Natives Protest Ontario Casino Site
As reported by the Canadian Press: "Aboriginal protesters took their fight on the road Wednesday, setting up an information picket at the Brantford Casino, claiming the site as theirs. "Federal and provincial representatives met with Six Nations delegates Wednesday to talk about land claims. "Native protesters said they wanted to show Canadians their fight is for more than a housing development they are occupying in nearby Caledonia. ".The casino property, which backs onto the Grand River, is on land that wasn't sold or given to Canada by Six Nations people, [spokeswoman Janie] Jamieson said. "'This is unceded, unsold Six Nations territory. Look at the prosperity this brings and not a penny comes back to Six Nations,' she said. 'The bottom line is Canada is prospering big time and it's on stolen land.'."
