Closed door meeting held at DCE

Hamilton, ON, Canada / AM900 CHML

The province is taking another crack at resolving the impasse in Caledonia between Six Nations and Halidmand County.

Ontario’s Aboriginal Affairs Minister David Zimmer met with both sides yesterday to discuss access to the former Douglas Creek Estates site.

Zimmer called the closed door meeting after a barricade was put up a month ago.

It’s an old hydro tower that’s been at the property for years, but was put in place during the second of three confrontations between aboriginals and a group of people known for protesting the occupation.

The county voted recently to remove the barricade.

The Ministry would not offer details about the meeting.

Six Nations, meanwhile, has opposed the barrier’s removal, at least until the county can keep protesters off the property.
