“Truth and Reconciliation”

Caledonia/Six Nations, February 27th, 2011

Gary McHale organizes a “Truth and Reconciliation” rally in Caledonia, demanding that the OPP, the government, and Six Nations people apologize to the “victims” of Caledonia.  They attempt to erect an “apology” monument at kanonhstaton (the reclamation site).

McHale has approximately 20 supporters.

At the same time, in the same place, another Truth and Reconciliation rally is organized by the Six Nations Solidarity Network, demanding that the history of colonialism and land appropriation be recognized, and that Six Nations rights to the land be respected.

About 200 people attended this rally.

Mark Vandermaas & supporters vow to return each month to erect to the apology monument.

Many Caledonians insist that Gary McHale and Mark Vandermaas do not speak for them.
