Ontario Premier Dalton Mcguinty Today Issued The Following Statement Regarding The Events In Caledonia
"I want to join with people across Ontario in calling for calm and goodwill in Caledonia. The confrontation we saw today has no place in our society -- and it does nothing to help resolve this difficult situation.
I want to commend the Ontario Provincial Police for their outstanding professionalism in restoring order to a very tough situation.
Over the past several weeks, all parties made progress in building trust and mutual respect. Today's events were an unhelpful setback. However, we must continue working to find common ground and move forward in a peaceful environment.
Our government is committed to working alongside the federal government, local officials and First Nation representatives to ensure that we find a lasting solution that allows all parties to renew their shared commitment to building a strong community."
