In the blog posting below the author outlines the events and issues to 9 August 2020. Clearly it is toppling under its own weight, so the circumstances arising since 10 August will be noted here.
First I want to make a personal plea to any who will listen. We in Caledonia have suffered indignities of the same nature as our present predicament since 2006 - 14 years. I know people who have been highly traumatized by the situation. The occupiers of the Douglas Creek Estates site were brutal and cruel in the extreme, and made life miserable for neighbours. Some would be / have been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Only someone who lives here can fully appreciate the scale of the toll these constant "protests" and blockades take on us locals. I slept 2 hours last night and I live between the protest site and the Bridge relatively removed geographically from the issues facing those on the margins of the Losani Development (Caledonia Drive and Celtic Drive area).
For those who need to get up to speed on the events of the last 14 years, the late Christie Blatchford's book, Helpless: Caledonia's Nightmare of Fear and Anarchy, and How the Law Failed All of Us (Doubleday Canada, 2010) may still be available. The current blog is perhaps the best (most comprehensive) single site for events since 2010.
We in Caledonia need a resolution, and promptly. This latest "event" is the most miserable in a long string of them since the Spring of 2006 when the Douglas Creek Estates Development on the west side of Argyle Road at the south end of Caledonia was stolen. Now it is the Losani Housing Development on the east side of Argyle Road along McKenzie Road (this road being the only other way out of Caledonia to the south for many miles - since the Highway 6 Bypass is also blockaded).
With that being said, I return to a chronological rendition of events since 10 August 2020.
