Imagine if the Indians and the Cavalry ganged up on the Settlers.
That’s what happened in Caledonia.
But it looks like all the bad publicity targeting the cops and the Indians is finally paying dividends for the good guys:
The OPP not only refused to arrest Keefer as he was trespassing, they have also refused to arrest the native man who assaulted me while I was carrying the monument on Feb 27th, and they have refused to arrest the same man who assaulted CANACE cameraman Jeff Parkinson at our subsequen March 27/11 Truth & Reconciliation Rally where we were swarmed, the monument stolen, smashed and then burnt along with our Canadian flag – as OPP officers stood and watched. (…)
McHale’s last court date on the now-dropped charge was a May 04/11 bail hearing where the Crown finally dropped the bail restrictions that kept him out of Caledonia.
Christie Blatchford was present, and after reviewing transcripts of the arresting officer’s outrageous testimony from the first bail review session on April 19/11, wrote a scathing article comparing the law in Haldimand County to America’s Deep South:
“…the law in Haldimand County operates as the law in America’s Deep South once worked, where there was one law for the white man, who could break it with impunity, and another for the black man.
“In Haldimand County, since the occupation began, there has been one law for natives and another for non-natives.”
