Protest activities will be occurring between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. today on Highway 1, just inside the Manitoba border.

The OPP is working with the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) and those involved in the protest to minimize the impact on the travelling public and to ensure order and public safety.

The OPP’s objective is to maintain the safe flow of traffic and, when delays occur, restore traffic flow in the safest manner possible, all while minimizing the impact on the traveling public, where possible.

Motorists should check in advance for road advisory information and monitor media for the latest updates.

  1. Why the hell is this allowed? I can’t believe that this is happening. I have never seen a non aboriginal blockade and if I did I bet it would be taken down pretty quick. Do they not realize this kind of crap is not doing their cause any good at all and more likely causing people to get pretty pissed off. Time the government lets the police do their job and stop this bullshit.

    1. I’m more interested in why there’s a blockade taking place, and that’s not mentioned in the “article” by the citizen journalist. Kind of lopsided journalism if you ask me.

    2. I agree!! They are creating resentment plus anger in Manitoba too!! We are fed up with their daily bombardment of everything of descendants of Aboriginal/Indian/Siberian migrant squatters, who never owned this land and act all superior while telling those who are Aboriginals that they need to be made “aware” of Aboriginal issues!!

    3. Because dink’s like you have are ignorant to historical events that occurred. Being lied and blinded by the government and bloods within.

  2. Canadian born white males are invited to attend….. the police eventually HAVE to arrest somebody for breaking the law.

    1. They were invited?? And yes they would be the first to be arrested and charged for interference of and blocking a public highway!! Double standards!!!

  3. If this is the only way for these people to get the attention of the government for CLEAN WATER, then I am with them.
    Its bull shit that they have to drink bad water this long.

  4. It’s always about many of “them”, the money and the many chest thumping, egotistical, holier than thou, superior thinking! Like Canada has an orchard of money trees and the attitude of “you owe and must have respect, understanding and compassion for Aboriginals/Siberian” runs rampant!!! No one else matters as far as they are concerned!!

  6. Right on Bill, After what happened at Oka many years ago nothing surprises me anymore. In fact people can expect much more of this bs because our politicians and judicial system have no backbone and allow this to go on. We are the only country in the world that is promoting a special distinct status and rights based on the colour of your skin. If that doesn’t fit the definition of racism then I dont know what will. Both Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King must be rolling over in their graves because this rubbish. For those bleeding hearts out there, please dont offend my intelligence and tell me we ripped off the natives or stole their land. . They knew what they were doing when they entered into treaties/contracts and sold the land many years ago and now it is seller remorse on thier part. If I sell you my house in 1950 for ten thousand dollars and it is worth 100k in 2015 , I cant come back and say to you that you ripped me off and I want the rest of the money it is worth now. But for some reason the government is allowing just that to happen when it comes to land claims. There were no treaties or negotiations for the natives in the USA. They were either moved to other locations or they were massacred. Our government was much more civil and humane with the natives here . They negotiated with them, made treaties and set up reserves for the natives because the natives wanted to live a “traditional life’ Now all we hear is they dont want assimilation yet they do want the same lifestyle/ benefits as non natives . So much for a traditional native lifestyle. For too long when certain demands were not met, the R word was used to enforce the demand. Only thing now is people are getting quite bored with that overused stale word. It no longer has has the effect on many that it used to. Someone once told me there is a sucker born every minute and two more to take him. I wonder how long it will be before people wake up and realize they have been taken.
