In an earlier post I wrote about Gary McHale being awarded Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. I also added to the post the sage of the “well-wishers”, who did everything in their power to ruin his chances of getting the award. That’s nothing new to Gary and he is used to fight such scumbags.
In the video above you will see the ceremony during which he receives the medal from the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. After that I am showing you a short documentary, which shows the trials and tribulations, through which Gary had to go to earn the medal.
In the post about Gary McHale’s medal, which I published the other day, I wrote about the e-mail blackmail saga. At the time I didn’t have all documents and only today I was able to get Gary’s letter to the Governor General, in which he defends his honour from the lies of the slanderer.
You can read it below, but first I want to point out a sentence in its last paragraph:
What Ms. Kidd has done is provide for you just one example of how, throughout history, those who stand for individual rights and freedoms will always be defamed.
Gary is right, this is just one example. The damage such individuals cause is not committed only by obscure personalities like the lady from Hamilton, but also by people who brand themselves as morally superior.
Case in point – Naomi Klein.
The member of the NDP royalty and tireless fighter against global capitalism (although capitalism made her rich) didn’t miss the opportunity to lecture us on the native issues. On Christmas Eve last year I was reading The Globe and Mail, where I found an article by Wise Naomi about Theresa Spence: “As Chief Spence starves, Canadians awaken from idleness and remember their roots” (I highly recommend that you read the whole article, it’s a superb piece of entertainment).
In the beginning Naomi tells us how her 6-month old son woke her up with his cries. He had cold and felt uncomfortable. After he went back to sleep, snoring again, she forgot about him and her thoughts started to drift off to Theresa’s teepee:
A single thought entered my head: Chief Theresa Spence is hungry. Actually it wasn’t a thought. It was a feeling. The feeling of hunger. Lying in my dark room, I pictured the chief of the Attawapiskat First Nation lying on a pile of blankets in her teepee across from Parliament Hill, entering day 14 of her hunger strike.
What an Oprah-worthy picture! The Lefty Drama Queen meets the Indian Drama Queen! I am not sure if Naomi is that stupid, but even at that time it was clear to everyone who was not afraid to use his or her brain that Theresa was not starving. Greedy people don’t starve themselves to death.
Within days we learned about the magnitude of her money mismanagement. We also found out that she was eating (or rather drinking rich foods) all the time and she spent her nights at a hotel and not trembling on or under a pile of blankets. Theresa was probably the only person in the world to gain weight from a hunger strike.
Things get out of control when Naomi juxtaposes Stephen Harper with Theresa Spence:
…Mr. Harper may relent, scared of the political fallout from letting this great leader die. I dearly hope he does. I want Chief Spence to eat. But I won’t soon forget this clash between these two very different kinds of resolve, one so sealed off, closed in; the other cracked wide open, a conduit for the pain of the world.
Calling a corrupt village mayor a “great leader” is way over the top. The “sealed off, closed in” Harper (is this the “hidden agenda” tripe all over again?) is morally inferior to the “cracked wide open” Theresa. I am sure she is “cracked wide open” to her $850-a-day boyfriend. And she is a great “conduit” for the money that comes from the taxpayers’ pockets and goes into her gang’s mysterious properties and businesses, bypassing in the process her poor reserve subjects, who are the people who actually sleep under piles of blankets in their cold shacks. (Don’t forget that one of the reasons she ended her fake hunger strike was the threat from her band council to kick her out.)
Naomi’s ramblings are painfully familiar – they fit very well in the communist propaganda. Years ago at my university we had quite a few North Korean students. They carried with them tons of propaganda literature – the Collected Works of Kim Il Sung and countless booklets in several languages. I remember a story in one of those booklets about a mother, whose child got sick, but she studied vigorously the “juche” ideas (Kim Il Sung’s brand of Marxism) and through her faith and will power he helped her child to recover.
Naomi Klein’s stupidity looks like something that came directly from a North Korean book, including the “great leader” terminology.
It is a sad state of the affairs when deluded idiots like Grand Naomi and Big Mama Spence can deceive millions of people through the media, while a person like Gary McHale, who wants everybody to think for himself or herself has to struggle to be heard.
Anyway, here is what Gary had to say to the Governor General Johnston:
Right Honourable David Johnston
Governor General of Canada
Rideau Hall, 1 Sussex Drive
Ottawa Ontario K1A 0A1 firstname.lastname@example.org
Re: Defamation Email sent to your Office
Dear Mr. Johnston:
Throughout the past 1000 years of British history there have always been those who struggled to establish the rights and freedoms of every individual citizen, while others repeatedly attempted to establish special rights and privileges for the few. Canadians can be proud of how Britain has passed down this legacy whereby all citizens have equal benefit of the law.
Recently you authorized that I would receive the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal – an honour bestowed on me because of the hard work of so many to ensure the rights and freedoms of all citizens. At all times our group has supported the rights of all citizens to do peaceful protests and to exercise their free speech.
Like so many times in history there will always be those who attack people who have fought to ensure individual freedoms. Recently, you received an email from Connie Kidd of Hamilton as an example of those who attempt to repress the rights of others. While we respect Ms. Kidd’s right to contact your office we cannot accept that she has a right to outright lie to you in order to defame me or our group.
While I will not respond to all the lies contained in her email I would address two issues. First, she directly states that I was “convicted of Grand Larceny in the U.S.”. While she provides you with no proof, I can state that I have never been arrested nor charged with any crime in the United States let alone been convicted of any crime there. Second, Ms. Kidd expresses the idea that somehow she has direct knowledge of my filed tax returns with the Federal Government, thereby claiming with some authority to know my financial affairs including the claim that the Canadian Taxpayers Federation gives me money. Like everything else in Ms. Kidd’s email she simply creates these defamatory statements out of thin air. It is clear to anyone reading Ms. Kidd’s email that she is driven more by her hatred and anger than by facts and as such fiction replaces reality.
What Ms. Kidd has done is provide for you just one example of how, throughout history, those who stand for individual rights and freedoms will always be defamed. As Christ himself stated, “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you…”
And here is the complete document:

Yesterday in Toronto Gary McHale received Her Majesty’s Diamond Jubilee Medal. He was nominated by the Canadian Taxpayers Federation for his work of exposing the provincial government’s tax waste in the Caledonia area. At the ceremony he received his medal from Gregory Thomas, Federal and Ottawa Director of the CTP.
