Seaway International Bridge Closing SPIN – No answers AKWESASNE CORNWALL

Seaway International Bridge Closing SPIN – No answers AKWESASNE CORNWALL

L I N K Mike Peeling today writes some spin about the bridge closing on Saturday.  Still no real answers though.

If it was one person that caused a ruckus surely there were other solutions than closing an International Border Crossing and impacting the area communities as happened?

Why no comments from area politicians?  I asked Cornwall Mayor Bob Kilger last night about this weekend and his comments were cautious and guarded.    I asked him if he thought the temporary station in Cornwall would still be there for the winter?  He felt quite strongly that there was “no quick fix” to the situation and that discussions would be a bit more difficult.

Where is the accountability?  Who gave the order to close the bridge and who gave the order to open it?

If it was the Seaway Bridge authority why did representatives of Akwesasne and the MCA meet with CBSA officials from Ottawa in the Stormont Room of the Ramada Saturday afternoon?

According to reports which have yet to verify the MCA has spent over $20,000.00 helping to pay off those $1,000.00 fines so far.

Last night there were some meetings around Akwesasne.   A lot of new faces in the tent and some of them were very upset.    The feeling shared with me was that a strategy was needed to deal with these attacks and vehicle seizures.   Another bridge closing is expected by most in attendence.

And the building is almost ready to go up on the tent site with the floor and two of the walls ready to go as of this morning.  (pics to come)

So let me get this right, One man all 5’2 or 3 of him and what 140 pounds, Caused CBSA with their 9mm’s In Cornwall with the Back up of the RCMP within 30 seconds away CCPS,OPP and AMPS to panic and close the bridge ???? Obviously they must need more training if they for whatever reason can not handle 1 man! I don’t know about anyone else but I’m kind of worried now about crossing into Cornwall Ontario, Where the border is protected by a bunch of Children with guns that do not have the ability to properly deal… Read more »

Harper government receives their directives from the Queen of England, right? Onkwehonwe, those on Kawehno:ke are not Canadians, right? Why is so much energy going into trying to force Onkwehonwe to be tricked into or forced into becoming Canadians that are subjects to the British North American Act? Is it really so scary to imagine that free Onkwehonwe still exist here? Another interesting fact to note, is that Onkwehonwe have never murdered or harmed any CBSA agents around Akwesasne. More interesting to note that CBSA agents (the few making such a bad name for the entire CBSA union) actually have… Read more »

Hello ‘admin’, The past murders are not rhetoric, nor drama, nor symbolic. Some of my family and close friends have lost their babies, as a direct result of the abuse they received from a few CBSA agents. Lawsuits are going on now, as a result. CBSA agents put a bullet in the back of Jake Fire Ice, at that abandoned CBSA building on Kawehno:ke, as he was reaching for his tobacco pouch as a peaceful gesture. Next time you visit our lovely island, take a good long look at the wooden statue that faces north. He is holding his arms… Read more »

Hello admin (Jaime?) Canadians in the media, appear to prioritize money in this situation. I know that outspoken, often to not represent all though. Onkwehonwe are thinking about the future of our children and our unborn. My thoughts are focused on the safety, wellbeing, and health of my self, my friends and family here on Kawehno:ke. My thoughts are focused on a healthy future of our children and unborn here in Akwesasne and all Onkwehonwe communities. CBSA has proved for many decades, that they have no place in any plans that involve the safety, health, and wellbeing of Onkwehonwe. Actions… Read more »
