…for sheer abuse of raw state power, nothing touches Caledonia – and where the G20 lasted but three days, the situation on the former Douglas Creek Estates remains formally unresolved.
Consider that, at its height, the following happened in Caledonia under the noses of the Ontario Provincial Police:
• Dave Brown, the best-known Caledonia resident after his 2009 lawsuit against the Ontario government and the OPP, and some others among the 450 residents who live adjacent to the DCE site, were forced for a time to show native-issued “passports” merely to get to their own homes. Their vehicles were occasionally subjected to arbitrary searches by self-appointed native security officers, with goods sometimes being seized.
• These same residents were sometimes subjected to arbitrary native-imposed curfews, and either not allowed home or allowed to leave.