I am sure that for the 60,000 ordinary and extraordinary Canadians, who received the medal, that was just another pleasant life episode with smiling officials, clapping family members and boring parties.
Not so with Gary – nothing about him is ordinary. The nomination touched off a storm of wailing and gnashing of teeth, which could be heard “from the Island to Vancouver to the Isle of Newfoundland” (as once Stompin’ Tom put it). There is nothing new about the reaction – Gary’s life resembles a detective novel continuously published in a magazine, where you anxiously wait for every new issue to see what would happen in the next chapter.
In that type of novel the protagonists, like let’s say Philip Marlowe, fight dark and disturbed villains, with whom many women may fall in love, while Gary McHale has to deal with characters, who look like they sprung out of the clinical records of an institution for the criminally insane. Below you will meet some of them, involved in the medal “controversy” – a nutty student activist, who writes music pieces against patriarchy; a pissed off Indian chief, and a classic case of a backstabbing liar and mudslinger.
For years Gary and his supporters tried to expose those characters and the harm they caused, yet the mainstream media ignored them. It took the “Idle No More” movement to pull those people from the bowels of society into the light of day. And the picture ain’t pretty… In my video you can see some curious specimens during their confrontation with the SUN News personality Ezra Levant.
Initially, the ceremony was scheduled for February 18, but the long advance notice allowed the native entitlement industry and their faithful lefty sidekicks to put in motion their well-oiled machine of threats and intimidation. There is nothing new here – the people in Caledonia and Brantford, who refused to take meekly the native terror, know the drill very well.
Threatening phone calls and letters did the job to scare institutions and venues. Although they knew that Gary and CTP were right, none of them wanted to face a crowd of raging psychopaths, from whom the police would provide no protection.
It is important to point that out, because the “Idle No More” movement’s leaders threaten to bring Canada’s economy to its knees. If we the taxpayers don’t keep handing out money to those freeloaders without any questions asked, Gary McHale’s horrible experience in the small Ontario town would very likely turn into a grim future for all Canadians.
Let’s start with the student activist, who hates Gary, and see what she wrote. (Many thanks to Richard and Blazingcatfur, who bravely dived into the Rabble-dot-ca sewer to bring out this little “gem.”)
The article“Honouring anti-Native protester Gary McHale”
was written by Nora Loreto, a “writer, musician and activist” who mentions in her biography the position of former Ryerson Free Press Editor-in-Chief. That rag operates in a Toronto university from which wannabe-chief Pam pulls the strings of “Idle No More”. Nora also has a link to a site with her uploaded music, mostly piano recordings.
It sounds like a work by a graduate from Yoko Ono’s school for musical half-wits. One of Nora’s masterpieces is titled “Frustration of Patriarchy”, which I highly recommend, if you can endure more than a minute of it. The style is suspiciously similar to that of another famous Nora – the YouTube sensation Nora the Piano Cat.
I am torn between both, but I may go with Nora the Cat. First of all, she is more popular with 24 million views of her art, and second, she is dedicated to her music, while Nora the Human mixes it with silly lefty activism, which Nora the Cat, to the best of my knowledge, stays away from.
Anyway, the article is not very original and recycles the same old unsubstantiated garbage:
“Yes, McHale has made a significant contribution to racial relations in Caledonia. He’s made being racist nearly okay. He’s battled “political correctness” (as he says) and tried to restore the White man’s proper place in Canada: wherever he wants it to be.”
Never mind that Gary spent years fighting the racism displayed in Caledonia by OPP and natives. On the piece of land illegally occupied by the Indians, no Jews, Japanese, Blacks, Filipinos or whites are allowed. Anyone other than an Indian, who puts a foot on it, will be arrested by the police. Of course, truth is always a minor nuisance in the lefty world.
Nora the Human comes swinging in full force when talking about the Canadian Taxpayers Federation:
“He was nominated by the prestigious Canadian Taxpayers’ “Federation,” a right-wing organization that claims to speak on behalf of, well, me, despite not clearly advertising the mechanisms for me to vote out the current lot of republicans, libertarians and racist sympathizers.
Their claim is that he exposed that the OPP was spending more than a hundred million dollars policing the events that surrounded reclamation of the Douglas Creek Estates at Caledonia. No word if money was actually saved, of course. No mention of how much the OPP had to pay every time McHale himself organized a rally of obnoxious, anti-Native protesters.”
I wasn’t aware that in Canada we can vote for or against republicans. Gary’s work helped to limit the impact of the Indian economic terror in the region, although he couldn’t do too much without government support. The “reclamation” and other atrocities cost the taxpayers billions of dollars. One of the active supporters of the Indian economic sabotage, Tom Keefer, a union activist and a York University eternal student, proudly stated in one of his papers:
“Since the February 2006 land reclamation near Caledonia, the political resurgence at Six Nations has led the Haudenosaunee Confederacy to create new institutions operating outside of the control of the Canadian state. Backed by direct action, these institutions are making demands on capitalists seeking to develop indigenous lands.
According to some sources, Six Nations direct actions have caused over $1.7 billion in economic damage to the local economy since the 2006 reclamation began. In addition to the disruption of the King and Benton site, Six Nations has shut down a $125-millionHydro One expansion in Caledonia, the development of 4,000 homes in Caledonia valued at $880 million, the development of 85 townhouses in Hagersville valued at $20 million, a $275-million wind-farm, a Wal-Mart development in Dunnville, and a total of $590 million worth of other developments in Brantford.”
This was a massive economic damage, which cost thousands of jobs and millions of lost tax revenue. The money lost could’ve benefited the militant freeloaders from the reserves and the urban welfare revolutionaries. Only a complete idiot may feel proud of such record. Of course, Nora the Human, as a specimen of that parasitic class, doesn’t care where her free money comes from.
Even the Queen can’t get away from her psychotic indignation:
“Yes, it’s fitting that the day after the Idle No More global day of action, a man who is only famous for his anti-Native protests, is awarded an honour of the Queen. Indeed, she holds a position that is the most anti-Native of all.
The centuries of genocide that have happened in Canada were enabled by the colonial project of England (and France, Spain, Holland, Portugal…) and the Queen wears the blood of the murder carried out as a result of her Empire. Of course McHale’s award makes sense.”
