Contractor approached, asked to leave development site in Caledonia – Haldimand Press

February 29, 2024

CALEDONIA—On Tuesday, February 13, 2024 a developer and contractor were confronted by a group of Indigenous protestors on a lot of land across the street from the Caledonia Baptist Church on Argyle St. S.

The lot of land is located just down the road from the Douglas Creek Estates, one of two areas in Caledonia that were previously set for development and taken control of by Indigenous protestors. According to Ward 3 Councillor Dan Lawrence, the commercial lot in question was purchased by Steven Webster, a Toronto-based developer, approximately 8-10 years ago.

“If you’ve driven past the property, you’ll see that they’ve put up the Warrior Flag and the Haudenosaunee flag as well, and they’ve spray painted over the sign that’s out front as well,” said Lawrence. “There’s no barricades at this time.”
