A little trip down memory lane…
Negotiators trying to resolve an aboriginal protest in Caledonia, Ont., say the occupation will be over soon.
“I think they are close to a solution, and I’m very happy with the way things are going,” Mohawk Confederacy Chief Alan McNaughton said Friday.
McNaughton said he expects the blockades set by protesters across the main road through town will be removed within a week.
“We are making progress,” Peterson said. “Obviously one of the things we are working very hard on to help turn the temperature down is to see if we can clear away some of the roadblocks.”
“We’ve made some real progress and I think everyone is very optimistic now.”

It was Peterson who derided the people who supported Gary McHale’s inaugural Oct 15/06 ‘March for Freedom’ as being ‘whackos.’
Who’s the whacko now, David? We now have the makings of an insurrection as the HDI tries to impose another unelected, un-accountable level of government on Ontario citizens through extortion. Violent natives have sent people to the hospital. The OPP have defacto declared that the Charter of Rights no longer applies to non-natives. And the provincial government is facing millions in lawsuits over the failure of the government to enforce the law.
To all those so-called community ‘leaders’ who swallowed the horseshit that this was going to be over in a couple of weeks, and refused to stand up for the people of Caledonia and the rule of law for the past two years: shame on you all.
