National Post’s Barbara Kay: Caledonia “terrorized…with racist (anti-white) police complicity”

Appeal for help from foreign government by Caledonia resident, 2006. The National Post’s Barbara Kay recently included the treatment of Caledonia residents at the hands of the OPP in a column about recent abuses of power by police.

It is, to the best of my knowledge, the first time a ‘mainstream media’ journalist has pointed out that the people of Caledonia were deemed expendable to OPP brass and the McGuinty government because of the colour of their skin:

[…] Most alarmingly, we saw disgusting underreaction in the years-long nightmare of Caledonia — “the town that law forgot” — when militants from the Six Nations reserve terrorized local inhabitants with racist (anti-white) police complicity. In this case, individual policemen cannot be faulted for directives that came from the top. (Then) OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino’s head should have rolled over Caledonia, and his political credibility been forever shredded. The same goes for Ontario Premier McGuinty. […]

Bravo to Barbara Kay! Thank you for speaking the oh-so-politically-incorrect truth on this.

The only thing I would mention is the anti-white racism on the part of journalists that made it politically possible for the OPP and McGuinty to write off Caledonia’s victims – even to this day. I refer readers to a recent VoC story about how in 2007 the CBC buried – at the last minute – a documentary exposing that native occupiers has authorized the shooting of police and civilians in Caledonia:

Imagine if I was a native person and had real evidence that some white group was instructing their people to kill natives, do you think the CBC would pull the story? […] If the people of Caledonia were black, native, Muslim or any other politically correct group then CBC would have teams of people covering the plight of the residents. However, because most people in Caledonia have white skin the CBC doesn’t have time for Caledonia.

  2. Hi Mark
    I am so glad to see that, “ever so slowly”, the mainstream media is starting to get the story out on how Caledonia’s citizens charter rights have been disregarded and trampled since 2006. Perhaps between people like Christie Blatchford and her book Helpless and Toby Barrett repeatedly calling for an inquiry into the handling of Caledonia we can actually get the entire truth out there for all to see. 2011 is shaping up to be a promising year. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and a great new year!!

    VoC REPLY: Hi Larry, Merry Christmas to you! Next year does look promising. Some good stuff is starting to happen behind the scenes, too, that I can’t talk about. No promises, no guarantees, of course. All we can do is make the most of the opportunities we’re given.

    Still, let’s not kid ourselves; the groups who terrorized Caledonia (OPP, 6N, McG’s Libs) still aren’t admitting they did anything wrong, and until that happens there will be no real healing, much as the appeasers would like you to believe it because ‘everything’s quiet now.’ I remember someone making that very same argument to me in 2007 – the day before Sam Gualtieri was nearly murdered.

    Good to hear from you! Regards, Mark