Poor Queen Lizzy – she is in cahoots with Gary the Villain. The revolutionary freeloaders, who demonstrate for more free money, see nothing but blood on her genocidal white gloves.
The trump card in Nora’s presentation is Bill Montour, a chief at the Six Nations reserve. He got so pissed off with Gary’s medal that he returned his own. The Montour response was picked by Hamilton Spectator, which gave him the opportunity to express his point.
Six Nations Chief Bill Montour is returning his Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal to Governor General David Johnston after one was awarded to controversial Caledonia figure Gary McHale.
“I’m packing it up as we speak,” Montour said Tuesday. “I’m sending mine back because I don’t want to have a medal, carrying the same medal (as McHale) … This is recognition of what you have done to this point in your life, and I was quite happy and pleased to take it. After this has come about, I don’t want it.”
Boy, isn’t that an angry chief? Bill’s case shows once again that the natives can get away with anything. Imagine if Gary refused the medal, because Bill received it – he would be condemned as a racist by almost all media outlets.
And Bill definitely has some questions to answer to. He was nominated by that spineless idiot Dalton McGuinty, the former Ontario Premier, who allowed the natives to mistreat the people from Brantford and Caledonia. Most people, who committed the massive economic sabotage and caused the enormous financial losses Tom Keefer talked about, came from the tribe, which the chief rules.
Yet, to the best of my knowledge, he has never expressed any regret about the pain and suffering his people caused. On the contrary, he went head on against Gary McHale, the man who wanted to expose the native extremists and clear the image of the ordinary peaceful natives, who live on the Six Nations reserve, and attacked not only him but the Governor General as well:
Montour called it “ludicrous” to give McHale a medal. He said residents of Six Nations are “wondering if the Governor General has lost his mind.” Amanda Dale, an Idle No More activist, said people she knows in the movement either laughed or broke down crying at the news.
The horrible news has turned the Six Nations reserve into a set of South American soap opera, where everybody is suffering.
So how could McGuinty nominate for a high award a questionable “leader” who de facto supports lawlessness, and throw all of his police and court might against Gary McHale, a loyal subject of the Queen, who wants nothing more and nothing less than equal treatment for everybody in the great tradition started by Magna Carta. Don’t ask too much – in Ontario, ruled by McGuinty and now by his weird heir (sic) Wynne, insanity is a norm.
However, the heavy artillery in the battle of the crazy native-leftist alliance against Gary McHale came from a woman, who started a well-documented smear campaign. She sent messages to the Governor General and the Canadian Taxpayers Federation to discourage them from awarding him the medal. Since the most common accusation when discussing such letters is “you quoted me out of context”, here is the entire message, as provided by Mr. McHale:
It is a most unfortunate error to grant the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal to anti-native agitator Gary McHale. Mr. McHale has not “made a significant contribution” and certainly does not “bring credit to Canada;”. He is particularly opposed to honouring the Queen’s treaties with Indigenous Peoples of Canada, treaties the Queen personally chose to renew with the Six Nations people of Grand River in 2010.
Prior to his provocative agitation in Caledonia, Mr. McHale was convicted of Grand Larceny in the U.S. He has never denied this. In Canada, he has no identifiable sources of income except donations to his political agitation activities, notably from the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation that nominated him.
His activities are racist in nature:
” McHale, Vandermaas, and these other figures appropriate the language of the civil rights movement and Martin Luther King Jr. in particular, and they claim to be anti-racist, going so far as to hold an “Anti-racism” Rally in Caledonia on the International Day for the Elimination of Racism on March 21 2010. Notably, the only other groups organizing events for that day based on the claim that white people are racially disadvantaged were neo-nazis in Vancouver, Calgary and Montreal.
With respect to the presence of neo-nazis at his events, he has stated that they “have a right to be there. I can’t stop them.” “
While Mr. McHale protests the money spent on policing in Caledonia …
“ “Over $120 million of taxpayers’ money has been wasted in Caledonia on the failed policing policies of the OPP,” CANACE said … “
… he neglects to mention that a substantial amount of those costs were incurred due to his anti-native agitation activities in that community.
Finally, and most importantly, the association of the Queen’s name with Mr. McHale is most regretable: He is particularly disrespectful of the Queen’s treaties with Indigenous Peoples of Canada, treaties that the Queen recently made a “personal decision” to renew with the Six Nations people of Grand River, the very people that McHale harasses and whose rights and treaties he denies.
The Queen among the Mohawks:
The Silver Chain of Friendship 1710-2010
“ ‘English connection’, … a reminder of the living presence of history. This was poignantly apparent in
Queen Elizabeth’s personal decision
(according to Kevin S. MacLeod, Canadian Secretary to the Queen) to present two peals of hand bells to the Chapels Royal of the Mohawks.
In so doing, as the Archbishop of Toronto Colin Johnson and the day’s homilist Cathedral Rector Douglas Stoute reminded the 700 sweltering bodies inside the Cathedral and the thousands lining King and Church Streets outdoors, the Queen honoured a relationship that pre-dates the existence of Canada by more than 150 years.
In 1710, a Six Nations delegation visited the court of Queen Anne asking for her support. The first Mohawk Chapel was built in 1712 in the Mohawk Valley. Following the American Revolution and the defeat of British forces, loyalist Six Nations people were awarded a sizeable land grant in the Haldimand Treaty of 1784; and the first ‘Mohawk Chapel’ was erected by the Crown in 1785. The relationship between Crown and some Iroquois was enhanced by the continued loyalty of Grand River people during The War of 1812. The present day Mohawk Chapel, renovated in 1983 in Six Nations territory on the Grand River, is the only Royal Chapel in North America. It was so designated in 1904 by Edward VII.
As a historian, one is struck by Elizabeth’s choice of July 4 as a date to commemorate the 300-year relationship between the British Crown and the Mohawk Nation. Further, given the contentious, sometimes even bloody, relationship between the Canadian state and the Six Nations since Confederation, the import of the Queen’s decision to pay such homage was not lost on the Mohawks present, or on attentive observers of indigenous-settler relations in Canada. The silver bells that Queen Elizabeth presented on July 4 are engraved with the words The Silver Chain of Friendship 1710-2010; according to notes provided by the government of Canada, they “are symbolic of the councils and the treaties that originated between the English colonies in North America and the Iroquois Confederacy.” “
It’s an unfortunate travesty that McHale’s name has been announced for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal without proper research into his character and his views. His entire premise is that policing and all other aspects of Canada’s relations with Indigenous Peoples should not recognize any Aboriginal or Treaty rights.
