At Ipperwash, residents of the Stoney Point Ojibway band occupied a provincial park to draw attention to a decades-old dispute over land seized by the federal government during the Second World War.

This is an excellent comment on Blatchfords book. I plan to copy this off and take it to my local library so it is available to anyone who might borrow the book.

UW's Aboriginal community does not support this book or the author. Please contact the Director of Retail Services, who operates the Bookstore and made the decision to host this author, and join in the fight to demand that this book is removed and the author event is cancelled. I read this book and found it was not about land claims at all.
It was about the policing of the OPP and the beginning of a 2 tiered policing system. Please note that there is no hate towards Ms. I actually have a great deal of respect for her. She needs to dig a little deeper into her research. This is NOT an attempt to insult her.
I am actually quite alarmed that someone would see this as such. I guess words are interpreted in many differnet ways.

The commenter that wants to ban Blatchford from speaking about the book should be happy she was banned from Waterloo U.
