Just here for the show

So, residents of the Caledonian quagmire have to be the ones to do this job, traditionally understood by my people as a contractual obligation of the police:

The plan calls for residents to “repel the aggression by creation of a large presence and advance together as one unit peacefully, if possible, until the offending persons remove themselves from the property and back into their own area.”
Prediction: The OPP Christian Peacemaker Teams continue to observe.

Good plan, IF you have a large presence to repel.
"... peacefully, if possible, until the offending persons remove themselves to THEIR OWN AREA."
Oh heavens no, they're not calling for vigilantes.
And dear heaven no, "their own area" is not under dispute.
Only in Canada you say? Pity.

One question that I haven't seen answered is 'how much federal and provincial money does this band receive?'.

They seem to be above any laws of the land, and don't recognize the OPP or the courts as having any jurisdiction over them. If this is their position then they should not be accepting any money from either level of gov't. Fair's fair...

Steve Janke at 'Angry in the Great White North' is all over their gambling businesses, so I say
let 'em have the disputed property and their gambling lucre and cut them off from any gov't funding.