Clearly, the Queen disagrees.
I understand that (elected) Chief William Montour of Six Nations of Grand River is returning his Queen’s Silver Jubilee medal. He is an honourable man. In my experience, McHale is not.
” Hennig said his group [the Canadian Taxpayers' Federation who nominated McHale] is “not concerned about those reactions. I would expect that they wouldn’t [be] please[d] with that.” “
Mr. Hennig should have warned you, Mr. Johnston. They have set up an embarrassing situation for you as the Queen’s representative. There will very likely be continued protests of Mr. McHale’s award. I have certainly marked ‘Feb. 18 – Toronto’ on my calendar.
Connie Kidd, Hamilton ON
It is hard to believe that Ms. Kidd thinks that with such a letter, written at Grade 5 level, she can sway the opinion of Her Majesty’s representative to Canada. But that’s how the supporters of the native extremists operate – they think that when they are loud enough when they accuse somebody, the fear of being labeled a racist would overpower logic.
I’ll leave aside the “larceny” charges (Gary addresses them in a response). The finance charges are also interesting – since when the source of income makes a person worthy or unworthy for an award? From that point of view many Indian and lefty activists, who are life-long welfare bums shouldn’t be reckoned with at all.
The blog post about the racist nature of Gary McHale’s activities, which she quotes, is based on lies written specifically to slander those who disagree with the illegal Indian occupation in Caledonia. Among the “incriminating” pictures supposed to show the far-right links of Gary we see a photo of the flag of Ontario. I might have missed the memo, but since when the Ontario flag is a neo-Nazi accessory? Maybe the Indians don’t like it and Kathleen Wynne may soon replace it with the homosexual flag, but for now we are still Ontarians (including the Six Nations reserve).
It is laughable that Ms. Kidd attacks the commemoration of the day for elimination of racism in 2010. Vandermaas and McHale addressed a very real issue – in the illegally occupied land the Indians practice blatant racism, letting in only their own race and their lefty white ass-kissers with the blessing of the police. Isn’t that something we all should fight? Moreover, both of them have been involved for years in battling anti-Semitism.
Their “Israel Truth Week” annual conference has made significant contributions in that field. Oh, I forgot – for the likes of Nora, Connie and the “Mohawk Warriors” only the Hamas and PLO terrorists count as moral authority and Israel is a nest of evil Zionist Jews.
The most laughable part of the letter is the one dealing with the treaties. It’s even the longest. Ms. Kidd’s premise is that the Queen respects the treaties with the natives. Notice how the Left can’t make up their mind. In Nora the Human’s article the Queen is a genocidal old witch, who formed a sinister union with Gary to destroy the poor natives.
But according to Ms. Kidd, Her Majesty is a sweet old lady, who loves the Mohawks. On her last visit to Toronto (pictures here)
she even donated a few trinkets to their church. Ms. Kidd goes into a lengthy discussion of the Six Nations history. They arrived in 1784, which makes them settlers – many of the white people the lefties despise, have arrived in Canada hundreds of years earlier. After reading all that, I was left scratching my head thinking: what does that history lecture have to do with Gary’s medal?
The facts that the Indians sold their land over the centuries, doesn’t give them the right to attack and mistreat their neighbours and try to get the land back by force ignoring the courts. Maybe that’s the normal way from the point of view of the Mohawk logic, but in Canada we have laws, which should be observed, regardless of what spineless pansies like Dalton McGuinty think. If the natives don’t recognize those laws, it’s reasonable to assume that the treaties should also go.
Of course, letting such a despicable liar get away with her deception is not an option in a civilized society. In a message sent a day before the award ceremony, Gary McHale delicately warned Connie Kidd:
Date: 2013-01-31 1:15 PM
Subject: Defamation lawsuit
It has come to my attention that you are defaming me in emails to the Taxpayers Federation and the Governor General of Canada. In particular you lie about me being convicted of an offence in the USA – I have never been charged with any offence in the USA. Furthermore, you make slanderous statement regarding my finance.
I am directing you to issue an apology and send it to me, the Taxpayers Federation and the Governor General. Failure to do so will immediately result in a lawsuit against you. Please ensure you have issued the apology before the end of Friday, Feb. 1, 2013. See my attached letter to the Governor General.
Well, as a comment to the message, I should mention that everybody who has known Gary McHale for a long period of time knows that he is a simple man – he says what he thinks and does what he says. And he won’t keep quiet when he or somebody else is mistreated. A long row of people, who have tried to defame, slander or destroy him in other creative ways, would testify (although reluctantly) that he has always prosecuted successfully such attacks. Just ask Julian Fantino, OPP, McGuinty’s people, the Six Nations “press”, etc.
The explanation of his court success is also simple – he has the truth on his side (and his profound knowledge of the law, which rivals that of many “real” lawyers doesn’t hurt either). I am not sure, if Ms. Kidd is aware of his record, but within hours she issued an apology:

Subject: Re: Defamation lawsuit by Gary McHale
Mr. McHale, Governor-General Johnston, Mr. Hennig:
As per Mr. McHale’s request, I hereby withdraw paragraph 2 of my Jan.30 submission of concerns regarding Mr. McHale’s proposed Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal. I apologize for my error in making those particular comments.
My recollection of public online conversations was that Mr. McHale never denied the U.S. charges, but as he points out, I cannot now provide supporting information, and I accept his statement.
Regarding his income, it appears that I misinterpreted as financial ‘support’ his statement that the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation
“has supported his campaign since 2007″
I trust this addresses Mr. McHale’s “defamation” concerns. It was inappropriate of me to include those items in my letter.
My intent was to focus on the remaining serious concerns that still apply. I harbour neither “hatred” nor “anger” toward Mr. McHale, though I do not consider him a worthy recipient of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal.
I would ask that the Governor-General consider the rest of my Jan. 30 submission without the offending paragraph, with my apologies for the inconvenience.
