CANACE presentation to Brantford Council

1 10 2008

UPDATED 1437 EST Oct 02/08

On Monday, Sept 29/08 CANACE VP/Director of Research, Mark Vandermaas, and Treasurer/Caledonia Liaison, Merlyn Kinrade, addressed the Public Forum Committee of Brantford Council in a 10 minute presentation of, ‘Reconciliation: the CANACE Path.’

“Our short-term goal is to preserve the rule of law and Ontario’s economy by ending race-based policing and land claim lawlessness,” Vandermaas told council, while three city police officers kept watch in the chamber.

“Our long-term goal is to force politicians to pass legislation to ensure this never happens again. We must create a province and a country where true reconciliation between natives and non-natives is possible based on truth, justice and respect for the rights of all human beings.”

New CANACE corporation, new CANACE website

31 07 2008

UPDATED 1825 EST July 31/08

Until recently, CANACE existed as an informal group of activists working together for a common goal. As our credibility grew, however, potential donors and supporters made it clear they wanted to see CANACE become formalized and more accountable.

With the help of donors from inside and outside Caledonia, we have now registered a federal corporation as we continue to move forward with the struggle to preserve the rule of law in Ontario and promote reconciliation between native and non-native peoples based on truth, justice and respect for the rights of all citizens regardless of race or grievance.

On July 13/08 CANACE issued three strongly worded editorials to aggressively confront an attempt by a coalition of Brantford builders called the Haldimand Tract Good Neighbours Coalition to sell out Canadian justice by urging municipalities to turn over taxpayers’ monies to the Haudenosaunee Development Institute (HDI), an organization that has shut down development sites in Hagersville, Cayuga and Brantford with intimidation and illegal occupations.

OPP tell CANACE: Land Title deeds do NOT prove ownership

13 07 2008
UPDATED Jan 14/10: see new section, ‘Signs of Progress’

On May 12/08 a Cayuga builder authorized CANACE to gather evidence to support criminal charges against natives who had shut down their townhouse development. CANACE co-founder Jeff Parkinson was filming as Executive Director Gary McHale asked the OPP site commander Sergeant Michaud for an explanation as to why he and his officers were refusing to enforce the law – and received a shocking admission: 

Sgt. Michaud explains that Ontario's Land Title deeds are NOT sufficient proof of ownership for the OPP. May 12/08

Video 1: shows, A: the Sergeant explaining that land title deeds are not sufficient to prove land ownership to the OPP’s satisfaction and B: that the OPP is being directed by the Crown Attorney not to enforce the law. 

This conversation took place just 5 days after CANACE released its ‘Legalized MYTHS of Illegal Occupations‘ report in which we exposed the complete lack of legal justification for allowing native protesters to victimize property owners.
