There was a bit of mud-slinging at the local Candidates' debate in Brant county, as would be expected.
Meanwhile, a 15-year old was arrested in the beating of home builder Sam Gualtieri, and police are still looking for two 18-year olds.
At the same Stirling South site, Dave Van Elslander, of Venture Homes said Thursday night he and John Kragten "have been advised the deal - hailed by the Haudenosaunee Development Institute (HDI) as a way for projects in disputed territory to carry on - meant handing jurisdiction over the land to HDI."
So they (wisely) refused to sign, and the fragile peace is now in jeopardy again:
Van Elslander said when the tentative deal was struck, he and Kragten were told they would not be required to pay a development fee but could make a donation to a worthy Six Nations cause, such as literacy.
They agreed, but when the deal to allow the subdivision to go ahead was drawn up, he and Kragten decided to find out what the use of the term jurisdiction meant.
"Basically we've been advised it meant everything was over, that's it and they own it," said Van Elslander.
In his statement, MacNaughton made it clear the HDI expects Ontario municipalities to fully consult with the Haudenosaunee of Six Nations before issuing permits for any developments in "unceded territory."
