UPDATED 1924 EST June 19/09: Canada Free Press, June 15/09: Politicized policing, incites call for citizen militias
UPDATED 1529 EST June 19/09: Added LARGE TYPE PDF version of Star story & reader’s comments.
In ‘Proof positive native extremists have lost PR battle’ I laid out the evidence to show how native extremists have lost the support of the media and – just as importantly – their own communities.
Yesterday’s reaction by readers to a Toronto Star story regarding Doug Fleming’s Caledonia Militia idea shows just how much the public is fed up with the lawbreakers AND the McGuinty government.
After reading the story in which the Premier, Aboriginal Affairs Minister Brad Duguid and Community Safety & Correctional Services Minister Rick Bartolucci called the milita idea “unhelpful;” “dumb” and “shameful” 85 comments were left. Result: 77 positive comments for the militia, Fleming, and Caledonia. 5 negative comments. 3 neutral.
In other words, despite the scathing criticisms by three Liberal ministers 91% of readers who read their words – published by one of the biggest, most liberal newspapers in Canada – think the following:
1. McGuinty’s ministers are a bunch of twits;
2. They’re not buying justifications or tolerance of landclaim lawlessness anymore, and
3. They think the Caledonia Militia is a great idea. If you count the neutral comments, it means 94% of readers were either positive or neutral regarding the militia.
It must have been a tremendous blow to their egos to find out that they were wrong – that the public sees the Caledonia Militia as a legitimate reaction to their interference in policing.
BTW, the TorStar story had a link to the Hamilton Spec’s ‘let’s rewrite history’ story as discussed in my last post, ‘More BS in Caledonia: Spectator helps smokeshacker spread it thick & wide.’ This makes the positive number of comments even more impressive!
CHTV coverage – positively inspired!
CHTV had some positively brilliant coverage featuring Doug Fleming. In an interview by Donna Skelly and Lawrence Diskin, Doug’s common sense and understanding of history shone forth while Skelly firmly announced that she supported Doug 100%.
When Diskin disagreed Skelly asked him a question to which he had no answer: “What would YOU do?”
- CHTV, June 17/09: Doug Fleming interview
- CHTV, June 17/09: Caledonia Militia report (watch the camera linger on the cartoon on Doug’s T-shirt.)
It doesn’t get much clearer than this, folks: McGuinty and the native extremists he loves so very much have lost the battle for the hearts and minds of the public, and are now seen as the villains in the eyes of Ontario for victimizing Caledonians.
(Whewww! It’s been a tough struggle, but it sure was worth it!)
McGuinty gov’t repeatedly failed to investigate complaints vs. Fantino
The Liberal insults are more than a little disingenuous considering that Bartolucci and his predecessor Monte Kwinter have refused to investigate serious complaints against Julian Fantino for his role in…
- Enforcing racial policing;
- Interfering with the investigation into the violence that erupted when smokeshackers assaulted peaceful non-native protesters and police on Dec 01/07;
- Threatening elected officials;
- Smearing the reputations of non-native activists with false allegations.
You can read the whole sick history and see actual documents showing how Dalton’s boys ignored the complaints and evidence out of Caledonia and covered Fantino’s ass since Day 1 at this link:

Politically-correct racism behind attempts to bury the truth
It is interesting to note that two cabinet Ministers and the Premier saw nothing wrong in openly attacking a non-native activist who clearly intends to act within the law in order to defend the rights of the victims their government has ignored, but I am not aware of a single instance where a minister has publicly criticized native groups during the reign of terror they foisted on Caledonia, or Hagersville, or Cayuga, or Brantford, etc.
It isn’t the first time a McGuinty minister has publicly attacked non-native activists for merely exercising their rights. On April 07/08, former Aboriginal Affairs Minister Michael Bryant publicly insulted me regarding my complaint to the Ontario Human Rights Complaint, implying that I, as a non-native, had no right to complain about alleged human rights violations by Fantino and the OPP.

