The reports coming in consistently point to an individual who had their vehicle impounded not wanting financial assistance from the MCA who had been paying the $1,000.00 fines or bounty’s to recover vehicles.
The party started to try and collect from passing motorists which allegedly resulted in the Seaway requesting that the bridge be closed for “Health and Safety” reasons.
A meeting took place this afternoon between two CBSA reps from Ottawa and members of Akwesasne and the MCA which resulted in nothing. Sources said there were no negotiations and that the CBSA agents simply stated that the $1000 fines would continue and all residents had to report to CBSA when returning from the US.
At approximately 5:25 PM I received a call from the Island that the bridge was being reopened with no explanation. People on the Island are as puzzled as I am and I’m sure many reading this are.
Meanwhile many on the Island are upset, nervous, and the stress level of the community jumped up a few notches.
Is this payback from the Government because a large group of residents of Akwesasne simply do not accept the rule of law of Canada? Do not want CBSA back on their soil with our without guns?
