Blockade at Native protest site finally comes down

Protesters from the Six Nations Reserve removed a road blockade in Caledonia on Tuesday, a day after tensions erupted.

The removal was hailed as a positive step in relations with local non-Natives. It occurred after representatives of both sides held talks.

The protesters have occupied a construction site since February 28. They are opposing a housing development on land that was taken from the Six Nations.

The government sent negotiators to help resolve the situation but some people say the government isn't doing enough and has ignored the Six Nations and local non-Natives.
