Caledonia, Ont. -- A group upset with policing in Caledonia since the aboriginal occupation of a former housing project are taking their ire to OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino's doorstep.

The activists are planning a protest Sunday at noon out front of Commissioner Fantino's home in Woodbridge, Ont.

The move is being condemned by Conservative Leader John Tory, who says the protest will do more harm than good. Mr. Tory says he and the police commissioner understand that public protests come with their jobs, but that their families and homes should be left out of it.

Organizer Merlyn Kinrade makes no apologies and says Commissioner Fantino has to realize he has to do something.