Connie Kidd, Hamilton ON
True, the apology is half-baked – she still insists on her points and doesn’t address her faulty logic, but, hey, there is no requirement that only smart people write to the Governor General. I still think that the motive for the larceny accusation withdrawal sounds funny – she thinks that if some people on the internet blame somebody for something, and the person doesn’t respond, he is presumed guilty. That is another example of Mohawk logic. What if I say that Theresa Spence had sex with Hugo Chavez – following Connie’s logic, if Theresa never reads my blog and never denies the charge explicitly, my statement should be assumed to be true. The same applies to Gary, who can’t police the world-wide web.
As I said in the beginning, Gary’s life is like a detective novel and the whole commotion surrounding his medal proves it.
Many people say that Gary is nuts to do what he is doing. He hasn’t won much from his activism (unlike many of the Indian chiefs). Besides, many think that now there is relative peace in Caledonia and he is rocking the boat unnecessarily. That is deceptive. The Six Nations or any other tribe still occupy illegally part of Caledonia and can strike again at any time, beating and kicking out people out of their homes. And I am sure that the all-inclusive lesbian Kathleen Wynne, just like her predecessor, would support them no matter what they do. After all, at the convention that elected her, she stated that Toronto is Mississauga Indian land (neglecting to mention the fact that the land has been ceded or sold centuries ago).
They are not afraid to make terrorist threats. Last month Nepinak, one of the big shots in “Idle No More” and a high-ranking Manitoba chief, bluntly threatened Canada (a Muslim or a white Christian would be arrested for such a statement):
“The Idle No More movement has the people, it has the people and the numbers that can bring the Canadian economy to its knees… We have the warriors that are standing up now that are willing to go that far. So we’re not here to make requests. We’re here to demand attention and to demand an end to 140 years of colonial rule.”
I am also for abolishing the colonial rule and its main relics – the Indian Act and the reserve system. I want everybody in Canada to be treated the same way. Of course, Nepinak doesn’t want the same. His statement is just a clumsy attempt to extort more taxpayers’ money while keeping his cushy chief’s job.
Very few taxpayers would agree with his demands, if asked. That’s why the Canadian Taxpayers Federation was right when it nominated Gary McHale. Nobody should waste our tax – neither the government, nor the Indian chiefs, nor their merry lefty sidekicks.

As an addition to my post about the recent injustice in Caledonia, here is a video, which shows what happened. The sad part was that innicent people were arrested again; the optimistic part is that nobody can stop those, who quietly work for bringing justice to that town, which has been terrorized for so many years:
It happened again – at today’s rally in Caledonia, organized to promote justice and equal treatment of all residents of the town, eight peaceful protesters were arrested by the Ontario Provincial Police. They didn’t do anything wrong, they were those who were harassed by two groups of thugs. Yet the police detained them replaying the situation which occurred at the Al-Quds rally in Toronto last week, where a Jewish man was attacked and his dog kicked by Muslim savages and he was arrested while his attackers remained free.
Among the 8 arrested in Caledonia earlier today was Stuart Laughton from the Hamilton-based Never Again Group, a predominantly Jewish organization which fights anti-Semitism and promotes tolerance. Stuart came with a few friends to support the rally and ended up in a police van..
Their presence at the rally didn’t fit the slanderous image of Gary McHale as a “white supremacist”, which the native militants and the lefty dimwits are trying so hard to sell (and some of them got burnt in the court because of that). Obviously, it is beyond obvious that Gary was arrested as well. The same happened to Ted, a guy who came for the first time to the protest.
Like in previous rallies, the goal was to walk down the county road, which crosses the government land now occupied by the militant natives. That area should be accessible by everybody, regardless of race. Previously, OPP grudgingly allowed McHale and his supporters to walk the road, despite the threats from the junkies who live in the only house remaining on that property. Today the junkies were joined by a gang of city lefties (most of them from Toronto) led by the union activist and “scholar” Tom Keefer. It was a sad sight, because most of them had the look of the occupy crowd – wearing filthy clothes and imagining that pushing around people brings an end to the world capitalism (you can see two samples of them in the top picture).
They immediately started to harass and threaten the protesters. The OPP took a cowardly course of action – instead of dealing with the potentially violent leftists, they decided to take away McHale and the others, who definitely wouldn’t resist. Dalton McGuinty, Ontario’s coward-in-chief, would’ve approved that.
I was chased by a fat girl in a dirty red dress, who followed me like a small tank whispering “Fucking racist!” and managed to push me. You’ll see this (and many other things) in the video when I finish compiling it.
Another very important point is that before the police allowed only people from one race – natives – to go to that publicly owned area. Today the police went even further – they allowed access to the land to the members of the Keefer gang, a group of extreme leftists. Regardless of what they say, the sad truth is that not only do the OPP maintain racial policing; they also give preferential treatment to militant lefties. Weren’t the police supposed to be politically neutral?
Who is Tom Keefer? He is an activist of CUPE, a union which represents the interests of a large number of useless and ignorant bureaucrats (although they may not agree with how the union uses their dues to support native militants). He is also a student at York University, a hotbed of Muslim fanaticism and leftist stupidity, which proudly hosted the anti-Semite George Galloway. From his twisted point of view, the native terrorism in Caledonia is an epic struggle against capitalism:
Since the February 2006 land reclamation near Caledonia, the political resurgence at Six Nations has led the Haudenosaunee Confederacy to create new institutions operating outside of the control of the Canadian state. Backed by direct action, these institutions are making demands on capitalists seeking to develop indigenous lands.
This is from his article “Declaring the Exception Direct Action, Six Nations, and the Struggle in Brantford”. Then he proudly states the economic damage caused by the militant Indians:
According to some sources, Six Nations direct actions have caused over $1.7 billion in economic damage to the local economy since the 2006 reclamation began. In addition to the disruption of the King and Benton site, Six Nations has shut down a $125-millionHydro One expansion in Caledonia, the development of 4,000homes in Caledonia valued at $880 million, the development of 85 townhouses in Hagersville valued at $20 million, a $275-million wind-farm, a Wal-Mart development in Dunnville, and a total of $590 million worth of other developments in Brantford.
It obviously doesn’t occur to him that if the damage continues, there will be no businesses left to cover the welfare cheques of the bums, whom he brings to Caledonia in union buses, and the native junkies, who occupy the land. Logical thinking is not a strong ability among Marxists.
