Today in a Hamilton Court House, ALL CHARGES WERE WITHDRAWN. There was insufficient evidence to proceed with a trial. (He wasn't even in the house when our two young men were attacked.) Needless to say his accuser couldn't even identify him!
Also, last Friday the OPP stormed Kanonhstaton to arrest one of our men. In the midst of this attack officers pointed their loaded guns at the heads of two of our women.
On Sunday during a ceremony at Kanonhstaton, a non-Native male climbed a fence onto Kanonhstaton and brandished a knife and physically and verbally threatened the life of 10 yr old boy who was partaking in the ceremony.
On Monday at Kanonhstaton a non-Native Male who resides in a house in front of Kanonhstaton* was drunk, erratically driving an ATV onto the site. He then began threatening our women. He was calling them derogatory names and told one of the women, " I know your husband is in jail, but I'll finish the job for him..." Basically sexually threatening an Indigenous woman. As far as I know, as of yet, there have been no charges laid.
This man also was witnessed grabbing a gas can and trying to set his own house on fire.
All in all, a very eventful weekend to say the least...
News rec'd by email from a Six Nations spokesperson
* The home of Dave Brown and Dana Chatwell, on Argyle St, Caledonia, sharing two boundaries with Six Nations reclamation site, Kanonhstaton (former Douglas Creek Estates), and the site of many irritations. The provincial government really should buy them out, (and move Dana's house) imo, and Sixth line too. Willing seller, willing buyer. no brainer.

Two Row Wampum Treaty

Two Row Wampum Treaty
"It is said that, each nation shall stay in their own vessels, and travel the river side by side. Further, it is said, that neither nation will try to steer the vessel of the other." This is a treaty among Indigenous Nations, and with Canada. This is the true nature of our relationships with Indigenous Nations of 'Kanata'.
