We ask you two questions regarding this weekend’s Vehicle Seizure and Bridge Closure in Akwesasne

We area creating two polls about the activity by CBSA seizing of Akwesasne Resident’s vehicles and the closing of the bridge.

Should Akwesasne Residents returning from the USA have to report to CBSA if not entering Cornwall? IE Just going their homes on the Island?

How can you guys think it was a publicity stunt when it didn’t even make the front page of the national newspapers?

So you think it only could be a publicity stunt? For cry out loud man. It is obvious that it was a pressure tactic. Negotiations were going a little too slow or maybe the Mohawks negotiating team were digging in its heels on some points a little too much so it was time to take it to the next level.

Admin, I 100% agree with you.. Seeing the injustice being done here in our own back yards makes me embarrassed to be Canadian. I mean its like everything else, Children in Canada are starving, Going to school without proper clothing! Yet we make sure that nobody goes with out in Iraq or Afghanistan, And why is that? Because if Canada didn’t they would have a black eye on the International Level. Glassbowl, god forbid you ever have to stand up and “Dig In Your Heels” on something you believe in.. So many people are full of hate today its insane.… Read more »

It’s crazy what the government is doing.. Ok They closed to POE, Why bring in Cornwall Police and the OPP to close the Southern lanes of the Seaway International Bridge? This is nothing more then a major breach of the Peoples Rights and who is to blame? Since Saturday I have been told it was MCA, Then CBSA then AMP.. I am to believe it was CBSA. And the fact that they want to go back but Will not until a Peaceful Gathering place is removed ie the TENT, Crazy.. Oh wait they want to with out permission expropriate that… Read more »

To 666577: Good neighbours? Now the pot is calling the kettle black!! Why wouldn’t you want them to expand their facility? Why wouldn’t you want them to carry sidearms? This is absurd.

I think the best way forward would be to take the toll money collected and use part of it to demolish the north span. Then sell the south span to the MCA for $1 and give them 70% of the remaining toll money.

Glassbowl,
when you say “pot is calling the kettle black!!” What are you referring to ??

I do not understand your choice of words or that statement.. You must be assuming again, I live,work and pay taxes in Cornwall.. I am not Native, Although I am highly versed in Native traditions.

Tear down the bridge you say ? that’s a good one. You would rather put your tail between your legs and run like CBSA then deal with the issue at hand ? Typical

In the end all of these shutdowns will serve to harm Cornwall far more than Akwesasne. It impacts those of us who wish to do business and trade in Cornwall as well as those who have family or reside in Cornwall. Otherwise, we can live just fine without the bridge and in fact will simply adapt if something as unlikely as the suggestion from Glassbowl were to actually occur. Were it to happen in reality the response of the US DHS would be funny, considering all the money put into their shiny new facility. I don’t want the CBSA to… Read more »

To 666577: Tearing down the bridge is dealing with the issue.

To Rezrevolt: The US would still need its new facility for the traffic coming off the island.

Wow glassbowl I thought Ottawa spent money Aimlessly !! If you think for one second that USCBP would allow such a move you got another thing coming.. Fact of the matter is, They think what CBSA is doing is somewhat of a joke.

Not saying I agree with the “tent” and the people for it, But the Cause is a good one.
