Harper Government 1 – Akwesasne 1 – Courts Deny Injunction vs CBSA – December 21, 2009

A Canadian Federal Court has denied an injunction request that would cease the actions of seizure of vehicles that fail to report to the temporary CBSA station in Cornwall Ontario for residents who return to Canadian territory from the US.

Currently residents of Akwesasne that cross the line between the US and Canada are forced to sit hours on the Seaway International Bridge to report and then turn around to go right back their homes on the Island.

The practice, essentially a pressure tactic devised after CBSA left the Canadian border crossing May 31, 2009, has led to the seizure of over 60 vehicles.

We’ll have updates and comments as things evolve.  Here is a link on the Standard Freeholder who also covered the stories.  They have chosen to not allow comments though on this story.

What do you think Cornwall and what do you think Akwesasne?   How does this ruling change the situation?
