Government Negotiators Respond to Last Week's Events in Caledonia

    Government Negotiations Postponed With Haudenosaunee/Six Nations

    TORONTO, Sept. 18 /CNW/ - As a response to last week's violent
confrontation in Caledonia, government negotiators will not participate in
this week's scheduled negotiation meetings with the Haudenosaunee/Six Nations.
    Ontario considers last week's confrontation unacceptable. Violence is
never a solution to any dispute. Occupations and unlawful tactics put public
safety at risk and slow down resolution of these important land claims issues.
    The provincial government continues to support the federal government in
working through challenging issues in a peaceful and respectful manner in
order to find lasting and common solutions. The province also recognizes the
efforts of the Haudenosaunee/Six Nations' leadership in denouncing violence
and committing to a peaceful resolution. We hope to be able to resume
negotiations next week.
