Breaking News: McGuinty trying to pull a fast one?

Caledonia Wake-up Call claims to have heard from an "inside source" that McGuinty is trying to buy off the natives:

Ontario Government has now handed down an offer to Six Nations worded as $50 Million for Policing Services on Six Nations for a year and in return they will vacate DCE.

This is nothing but a smoke screen money grab give away. The Six Nations does not need $50 Million to police; it may take $1-2 million. In other words reading between the lines, McGuinty is spinning it as a Law and Order issue and trying to bolster the policing when it will not happen. The money will be disbursed to the Six Nations through the police."

If true, it should be interesting to see how McGuinty spins this one as election time approaches.

Update: News from Hagerdoniawash.

Dust My Broom - OPP: Meat in the Sandwich.

Agreement reached in Hagersville - Spectator. Could someone please explain to me how developers are allowed to continue to start construction on land under dispute? Or do the natives make a retroactive claim? I would love to hear from anyone involved with this issue.

Thursday Update: Native Occupation Fuels Fears. This could be a very volatile summer right across the country.

The Six Nations were given six miles on either side of the Grand. Hagersville is not within that area. The Plank Road land claim has been shown to be invalid because the government has the documentation proving that the land was bought and paid for. Thus the land is is not in dispute except that the protesters and teir supporters claim all the land in the US and Canada.

L.S. - I'll take that as a sarcastic comment about McGuinty and thank you for that.

Joanne - LS has a good point. Shouldn't it be considered business as usual for the good premier?

Joanne (True Blue) said...

Brian, exactly. ;)

Here's an update on the Hagersville situation. I wonder if McGuinty is going to buy out all of Southern Ontario?
