The Ontario PCs pounded Michael Bryant this week over alleged interference with the OPP in connection with the 4 day Six Nations highway blockade that began on April 25/08. The blockade was begun to force the OPP to stop arresting native protesters in Deseronto. During the blockade, natives threatened to ‘carve up’ OPP officers and kill their families.

On April 29/08 MPP Toby Barrett questioned why arrests were made in Deseronto and not in Caledonia.
On May 07/08 Toby Barrett came out to speak at our presentation in Cayuga where we released our latest CANACE report, ‘Legalized MYTHS of Illegal Occupations’ (link above).
This week he and PC leader Bob Runciman have been pounding on Aboriginal Affairs Minister Michael Bryant, calling for his resignation for his alleged role in interfering with the OPP in the Caledonia/Deseronto confrontations:
- April 29/08: Barrett questions Bryant on double-standard
- May 01/08: Barrett calls for Solicitor General’s resignation
- May 05/08: Barrett asks Bryant to resign
- May 13/08: Barrett and Runciman call for RCMP investigation
- May 14/08: Caledonia Cover-Up
- May 14/08: Minister Bryant provides ‘less than fulsome’ answer to local homebuilder (see also, ‘Cayuga builder authorizes CANACE to gather evidence for criminal charges)
- May 15/08: ‘Caledonia Cover-Up’ continued and Cayuga
- May 16/08: More on the Caledonia Cover-Up
Our compliments to Mr. Barrett and Mr. Runciman for sinking their teeth into those responsible for the outrageous state of affairs in Ontario with respect to land claim lawlessness.
Not the first time Bryant has allegedly interfered with policing in Caledonia
On behalf of CANACE I sent emails – with follow-up calls – to the Queen’s Park offices of Toby Barrett, Bob Runciman and Tim Hudak to advise them of some important developments that are occurring behind the scenes, and to remind them of the allegations in the Brown/Chatwell suit regarding Michael Bryant’s role in approving deals not to prosecute native criminals and not to call in the military to protect Caledonia.

- Monte Kwinter letter, May 03/06: Promise to natives not to call in military
Hopefully, the PCs will raise this earlier alleged police interference in the Legislature.
The PCs did a bang-up job this week on behalf of the people of Ontario, and I look forward to more of the same until this bankrupt excuse of a government is forced to account for its fraud on the people of Ontario. If you haven’t already done so, be sure to read the latest CANACE report, ‘Legalized MYTHS of Illegal Occupations‘ – it reveals the utter lack of legal justification for race-based policing.
