Jamie I have a question.. How will Canada Look in the eyes of other leaders if they allow a group of Natives Man an entrance to OUR Country ?? I do not think for one second that other leaders are not following this story closely, It makes the Government look foolish in my personal opinion. If Mohawks occupy the abandoned CBSA facility on Cornwall Island the only way for the Government to correct it is 1. Negotiate a peaceful resolve with the Mohawks 2. Suck it up and move back While working things out. 3. Bringing in the Army I… Read more »

I think you have to dig further then the TENT, There is rift among the community, While the people at the “Tent” are all for it, it seems the majority are not.

I think if they try it the government will just close the border crossing.

Glassbowl,

Honestly do you think that CBSA or the Government can just say the Hell with it and close the border ?? Considering the last time the closed it, It wasn’t CBSA that reopened it it was the US that basically said “Hey We’re not doing your laundry, We have a good relationship here that we don’t want to ruin Border open”

If you think for 1 second that this Border will be shut down I got some land in Alaska for sale, Great for Sun Tanning !!

From Canada’s perspective, it doesn’t matter who dresses up like border guards on the Island, unless they are CBSA, people will still have to report to the CBSA manned Port of Entry in Cornwall. The incrementing fines are meant to attach a monetary value to fear, since native are generally thought of as poor. By raising the price of noncompliance, Canada may hope to end this protest soon. How many natives will want to pay $3000 for their car? When the natives accept Canada’s decision, the fines will be wiped clean, again.

I say I’m proud of all of us in akwesasne, as for manning the tent, if there comes a need to show a presence that all of akwesasne will be there in 5 to 20 minutes. Let them play their games at the grand circus at the end of the bridge. We all know how canada looks right now I went over to cornwall yesterday at 12:30 on the outside lane and man does that women need a puppy. Rude very rude!!!! It’s cbsa like her is the whole reason they are were the are now!!! The sould all go… Read more »

The solution is simple. You block and eventually demolish the north span of the bridge.

How would requiring canadians to report to two customs not be inconvenient? Why would the Island residents want to process themselves?

A better solution would be for Canada to continue upgrading facilities in Cornwall and end their extortion policy towards people declared native. A POE in Cornwall makes more sense.

Why would residents of the Island have to report to Canada Customs? That makes no sense. The Island is not part of Canada, the city of Cornwall is. When residents decide to visit Canada they can be processed at the POE.

The MCA is a department of INAC and is trying their best to implement Canada’s decisions. It’s the community that continues this protest. Canada has always induced a compromise with a nice big project in the past, this latest one will have to be pretty big.

You good?, though clearly ignorant people do not seem to realize where this has already arrived to- I personally notified the CBSA that that agency/organization was placed into receivership by myself on Friday evening, so that is simply the end of CBSA and yes that is the entirety of that agency. All who were illegally employed to work at enforcing an illegal border on Onawaregeh are out of work=caput! Those of you who disillusionally believe that you live in a civic construct called Cornwall, which is in Kanienke’ha:ka territory, need to now prepare yourselves to report to the Kanienke’ha:ka nation… Read more »
