8/10/2017 11:23:42 AM
Members of the Haudenosaunee Confederacy Chiefs Council are currently blocking Argyle Street South to protest the Burtch Lands.
They are handing out a press release that says their barricades will not come down until their demands are met.
They wish for the Province and Canada to return to the negotiation table, that Ontario returns the Burtch Lands under the Haldimand Proclamation of 1784, and that Six Nations band council withdraw their injunction against Kris Hill and the people of Six Nations.
The OPP is currently on hand to preserve the peace and maintain safety.
Argyle Street North is closed at Highway 6, and southbound traffic is closed at Braemar Avenue.
The OPP asks everyone involved or affected by the demonstration activity to remain calm, patient, obey the law and respect the rights of others for the benefit of all.
