Message delivered last week to The City of Brantford’s Councillor Wrobel:
Dear Councillor Wrobel,
As Special Assistant to Bill Squire (who is the spokesperson for the Kanyen’kehake (Mohawks) of the Ouse / Grand River, I write to you on an urgent basis in respect of difficulties I have experienced in accessing copies of the budget for the City of Brantford for the period of 2005 to present. Naturally, you can understand that as creditors, the Kanyen’kehake (Mohawks) of the Ouse / Grand River remain increasingly skeptical and distrustful of debtors such as the City of Brantford, who appear to persist with their failure to respond to requests which they remain under a obligation to address lawfully with all claimants.
To make matters worse, it appears to me that the City of Brantford remains engaged in the corruption of Mohawk lands as well as, inter alia, the unauthorized collection of “tipping fees” at the Mohawk Street dumping site situated on our sacred lands. This is notwithstanding NOTICE delivered to Mayor Chris Friel (see attached) last week which he has publicly acknowledged as having received.
As of today, the City’s official website continues to publish the following Tipping Fee Schedule:
Miniumum Load Fee:
All loads 150 kg (330 lbs) or less: $5.00
Material Rate/Tonne Residential, Industrial, Commercial, and Institutional Garbage over150 kg: $65.00.
“…The City as of April 2, 2012, will no longer be accepting commercial/industrial loads of cover materials. Contaminated soil and/or soils generated from site remediation/cleanup activates will still be accepted at the applicable tipping fee rates. In addition, mixed clearing waste will also still be accepted at the applicable tipping fee rate.”
Be advised that Kanyen’kehake (Mohawks) of the Ouse / Grand River are prepared to grant the City of Brantford a period of 72 hours during which we expect to receive copies of the budgets for Corporation of the City of Brantford including an Accounting for Invoice No. RW 1914011.
I will attempt to reach you at your office by telephone later today in order to discuss these matters in detail.

An “Act of Genocide” Indian Residential Schools in Canada & Crimes Against Humanity Concealed – Revealed
The Honourable Justice Murray Sinclair was appointed the Chair of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada in June, 2008. Justice Sinclair pointed out that the United Nations’ definition of genocide includes forcibly transferring children of a group to another group based on race.
He argued that in the past, Canada was careful to exclude its residential school policies from being scrutinized under this definition.
“But the reality is that to take children away from their families and place them in another group in society for the purpose of racial indoctrination was and is an act of genocide, and it occurs all around the world.” – Justice Sinclair
“Systemic Racism: Serious Crisis” – Former Supreme Court of Canada justice Frank Iacobucci
‘Systemic racism’ toward Onkwehon:we (indigenous) people in justice system is outlined in a stinging 2013 report by Former Supreme Court Justice Frank Iacobucci.
“I have called it a crisis, a serious crisis. And I am not an alarmist. We are talking about the lives and liberties of people. I don’t know if you can get more of an important issue subject than that.
... If we don’t take hold of this seriously, we are going to, I think be perpetrators, unwittingly, of personal tragedies here.
... We can’t continue to treat First Nations as objects. We have to be partners. I don’t care if it is in the justice system or economic development. " - Former Supreme Court of Canada justice Frank Iacobucci

Haldimand Territory Calls for Unity by Elders
April 11, 2013: U.N. Ambassador in Geneva Admits 3 Human Rights Rapporteurs’ Visits to Canada Were Finally Approved
During Canada’s appearance in Geneva before the Human Rights Council’s Universal Periodic Review, Canada’s Ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, Elissa Golberg, was asked by delegates from Chile why UN Special Rapporteurs had not been granted access to investigate, monitor and assess Canada as their mandates require.
The council was told that the three requests to visit Canada as part of the UN’s monitoring and assessment of international human rights had recently been approved. Finally, Special Rapporteurs who are independent experts appointed by the UN’s Human Rights Council to examine and report back on a country’ situation or a specific human rights theme.
