I found this interesting. VoiceofCanada: Ipperwash Papers investigator calls Inquiry “shameful cover-up”. It was preceded by a May 30 entry: Ipperwash Papers vs. Ipperwash Inquiry: 12 Questions for journalists. Here's a sample of the questions:

1. Out of 139 witnesses who testified at the Ipperwash Inquiry, why was not a single one of them a full time resident?

7. Why did the Inquiry fail to call a witness who says he saw Dudley George holding a rifle with a scope on it just weeks before his death?

I remember George's sister testifying about Dudley and his buddies going out that evening,with rifles to do a bit of target shooting in the park. She testified that they were just shooting at a board. Let's see,you have a rifle in a park that is off-limits,protected by cops,and think that it would be alright to get liquored up and fire off a few rounds.Of course,if something bad happens,it is those damn racists.

Hi Kevin,

Thanks for the interest in the Ipperwash Papers.

I have a signed statement from the same witness who also saw natives raking the ground and picking objects out of the sand at the unsecured shooting scene after the OPP abandoned Ipperwash for weeks on orders from native rebels.

The cover-up of what happened in Ipperwash, including the deliberate exclusion of all evidence related to native crime against innocent residents before, during and after the death of Dudley George is a tragedy because it means that more innocent people will become victims of landclaim terror.

$20M and 3 years for an inquiry that deliberately decided not to even ask the question: "How do we prevent violence and crime against innocent third parties during land claims?"

For shame!

A DND helicopter with one or more bullit holes in it made an emergency landing at a school in Forest about 5 to 6 miles from the Ipperwash army camp. This was witnessed personally by a relative of mine. To say that the natives were unarmed at Ipperwash during this crisis is a denial of the truth.