This is the ideology of the thugs that OPP defend and protect.
Another thing the cops chose to ignore was the new signs placed by the native occupiers. As we know, the former real estate development is now government land, which doesn’t belong to the natives, but they put a “no trespassing” sign:
The Haudenosaunee (or Six Nations) have no authority to place that sign in the middle of a county road, which should be open to everybody. Obviously, in McGuinty’s Ontario the native thieves rule supreme. The same is the issue with the large sign at the property promoting the Six Nations tourism (if you don’t mind getting beaten and having your car stolen, that’s the place for you):
As it always happens after the arrests in Caledonia, the friends have to spent long hours at the police station waiting for the release of the arrested. That’s part of the punishment – the idea is that if they are hassled enough, the protesters may not show up the next time.
That is not going to work – no matter what the police or the Keefer idiots do, those people are not going to change. Since 2006 they have achieved so much in bringing awareness of the lawlessness in Caledonia, all that with extreme patience and totally peaceful protests. You can bet that they’ll continue until every piece of public land in Caledonia is accessible to everybody, regardless of race or political convictions.

It was another crazy day in Caledonia. If you remember, last December OPP wrongfully arrested eight peaceful protestors on one of the town’s public roads. After their acquittal, Gary McHale, one of the organizers of the protests against the illegal native occupation in Caledonia, announced another protest planned for February 18.
Originally, the event was scheduled for 2 p.m., but Gary decided to move it to 11:30 a.m. The reason was to make the protest really peaceful – every time before, when the Caledonia people showed up to demand equal justice for all, they were faced by a large number of aggressive natives, their lefty sidekicks and an indifferent police force.
This time Gary called 911 to notify the police that the time was changed. Shortly after that, the protestors gathered in front of the Lion’s Hall before heading to the disputed area.
When we arrived, the place was empty, as you can see in the picture (at the far left are the only two reporters, who showed up to cover the event).
Mark Vandermaas, a veteran peacekeeper, showed up wearing his blue beret and carrying the UN flag.
As more people arrived, they walked in following the road (which was established in court to be a county property). The few policemen, who just arrived, had no other choice but to follow them.
The group stopped at the fire hydrant – that was remarkable, because no people other than the occupiers have been able to go that far in the disputed land. The police were still watching and no natives were at the scene (apparently, they were still sleeping).
Meanwhile, we saw more and more police cars arriving with officers quickly heading toward the protestors.
By that time, the first few natives came out of the house. That house is the only structure remaining from the original real estate development. It now houses an unknown number of natives with all hydro and other expenses paid by the Ontario taxpayers (courtesy of Dalton McGuinty).
McGuinty’s “tenants” were a strange bunch – they looked like a group of addicts furious to be disturbed. The protestors were treated to a strange Indian dance. The short native woman in jeans will play an important role later:
Emboldened by the police presence, the natives started to display their usual behaviour – shouting insults and trying to assault the people. The police used the increasing tension to try to end the event. The officers pressured the participants to leave. It didn’t work – Gary and Mark told them that they were standing on county property and are not doing anything illegal and in fact they could walk even further. And so they did, reaching the area near the house:
At the same time, things turned ugly. After an altercation, the police had to detain the unruly native woman. That by itself was a miracle – before that no native person has ever been arrested in Caledonia for violent behaviour during the commission of a crime against non-natives, let alone on the occupation site.
Since she refused to walk, four officers had to carry her holding her arms and legs:
They put her on her legs when they came closer to the police van. As you can see, they seized from her a piece of pipe with sharp edges (I don’t know what she was going to use the lamp shade for):
As a side note I need to say that I have never heard a woman talk like her. She was hurling insults at the officers, some of the mildest of which were “motherfuckers”, “assholes”, “racists”, etc. I heard similar things from other natives, who arrived later. Apparently, the militant type of Indians has an amazing proficiency in the vulgar English slang.
Eventually, she was handcuffed and sent away in the van (still shouting):
Meanwhile things got even uglier at the rally. An aggressive native man tried to attack a police officer, another one attempted to assault Merlyn Kinrade, a 77-year old Canadian Navy veteran who served as a UN peacekeeper during the 1956 Suez Crisis. The police refused to deal with them, alleging they didn’t have enough officers (although the police outnumbered both the protestors and the natives put together).
While this was going on, more and more natives started arriving in cars from the fields. I had a nasty encounter with some of them telling me that they’ll break my legs, if I don’t leave their land. Since the police were busy with the big group, I had to leave the road to be safe (not that the police would’ve helped me, if they were around).
As it is usual in the weird world of the Caledonia conflict, the police made another strange decision. Instead of arresting the aggressive natives, they detained Gary McHale, who didn’t do anything to deserve that. That was Gary’s sixth unlawful arrest.
The natives brought even more people and blocked the entrance of the area with cars. Here is another woman making points, which are unprintable:
… and taken away in the police van:
At the time one of the major figures of the illegal occupations in the area – Ruby Montour – was already there. During the December rally she had a complete control over the police, telling them whom to arrest. This time she looked very disappointed:
At the entrance, Mark Vandermaas made a short speech about the conflict. He condemned the provincial government’s indifference to native violence, from which the native people suffer just as much as the residents of Caledonia and other towns.
Ironically, while Mark was speaking against violence, the natives made every effort to silence him – honking, shouting “liar”, “racist” and other unprintable words.
They even yelled at the police, because the officers “disappointed” them. One of the natives was overheard as saying that they should block the highway again.
So far, it was a good event – nobody was beaten up or injured by the natives.
After lunch we drove back to the occupied area to see who showed up at 2 p.m. It was already 3 o’clock and probably most people had already dispersed, but we still saw a few union activists with their flags. As I mentioned before, they are some of the major supporters of the native lawlessness:
There still was one issue to be resolved: where was Gary McHale?
We went to the police station where he was held – it was shortly before 4 p.m. and he still hadn’t been released.
