McGuinty Started the Ipperwash Inquiry to make Mike Haris look bad - Justice was not served. Not one Resident of Ipperwash was ALLOWED to testify. Not one resident was permitted to speak about how much the residents were victimized by the illegal Native Occupation.

Not one Recommendation by the Inquiry to HELP the residents of Caledonia, Hagersview, Deseronto etc.

Viewer's Feedback:

Dear Mark,

The Inquiry has done what we all suspected.  Placed all the blame on everyone but the Natives in all the scenarios leading up to the death of Dudley George.  Absolutely no comments on native aggression against innocent residents except for perhaps counselling should be available to those suffering negative effects of native occupations.  No concern for whether the land claim is valid or lawful in the actions and subsequent actions of the First Nations in the dispute.  No mention of whether non-natives traumatically affected financially or as victims of crime should receive compensation or for that matter attention of any kind other than that information from police and government should be transparent and honest.  The whole Province will now be held hostage to the native agenda,  and McGuinty now can fall back on this whole report of how he is doing the right thing.  I found it particularly abhorrent that he placed most of the blame on the news release of Mayor Thomas. The Judge was extremely harsh towards this news release in stating it was exaggerated and created the  most tension in the whole situation.  I guess the Mayor was wrong to be sympathetic to his terrorized constituents even to the point of gun fire on the works crew.  Unfortunately Mayor Thomas is dead and could not talk to the Judge himself in defense of his statements.  According to the Judge all we need now is tons of money and a multi-layered beaurocracy, education for everyone on native issues , and a police force that continues doing exactly what they have been doing for a decade and life will become squeaky clean and rosy again.
