Media coverage

McHale, who is also the executive director of the Canadian Advocates for Charter Equality, called on the provincial government, the Ontario Provincial Police and the Six Nations group in the community southwest of Toronto to apologize for the wrongs incurred during the years-long land occupation. […]

Longtime resident Merlyn Kinrade, who was at the news conference, said community relations have yet to move on to the “healing” stage. “It’s still a strained relationship,” he said. “I think members of each community tolerate and hopefully encourage one another that we must get along.”

Mark Vandermaas, with the Caledonia Victims Project, said it was equally important that the Six Nations group acknowledge how the dispute has left lingering effects on the community of Caledonia. “If you drive down the street in Caledonia today, you are probably not going to see anything burning, but that doesn’t mean there’s justice in Caledonia,” he said.
