Canadian Advocates for Charter Equality (CANACE) has released a draft copy of a 101 page report documenting some of the violence and crime perpetrated against Caledonia residents – both native and non-native – during the occupation of the Douglas Creek Estates by native extremists.
‘The Human Costs of Illegal Occupations’ is based on various documents, letters, media reports, statements from residents, as well as evidence from our Ipperwash Papers project showing how events in Caledonia parallel those in Ipperwash, and how the official Inquiry suppressed evidence of native crimes against residents there.
‘The Human Costs’ is a ‘must-read’ for anyone who wishes to understand the awful price to be paid when lawlessness is tolerated by those tasked with the responsibility to prevent it.
The cover photo above shows Caledonia builder Sam Gualtieri in his hospital bed following his attempted murder by native occupiers who beat him inside the home he was building for his daughter.
