VoC NOTE: This is a an important update to a VoC story called, “Courage in Caledonia has a name: Chris Syrie.”
VoiceofCanada and CaledoniaWakeUpCall.com have each obtained a DVD containing raw footage that shows – with crystal clear clarity – how the OPP follow a sickening and systemic race-based policing doctrine designed to allow native suspects to escape responsibility for their crimes.
This native ‘appeasement’ policy contrasts sharply with their aggressive arrests of law abiding citizens who wish to erect a Canadian flag as is their Constitutional right, and the eagerness of their leaders to slander and/or libel those who speak out against them.
The ‘policing’ practices on display in this video should go a long way in explaining exactly why the OPP was able to stand by as Caledonia was terrorized during the past year. You will understand – once and for all – why ‘outsiders’ must speak out for the citizens of Caledonia who, to this day, continue to be victimized by both the criminals and the Ontario Provincial Police.
A quick refresher about the Chris Syrie incident…
On Jan 10/07, Chris Syrie erected 2 Canadian flags on property he owns bordering the stolen Douglas Creek Estates along with 2 ‘NO TRESPASSING’ signs.
1. A lone native arrived, pulled the flag out of the ground and threw it on the ground. That’s right – threw it on the ground like it was a piece of garbage.
2. This thug then confronted Syrie toe-to-toe in a scene that immediately brought to mind the famous photo of the soldier – Warrior faceoff in Oka, Quebec. I had shivers running up and down my spine as I watched.

As mentioned above VoiceofCanada and CaledoniaWakeUpCall.com have each obtained a DVD containing raw footage of the entire Chris Syrie incident from start to finish. Today (Jan 25/07) CaledoniaWakeupCall.com has released an edited, annotated version from the footage that shows precisely how Two Tier Justice is practiced by the OPP.
Watch as a native thug goes onto Chris Syrie’s land, rips the flag out, throws it on the ground, confronts Chris toe-to-toe, and then stands around as the police make no effort to arrest or even identify him! They all stand around until the smiling members of the OPP’s ART (Aboriginal Response Team) arrive. Eventually, the bully (and his buddies – not shown in edited version) leave! Now, the OPP say they can’t identify him.
It’s one thing to hear the stories from the people who have experienced Two Tier Justice and it’s another to experience it yourself or to watch it unfold in living colour as it does in the latest Chris Syrie video.
I am reminded of the December 19-21 editorials run by both the St. Catharine’s Standard and the Toronto Star that said:
“The people of Caledonia – and Six Nations for that matter – have every right to expect to live their daily lives without fear of vandalism, assault or worse. The rule of law is paramount in Canada’s society and must be upheld.”
Clearly, neither the Premier of Ontario or the OPP Commissioner have grasped that message. We will continue to try to help them understand.
