than a stable place to host The Ernie Palmer Story which I knew I would soon be filming, but a series of events lead me to an experiment which has worked out somewhat better than expected.

With over a Million views I thought it might interest some to know a bit about how CanaceHD came to be.

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.

Community Corruption

December 1st 2011

By Jeff Parkinson

Earlier this year, Haldimand Mayor Ken Hewitt graced us with an endorsement of the construction of up to 200 new 450’ high wind turbines in Haldimand County, and a TV commercial called Community Commitment for the Samsung C&T Corporation which has mysteriously vanished from Youtube, but I have a copy so it will be back in due time.

Many have offered editorial responses through the local papers, & I thought seriously about a lengthy editorial here about why this is wrong, but decided instead on a video to sum up my thoughts on the relationship between Mr. Hewitt, Dalton McGuinty, & Samsung C&T.

The above preview for this video was released on November 12 2011, and frankly it did better than I expected, so here without further adieu is Community Corruption.

For those who may be concerned, if anyone with the means and motivation should try to get this video pulled, I have 8 backup copies ready to go so far which can easily become 20, 40, or 60 if need be.

Remember to share it if you like it, & stay tuned as December will be a big month for new releases at CanaceHD.

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…

During the CANACE truth & reconciliation rally on Sunday February 27, Gary McHale had a long, respectful conversation with Six Nations Elder Jan Longboat. Unfortunately the two leaders were surrounded by radicals who insisted on interrupting repeatedly, but ultimately the respectful dialogue continued until the two came to an agreement to separate the 2 sides.

The plan was simple. McHale would take the CANACE crew and residents South down Argyle Street, and Longboat would lead her people north to DCE.

When Caledonia resident Doug Fleming held an anti illegal smoke shack protest on April 11 2010, the only people who showed up to support the shack were some students from CUPE 3903 lead by political commentator Tom Keefer, and a couple of small children waving propaganda signs.

A stark contrast to December 1st 2007 when Native supporters of the same shack violently attacked residents and activists resulting in Jeff Parkinson and Gary McHale being hospitalized which is a topic and a video for another day.

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.

I remember some years ago when Ontario introduced new graphic warning labels on cigarette packages to dissuade me from smoking like it was yesterday. The reason that memory is so vivid is because once I got a look at one, I ran out to purchase several packs to send to relatives in other provinces. 

I waited in the long line at the smoke shop (not to be confused with an illegal Native smoke shack) and when my turn came I anxiously and enthusiastically asked the elderly lady behind the counter “Do you have the limp wiener packs?” “Yes” she responded while trying without success not to grin. “Awesome! Can I get 5 of them?” she was unable to keep herself from laughing and neither were most of the dozens of people lined up in the store. 

What we were laughing about and what I was anxious to share with some smokers in my family who are spread across the Country was a warning label that was shaped decidedly like a limp penis with a warning that smoking cigarettes can make you impotent. You could argue that I was young and immature for seeing great humour in this, but the fact that the entire store laughed affirmed my point of view that this was nothing more than a limp (pun intended) attempt by our over zealous government to make themselves appear anti smoking while collecting billions in taxes from smokers.

While reading an excellent story by Mark Vandermaas about why Conservatives can’t trust the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, I remembered a ‘feature’ video I had seen from CBC some time ago praising the wonderful residential school system and showing happy Native children learning about such things as Valentines Day, and “the mastery of words”. 

Mr. Vandermaas’s story documents the failure of the CBC to present any unbiased reports on the victims of Caledonia and their willingness to instead provide air time to the criminals. At issue specifically is their unwillingness to run a story that they have been working on about the growing dissention in the ranks of the Conservatives as a result of Fantino joining the party.  

Before we have a look at the 1955 residential school video, let’s look at a clip of one of the interviews that CBC conducted with Mr. McHale on the Fantino topic. While this was being filmed in front of Fantino headquarters in Vaughan, Julian was seen sneaking out the back door and driving away. 

Presented by CanaceHD, It’s best viewed at 720p which may take some time to buffer depending on your connection. Some editing was necessary due to excessive wind noise.

Conservatives Against Fantino had the pleasure of attending the only public all candidates debate in Vaughan last night to hear what Julian Fantino & his opponents had to say to the voters with only 5 days left until the by election in which Fantino hopes to unseat the Liberals. 

Unfortunately for the voters and for all who believe in Democracy, Mr. Fantino blew off the event. Organizers made every effort to accommodate Julian including rescheduling this event to suit his schedule, but he was unwilling to engage his opponents in a public debate.

Update: A few people have reported difficulty in viewing these video’s at 720p (HD) so I have changed the embedded video’s to play at a lower resolution.

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.

Yesterday, CANACE executive director Gary McHale was a guest on the Michael Coren show on CTS. The appearance was another milestone for us and for Haldimand County as Coren is a national show with a very well respected host.

This brings us one large step closer to informing the general public who in many cases are still clueless about what’s happening in small town Ontario.