Not only has the McGuinty government insulted non-native activists, Fantino has a nasty, well-documented history of making wild accusations against us. In sharp contrast to his treatment of us however, he testified at McHale’s trial that he has never made derogatory remarks about native protesters in public – despite their extreme lawlessness. He also testified he has never met with non-native protesters as he has with natives.
- VoC, Nov 27/08: Fantino testimony at McHale trial: what the media didn’t report
Given the volumes of evidence for the terrible costs of racial policing on innocent people that were made available to them that they simply pretended didn’t exist, it is simply beyond the pale for McGuinty and crew to pretend that everything in Caledonia was, is or will be ‘just fine’ if non-native activists stopped being so “unhelpful.”
Subverting justice, OPP and AG working together
The conduct of the AG’s lawyers has been nothing short of reprehensible in enforcing and perpetuating government/OPP policies of racial policing. They have ensured that non-natives are prosecuted for offences like suggesting a road be blocked while natives escape charges for assaulting police and days-long highway blockades. Serious charges are dropped for natives and one who attacked police even got a character reference from Fantino to aid him in his sentencing for leading the assault that sent Gary McHale to hospital on Dec 01/07.
Some of these issues are before the Court now thanks to Gary McHale. In one case the Crown is trying to prevent the laying of charges against 3 senior government officials by arguing McHale doesn’t even have the right to present the evidence to a court! That’s because the Crown knows that the JP is required to issue process if there is some evidence to support each required element of the charge – all thanks to Parkinson v.R., a landmark ruling brought about by two CANACE founders, Jeff Parkinson & Gary McHale.
One day Canada will know the extraordinary lengths that a small group of people went to in order to seek justice in and outside the courts for innocent victims of native extremism. And they will also know the extraordinary lengths the Ontario government went to in order to try to suppress the truth and stop officials from being held accountable.
These articles by Gary McHale give just a taste of how justice is being subverted by the AG and the OPP:
- Regional News, May 06/009: Fantino intervenes to drop charges against Powless?
- Regional News, April 29/09: Court testimony exposes OPP propaganda
- Regional News, April 01/09: Clyde Powless charged; Crown removed
- Regional News, March 25/09: OPP officers charged for aiding native protesters
- Regional News, March 18/09: Fantino fined by Cayuga Court
Instead of investigating the outrageous conduct exposed by our complaints, the Ontario government has gone out of its way to bury the evidence and paint those of us who did complain as being ‘vexatious’ or ‘frivolous’ for filing our (well-documented) complaints. Can anyone believe that such sleazy accusations and wilful blindness would have been turned towards native complainants?
Indeed, the politically-correct racism that birthed racial policing was on display for all to see in the comments by McGuinty, Duguid and Bartolucci. I guess they don’t have much choice but to keep up the attacks on non-natives; the alternative – admitting they covered up the truth – is just not an option.
And, finally, let’s not forget the biggest fraud of all by McGuinty & Co. – using the recommendations from an Inquiry that never studied the issue of lawlessness against residents during land claim disputes as justification for telling non-natives to be patient while they are victimized during a land claim dispute.
- CANACE report/Regional News series: McGuinty’s Ipperwash Cover-up: the Caledonia Legacy
Two years ago members of Ontario’s PC Party and the NDP were provided with all the evidence they needed to expose the Liberal con-job of using the Ipperwash Inquiry as justification for allowing race-based policing to continue, but have done nothing with it. For shame.
Yes, let’s move forward!
Bartolucci says “Caledonia residents want to move forward.” For three years we have been moving forward down an evil road that can only lead to a dark hole. How about we stop the car, turn around and ‘move backwards’ instead – down the ‘rule of law’ road where the rights all citizens are respected without regards to race?
Now THAT would be ‘helpful.’
P.S. A major media outlet has asked us to provide some of our extensive collection of court documents to them. Truth always rises to the top.
P.P.S. To McGuinty, Bartolucci and Duguid – we’re ready to talk when you are. Call me anytime, day or night: 519.457.0709.
