Vandermaas email to OPP officer re April 21 DCE rally before two ‘breach of peace’ arrests

120421 Sign carried by Mark Vandermaas & other anti-violence/racism protesters onto occupied Douglas Creek Estates, CaledoniaOn April 18/12 an officer from the plain-clothed OPP ‘Provincial Liaison Team’ sent me an email politely inquiring as to what day we would be holding our planned march onto the Douglas Creek Estates in Caledonia. Gary McHale had refused to disclose the information, and she was hoping I would. I wrote back to her on April 19 explaining why I would not do so. The email is below. But, before we get there…

Mark Vandermaas – arrested for being the victim of an assault by a native radical

Keep in mind while reading my message to her that just two days later, on April 21/12, she and her OPP partner (wearing blue/black jackets in photo below) would watch a native occupier (red hat, sunglasses, dark coat) chase after me and assault me by blocking my path and chest-butting me as I carried a sign saying ‘HEALING BEGINS WITH APOLOGIES.’

Jerry Agar, CFRB/SUN TV: ‘Caledonia is a festering boil of racist policy’ that discriminates against Whites, Blacks, Jews etc.

Jerry Agar, host for SUN NEWS TV & CFRB Newstalk Radion 1010, Toronto“Caledonia is a festering boil of racist policy…and the buck stops on McGuinty’s desk. […] OPP officers are tasked with carrying out a racist policy and there’s a time at which an officer has to say following orders is not good enough.”

Those of us who have worked to preserve the rule of law, and educate the public about the legalized myths underlying the racial policing seen in Caledonia, are pleased to see the growing media interest in the recent arrests of the Caledonia 8 and our success in finally breaching the segregated Douglas Creek Estates for the first time on Feb 18/12.  

In the eyes of talk show host Jerry Agar, who hosts on both SUN News TV and CFRB Newstalk 1010 in Toronto, innocent people with white pigment in their skin are not expendable in Caledonia, any more than any other race or culture is expendable, and the police need to stop obeying illegal orders, and honour their oaths of office to uphold the law according to the Ontario Police Services Act — even if it means telling their bosses and political masters to go to hell.

Agar went even further by effusively praising the Caledonia 8 ‘anglo white guys’ (one of our number is a very proud and strong woman named Bonnie Stephens, but I’m not complaining, just being factual) and our ‘NO JEWS ALLOWED BY ORDER OF MCGUINTY’ signs (for which Gary McHale was arrested), and called for Jewish organizations and others to get involved in helping us end the racist policies that keep Jews out of the Douglas Creek Estates occupation site, just as it keeps Blacks, Whites and other races out.

A very big worm is turning in our country: it has now become ‘officially safe’ for the media and citizens to openly talk about institutionalized racism against people with white skin.

VIDEO: The Caledonia Eight Arrested

UPDATED Dec 09/11 — CANACE’s Director of Multimedia Production Jeff Parkinson has released a short movie that tells the story of the arrests of the Caledonia 8 on the Douglas Creek Estates on Dec 03/11.

Jeff himself was arrested, but handed the camera over to Christine McHale when it was his turn line to wear handcuffs so she could continue documenting the scene. Jeff is shown kneeling in the photo below.

TRIVIA: You’ll see a rather humorous scene where I’m bent over trying to get into the paddy wagon but the door is too small for my shoulders and it was almost impossible to twist sideways with my hands cuffed. As you watch me try to get through the door you’ll hear me say, “If the van doesn’t fit you must acquit” (with apologies to Johnny Cochran).

MORE TRIVIA: While we were inside the van Jeff asked if anyone knew any civil rights songs so I led the seven of us (Gary McHale was taken by other means of transport) in ‘We Shall Overcome,’ so that’s my voice you first hear singing from inside the van. I didn’t see Bonnie so I assumed she had been taken away with Gary, but she was, in fact, with us in another part of the paddywagon:

There was a separate, small cell built into the van directly behind the front passenger side seat.  I was sitting in there, but I could see out because there were rows of small holes in the side, sliding door that closed off the approximately 4′ x 4′ “cell” where I was.  I could hear you guys behind me in the back.  I heard you talking to each other, but I couldn’t make out all the words.  I heard you singing and I joined in, and I heard Randy Fleming most clearly, so that might help you figure out where I was in relation to yourself.  I think that you were on the driver side, so I was across from you. I might add that I was quite proud of my calmness because I am very claustrophobic.”

City of Toronto approves racially segregated park land

CANACE, founded by Gary McHale, and the Caledonia Victims Project, founded by Mark Vandermaas, are holding an Information Rally in High Park in Toronto on May 28, 2011 in order to inform the public about the dangers to public safety regarding the ongoing illegal occupation of High Park by Native protesters. The illegal occupation in High Park is being conducted under the banner of Six Nations and Mohawk warriors.

The City of Toronto has already decided to fence off the park land where Native protesters have stated they will continue to use the land at will. There is little doubt non-Natives will be banned from the area in order to appease the protesters.

Freedom Party of Ontario anti-racist ads suppressed?

PaulMcKeever.ca, Jan 30/11: International Free Press Society sounds alarm about suppression of Freedom Party's anti-racism adsAs reported here on VoiceofCanada the Freedom Party of Ontario recently released video ads supporting one of the planks in its election platform calling for an end to race-based education such as the Toronto School Board’s ‘Africentric’ school for Blacks only.

Those ads were pulled from YouTube after a complaint from CTV shortly after McKeever appeared on CFRB 1010.

The International Free Press Society’s Canadian Chapter (IFPS-Canada) has the complete story, and Paul McKeever, leader of the party has posted his thoughts online:

VoC Comment

1. Alas, we know only too well how key information, hard news and opinion is suppressed. The McGuinty government intimidated CHTV after interviewing Gary McHale. A completed CBC documentary based on OPP/occuper radio traffic proving the occupiers authorized the shooting of civilians and police was pulled shortly before our FantinoGate news conference in the Queen’s Park Media Studio. Other than this one, suppressed attempt there was no other investigative reporting done in Caledonia until Christie Blatchford arrived on the scene.

Freedom Party gov’t would end race-based public schools – ‘One race: the human race’

UPDATED — The Freedom Party of Ontario has been releasing election planks since October 2010 in advance of the 2011 provincial election. It has just issued a media release along with a supporting video advertisement that highlights the promises a permanent end to racially-based schools such as the ‘Africentric’ public school opened by the Toronto School Board in 2009.

Toronto’s Africentric School Dealt a Blow in New Election Ad

Freedom Party’s “Two Alis” ad takes a swing at McGuinty and Hudak

January 25, 2011 Toronto – In September of 2009, a taxpayer-funded “Africentric” public school was opened in Toronto. A 2011 election plank issued today by Freedom Party of Ontario proposes that the school be closed, and that the law be changed to prevent Ontario school boards from opening such schools ever again.

The plank is being promoted with a new pre-election video advertisement that condemns Liberal Premier Dalton McGuinty and Progressive Conservative opposition leader Tim Hudak for doing nothing to prevent taxpayer funding of Toronto’s race-based public school.

“Dalton McGuinty feigned concern about the opening of a race-based school, but refused to take any steps to prevent Toronto’s Africentric school from being opened” says Freedom Party leader Paul McKeever. “Tim Hudak – who continued to champion taxpayer funding for faith-based education even after his party’s 2007 election loss – did not oppose the opening of the race-based school.