A few minutes later, Gary emerged from the lower floor of the station. He showed up wearing only his underpants (I will spare you that picture) and my first thought was that he was strip-searched. However, when I talked to him later, he explained that he took his clothes off as a form of protest against the unlawful arrest. He did the same in December of 2006 , while under arrest in similar circumstances (with Mark Vandermaas in the next cell). Here is he just after being released:
We couldn’t leave immediately, because he needed another piece of vital information – the policemen who dealt with him, promised at his request to provide him with the name of the officer, who made the decision about his arrest. After waiting for nearly half an hour and knocking on several doors (the station looked deserted), somebody showed up and said that they can’t provide that information. So much about their credibility – I guess the case is heading to court as usual.
While we were waiting, a reporter from Dunnville’s Chronicle showed up at the police station. He was tipped off that a native woman was assaulted at the rally. As with all false accusations coming from the natives, Jeff Parkinson had the irrefutable evidence to debunk this one as well. Jeff is a videographer who meticulously films every protest event and his footage has helped many times to expose lies in court. The reporter was patient enough to go through Jeff’s video recording to find the truth. Then he interviewed Gary.
We took a picture at the entrance of the police station:
As a sign that the conflict continues, we saw outside two native girls. They took (not very discreetly) pictures of everybody and wrote down the licence plates of our cars. I guess we may expect a visit from Ruby’s henchmen…
On the way back I interviewed Mark Vandermaas about the meaning of those protests. His main concern is that the people in the area don’t understand the gravity of the situation. The lack of property rights protection means that everybody’s house or business could be seized, if the natives make a claim against the land (even if it’s false, like in the DCE case).
If the DCE is handed over to the Six Nations, that would mean an economic disaster for Caledonia. The natives will be able to open restaurants, stores and other businesses, operating tax-free. Although they’ll be required to sell only to Status Indians, they’ll sell to everybody (as they currently do on the reserve and in the illegal smoke shacks). That will drive out of business most of the entrepreneurs in the town. It will also mean lost tax revenue, because, judging from the government’s actions so far, they have never confronted a native “business”.
It looks like this will be another nail in the coffin of McGuinty’s jobless Ontario…

Over two months ago I attended a protest rally in Caledonia against the ongoing native occupation of a large piece of land. During the protest OPP arrested eight of the participants – Gary McHale, Doug Fleming, Merlyn Kinrade, Randy Fleming, Bonnie Stephens, Jack Van Halteren, Mark Vandermaas and Jeff Parkinson. They justified the arrests with the excuse that only “land claimants” were allowed on the disputed land (even though now it is owned by the provincial government). None of the officers seemed to notice that the protesters never reached the land; they were apprehended on the road, which is a country property.
Fast forward to the last week – after Caledonia Eight’s second appearance in court, the charges were dropped. The Crown decided that no conviction could be secured. The problem is that if on December 3 somebody from the government bothered to look at the situation with sober mind, nothing of that would’ve happened. Despite dropping the charges, OPP is still on the hook for unlawful arrests and kidnapping of eight people, who shouldn’t have been arrested in the first place.
It’s just another chapter in the bizarre saga of the Caledonia occupation, where most of the actions of the authorities are devoid of any logic.
The article about the acquittal in the Hamilton Spectator, provides a short interview with Constable Mark Foster of the Haldimand OPP, which provides a glimpse into the way of thinking of the police force:
“He said each circumstance is judged on its own merits and police only act when a situation “reaches a point where it may breach the peace.” When McHale and his supporters go to Douglas Creek Estates, it usually draws a group of natives who mill about on DCE, keeping a close eye on them. Sometimes the OPP get in between the two sides. Foster said police will be monitoring the Feb. 18 rally, but warned “as soon as (the Caledonia Eight group) comes on to the property, it causes unrest and that’s the beginning of disturbing the peace.”
That’s an interesting take – one of the reasons for the December 3 rally was an armed robbery of the Caledonia KFC. When the robber was traced with a dog, it turned out he escaped to the occupied land, so the police didn’t pursue him. Apparently, a robbery doesn’t disturb the peace enough, while the very presence of the peaceful Gary McHale hurts the feelings of the thugs who illegally occupy the land.
Last month I met Gary in Caledonia to get his take on the events. Actually, the meeting was my wife’s idea, because events similar to those in Caledonia are brewing in Japan. The Ainu (native population living in the North) have similar status – they get billions and billions of yen without doing much, but they demand more and are becoming more aggressive. They even try to use the UN against Japan – the same corrupt UN controlled by Third World crooks and Muslim fanatics, which has no problem taking Japan’s money (the country is one of the biggest UN donors).
Gary agreed to a short meeting, but when everything was said and done, it turned out we spent nearly four hours talking (he even brought Merlyn Kinrade with him). He is an interviewer’s dream – so passionate about his cause that when you ask him a question, not only does he give you an answer, but also provides you with information from other perspectives that I wouldn’t have a clue to ask about.
He jokingly calls himself a “gabber”, but it is so fascinating to listen to him – the events he has been through are so extraordinary that your only option is to sit and listen trying to figure out how all of them could happen in Canada. To me, the closest similar experience was the talks with the victims of communism after its fall, when the survivors from camps and jails could finally tell their stories without fear. I am aware that Canada is not a totalitarian country, but the way the Caledonia events were suppressed by the media shakes that belief.
We meet at Tim Hortons, which is his idea. That’s not a randomly chosen location. This coffee shop is located strategically close to the place where most of the violence took place in 2006. From its windows you can see Douglas Creek Estates (the occupied land), several houses and the Canadian Tire store. I’ll get back to what Gary and the others saw from those windows years ago.
Although we don’t ask about his background, from his remarks we can piece together his life. It hasn’t been easy – his brothers and him have had their brushes with the law. He credits his Christian faith for turning his life around. Surprisingly, he is not from Caledonia – he used to live in Richmond Hill (that’s almost Toronto). Gary decided to join the people in the town after he saw on TV what was happening.
Since he is one of the best known faces of the Caledonian conflict, we ask him about his opinion of the media. He praises the bloggers, who are interested in his cause, because they are very supportive. However, not surprisingly, his opinion about the mainstream media is not that high. Many reporters approach him with a pre-conceived agenda and try to present him in a way that fits it.
He recalls an interview with a reporter at his home. His wife asked if the reporter wanted coffee and left the room. When the interview was published, it mentioned that Gary was wearing the same shirt the reporter saw him in at a protest several weeks before that and she also said that as soon as the interview began, he sent his wife to the kitchen. He still wonders if the journalist wanted to present him as a poor family despot.
