Posted By John Paul ZronikBrantford is stepping up its legal action against Six Nations protesters, asking that eight native activists be found in contempt of court for breaching an injunction prohibiting protests at city development sites.
A notice of motion filed by the city in Ontario Superior Court on Tuesday and served to the Six Nations protesters this week asks the court to declare those named to be in contempt for breaching the city’s injunction, granted by Ontario Superior Court Justice G.E.
Taylor on June 2.
The documents say the protesters breached the injunction during incidents that took place between July 7 and 14 in the city’s northwest industrial park, when protesters shut down work on two construction projects, a new Hampton Inn hotel and a warehouse being
built by Kingspan Insulation.
