Ontario Provincial Police enforce injunction at protest site in Caledonia

The Ontario Provincial Police enforced an injunction at a "land back" protest camp Wednesday that resulted in blocked roads and arrests. Two hundred and eighteen homes are set to be built at the McKenzie Meadows construction site in Caledonia. The site has formal support from Six Nations elected chief and council. But the land defenders say chief and council do not represent a majority in Six Nations. Nine people were arrested, including one of the organizers, Skyler Williams.
