The Free Thinking Film Society and the International Free Press Society are proud to present an evening on Caledonia.
This four-part presentation by Gary McHale and Mark Vandermaas (pictured above) – two longtime Caledonia ‘rule of law’ activists who provided a significant portion of the evidence and background for Christie Blatchford’s shocking book Helpless: Caledonia’s Nightmare of Fear and Anarchy, and How the Law Failed All… of Us begins with an introduction to the crisis from the victims’ perspective, and then picks up where Helpless leaves off by examining the national issues at stake; the racial corruption of the justice system by police and government; and concludes with concrete recommendations for moving forward.
Part 1: Caledonia’s Victims
Part 2: Caledonia Policy Issues
Part 3: The Smoking Gun of OPP Corruption
Part 4: The ‘Caledonia Act’: No More Nightmares
Gary McHale and Mark Vandermaas – with help from Caledonia residents – tell even more of the untold story of Caledonia based on the ‘smoking gun’ evidence behind racially-based policing policies enacted by the Ontario Provincial Police and Ontario government to appease native radicals while allowing innocent residents to be terrorized, intimidated and traumatized:
* How the Ontario government subverted the Charter of Rights and its own Police Services Act by conducting an illegal ‘peacekeeping’ mission on Canadian soil and misleading the public about its use of the Ipperwash Inquiry’s recommendations to justify its policy of refusing to protect non-natives.
* How the Ontario government and OPP repeatedly attacked the character and motivations of non-native rule of law activists, but remained completely silent about the critical role played by anarchists and anti-Israel groups in supporting native crime groups in Caledonia and Brantford for their own anti-capitalist objectives since May 2006.
* How aboriginals, too, have been untended victims of policing policies that allow illegal occupation sites to become lawless ‘home-free zones’ for rape, assault, arson, drug use and gun violence.
* How the Ontario government interfered with Caledonia policing, and used the OPP to target non-native activists.
* How the Attorney General stopped a terrorism charge from proceeding against a native blockade ringleader.
* How OPP officers, including senior brass, intervened with reference letters in order to attempt to obtain reduced sentences for native protesters and/or ensure charges against them – including several for assaulting police officers – were not laid at all.
* How the former OPP Commissioner met and joked with native protesters at a meeting on Six Nations called to seek his help in eliminating criminal charges, but refused the Haldimand mayor’s request to meet with Caledonia’s most aggrieved non-native victims.
* How native radicals use vexatious land claims to create instant government payouts for themselves while opening the door to legalized lawlessness.
* How OPP officers, while secretly under the direction of native ringleaders, broke Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) protocols during a Dec 01/07 protest by residents at an illegal smokeshack — which was selling cigarettes to the town’s children – during which non-natives and police officers were repeatedly assaulted and some sent to hospital – including one who suffered a permanent brain injury.
McHale and Vandermaas will conclude with a discussion of their proposed ‘Caledonia Act’ – a list of specific legislative and policy recommendations based on their combined eight years experience working as full time volunteers to confront race-based policing in and outside the courts.
In today’s ‘post-Helpless’ search for answers to the question, Where do we go from here?’ McHale and Vandermaas set out a realistic healing process for Caledonia and Six Nations that is founded, not on the demands and appeasement of radicals, but on time-tested concepts of truth, justice, equality, and respect for all human beings irrespective of race, religion or grievance.
Early arrivals will be treated to a pre-presentation ‘bonus’ screening of a compilation video composed of footage recorded during the Caledonia crisis which will begin showing at 6:30 pm. (The video will be available on YouTube after the event.)
All guests will receive a copy of the presenters’ ‘Caledonia Act’ recommendations as well as a DVD containing just a small fraction of the evidence at their disposal – 600+ files consisting of documents, photos, and videos as submitted to Ontario’s Superior Court of Justice by Mr. McHale in his defence against a $7.1M SLAPP suit (Strategic Lawsuits Against Public Participation) filed by the Ontario Provincial Police Association in 2007 against him after he claimed police officers were not upholding their oaths of office in Caledonia.
Signed copies of Christie Blatchford’s Helpless will be available for sale.
This event should not be missed by any Canadian politician or policy researcher who cares about one of the most important issues facing Canada today – the preservation of our country’s rule of law in the face of extremist factions seeking to destroy cherished Canadian values for their own selfish ends.
Admission $20.00 (students/seniors $10.00)