Nevertheless, he tries to ignore the media hostility to make his point heard. He won’t refuse an interview; he would appear on any radio or TV station that would invite him. He has even been on many native radio stations (surprisingly not all of them have been hostile).
But things can turn ugly with the media considering that Gary is up against a hostile provincial government. Case in point – the local Haldimand newspaper Regional News This Week. It has been published for over 35 years and its honest editor Chris Pickup made the “mistake” of supporting the Caledonia victims.
It regularly published materials by Gary and other activists. Gary gave me the January 11 issue, which contained a large editorial by Chris on the lawlessness in Caledonia. There was also an opinion piece by Gary on Mayor Hewitt’s disgraceful behaviour of refusing to appear in court in an OPP case, and letters from Albert Marshall, son of the late Superior Court Judge David Marshall, and Merlyn Kinrade about the same case.
You don’t need to be psychic to figure out how that rebellious paper was dealt with – the government withdrew all its advertising, amounting to over $2,000,000, which needless to say was a devastating blow to a free newspaper. And that was the end – this week the paper went out of business.
Next we move to the major issue – the native occupation. The situation with the Indian Act and the reserve system is very complicated. The government is responsible for maintaining the reserves, but it doesn’t do it directly – it provides the funds to the chiefs and the band council, which are supposed to do the work. However, since practically there is no accountability, the money is often misused (like in the recent case of Atawapiskat). But that doesn’t relieve the government from responsibility and they have to fix the problems with new payments. The whole scheme breeds a never-ending cycle of corruption from which the ordinary natives always suffer.
The system is so broken that many people of the reserves leave them to live independently (although that is not widely publicized). Things get even worse when you consider that the Indian tribes have a very loose idea about laws and treaties. For example, even if a claim treaty is signed by most clans, years later descendants of those who didn’t sign can decide to start it all over again.
Even the common individual rights don’t apply on the reserves. Often people can be expelled on racist grounds (that they are not pure enough). In other cases bands have decided to banish criminals or people they don’t like from their territory (imagine if the Mayor of Toronto decided to do something like that). Until very recently it wasn’t even possible to file human rights complaints on the reserves.
(In my opinion the whole system is a feudal relic from the past, in which people depend completely on the mercy of the chief. It was no wonder that the Indians voted overwhelmingly against the Meech Lake Accord, which was supposed to provide them with self-government.)
Things get even more complicated when we turn to the Six Nations issue. They arrived in the 18th century after the Crown purchased the Haldimand Tract as a refuge for them from the Mississauga Indians in accordance with the Haldimand Proclamation of 1784 in gratitude for being loyal allies during the Revolutionary War (it’s a long story and you can find more information about it here). Their territory is clearly defined and there is no ground for any claims. As relative newcomers, they don’t even have federal status, which explains why the federal government never got involved in the conflict, allowing McGuinty to mess up everything royally.
It’s a myth that the occupation was started by ordinary natives. The criminals had been a major part of it from the very beginning. Gary tells me about a horrible incident that he and other people watched from the very same Tim Hortons.
It was at the height of the tensions, with many officers and natives roaming around. Across the coffee shop that day there was a police van with several officers and an American, who was an ATF agent (from the Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms Agency), sitting in it. A group of Indians approached the van, opened the doors and pulled everybody out. One of the criminals grabbed the American, pulled out a knife and put it to his throat. The most amazing thing was that none of the dozens of OPP officers did anything to help their colleagues.
Then the Indian released the agent and went to a policeman with hands stretched forward, asking to be arrested. The policeman did absolutely nothing. Then the thug turned around yelling at people: “You see? They can’t do anything! Next I will get you.” Imagine how the people, who were supposed to be protected by the police felt at the time.
Meanwhile the other Indians stole the van with all the equipment in it. In a few hours they brought it back, empty and trashed. It gets even worse – after the US government learned about the incident, they asked for information to prosecute the criminals and McGuinty’s government refused any cooperation.
When Gary and the other people who witnessed the crime learned about that, they contacted the US District Attorney in charge of the case and testified in Buffalo. The case ended in conviction.
(Do we really have a government in this province?)
That’s how the violence was neutralized – many of the main criminals were arrested one by one when crossing the border, mostly on drugs and weapons smuggling charges.
There are many other horrible stories that Gary remembers. The husband, who was kidnapped by the Indians for violating their “curfew” in front of OPP and his wife; then there was that school nearby, which had to have police protection; the local woman whose brother OPP tried to deport, and so on, and so on.
As of Gary, he has also suffered his fair share of abuse – he has been arrested several times (each and every one of them illegally); he has been beaten and had to spend time in hospital.
Even under those circumstances he hasn’t lost his sense of humour. He jokes that he had to become his own lawyer. He had no other choice – from the very beginning he has been harassed through bogus charges that he had to fight in courts.
Thanks to the internet, he has been able to study the laws and the litigation procedures to the point where he can represent himself successfully without losing a case. Not unlike Mahatma Gandhi, who fought the British Empire in courts, Gary can successfully oppose McGuinty’s judicial machine with its expensive lawyers and beat it every time with truth and honesty.
I really envy him for his determination and stamina, which keeps him going. On February 18 he plans another rally at the occupied territory. Nobody knows what is going to happen – he might be arrested or everything may go smoothly, it’s a toss-up. But one thing is sure – he will keep going.
The trouble is that the other side has no intention of slowing down either. Until the Indian Act is abolished and the natives are treated like individuals, there will always be opportunists willing to exploit the current system to get easy money. Just before the meeting of Harper with the chiefs last month, Stewart Phillip, a B.C. Indian chief warned that if the natives don’t get what they want, they may start an Arab-Spring-like “uprising”. I wonder if they’ll still demand their welfare cheques during the uprising.
That’s typical, instead of thinking how to improve the opportunities for their “subjects”, people like Phillip are ready and willing to sacrifice them.
Only a few years ago the ordinary Canadians would’ve listened quietly to him afraid of being accused of racism, but now the outrage was almost unanimous (if we exclude the professional grievance mongers).
I am sure that in our country, which is dangerously short of heroes and courageous people, Gary McHale and the few others like him would gradually help us re-establish a society that is just for all individuals.
