Mayor urges organizer to cancel second Caledonia march
By Daniel Nolan
The Hamilton Spectator
CALEDONIA (Dec 14, 2006)
Haldimand County Mayor Marie Trainer is pleading with a Richmond Hill man to
cancel another planned flag-waving march in town this Saturday near the site
of the native land dispute.
Meanwhile, negotiations are set to resume today among Ottawa, Ontario and
the Six Nations Confederacy to try to resolve the 10-month occupation of the
onetime housing project Douglas Creek Estates.
Talks have not been held since Nov. 14 after positions were staked out, with
Ottawa saying Six Nations surrendered the Argyle Street South site in the
1840s and Six Nations saying they were duped.
Trainer is pleading with Gary McHale, who organized a contentious rally in
Caledonia in October, to forgo the new march because it could lead to trouble.
A similar march held Dec. 2, ostensibly to salute Canada's military, was
attended by about 30 people. OPP stopped the group from flying flags near
Douglas Creek Estates and arrested one man.
"I haven't heard anyone who is for it," Trainer said. "Caledonia people
don't really want him in their business. They'd like him to stay home."
The march is proposed to begin at 11:30 a.m. from the Canadian Tire parking
lot. Participants will try to plant flags across the street from Douglas
Creek Estates. Trainer said the OPP are prepared.
"They're hoping nobody shows up, but they'll play everything by ear."
McHale, who runs a website on the Caledonia standoff, dismissed Trainer's
comments and said he's not advocating trouble. He said he wants to demonstrate
his belief natives are being treated differently from non-natives by the OPP
and new commissioner Julian Fantino.
"It's not illegal to put up a Canadian flag," McHale said, noting natives
have put up flags on Douglas Creek Estates. "No laws are being broken."
In other developments:
* The Ontario Court of Appeal is expected to release its ruling today on
Justice David Marshall's order in August to halt negotiations. The province
bought the site and partly argues that this action changed his order. The appeal
court heard arguments in September.
* In the Ontario legislature yesterday, Premier Dalton McGuinty and
Conservative Leader John Tory sparred again on the standoff. Tory accused the
government of breaking a promise to have protesters off the site by the start of
winter, but McGuinty said his government has worked hard to ease tensions and
said Tory and his party "are eager to pour gasoline on the situation."
* A man accused of assaulting two members of a CH-TV news crew will remain
in custody until his next court date in January. Trevor Miller, 31, has been
in jail since August.

County wants forward movement on development

BY KAREN BEST
Local News - Wednesday, December 13, 2006 Updated @ 10:38:28 AM

Haldimand County Mayor Marie Trainer will break the rules at a Dec. 16
meeting with Haldimand Norfolk MP Diane Finley, Haldimand Norfolk Brant MPP Toby
Barrett and Norfolk County Mayor Dennis Travale.

The two mayors are to talk about common concerns and are to avoid Caledonia
and tobacco, Trainer said to council this week. She will bring up
compensation for property tax losses because development stopped on 600 homes in
Caledonia's Douglas Creek Estates, currently occupied by Six Nations members.

She will also put Highway 6 improvements, a second Caledonia bridge, and a
north Caledonia sewage plant on the table.

The federal level has to be prompted to move ahead to ensure development in
the county, said Coun. Buck Sloat.

"It's absolutely ridiculous to think that Six Nations are being allowed to
bring the entire Grand River watershed to a halt," he said.

On Dec. 12, Travale met with Trainer to introduce himself. He was aware of
former mayor Lorraine Bergstrand's position that Norfolk County is subsidized
by Haldimand but would not comment on that.

Travale said his ambition is that he and Trainer will work together
harmoniously. Both counties have a lot in common, he said.

An earlier meeting between Finley, Coun. Craig Grice, Boyko and Trainer was
less than satisfactory. Grice said negotiations are stalled because of
internal Six Nations governance issues.

He said he came out of the meeting one-and-a-half hours older but not much
more informed. It was a disappointing meeting, he said.

Boyko said Finley could not respond to many questions because she is not at
the Canada, Ontario and Six Nations negotiating table.
