HELPLESS - Caledonia's Nightmare of Fear and Anarchy, and How the Law Failed All of Us

By Blatchford, Christie

Toronto: Doubleday Canada, 2010. (xii) 258 pp. Black boards lettered in copper on the spine; headband; illustrated with colour plates and a map. Lightly rubbed on the corners of the dustjacket; price intact; no interior markings. It started when a handful of protesters from the nearby Six Nations Reserve walked onto Douglas Creek Estates in Caledonia, Ontario, then a residential subdivision under construction, and blocked workers from entering. They said the land was theirs and no one could build there. For whatever reason, the Ontario Provincial Police did very little to defuse the situation and nothing at all to end it; in refusing to do anything about the Native occupation, they, along with the Liberal politicians, completely failed the people of the area. The standoff went on for years. The cops did nothing. The natives continued their occupation. And the problems have not gone away, nor will they. The Contents are: June 9, 2006; Before; During; and After; followed by Appendix A; Appendix B; and an index.. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good+/Very Good+. 8vo.

STATEMENT RESPECTING THE EARL OF SELKIRK'S SETTLEMENT UPON THE RED RIVER

By Anonymous.

Toronto: Coles Canadiana Collection, 1970. (c) 194 pp. Trade paperback format. First Thus - Republishes the John Murray 1817 edition. Light edge and corner wear with a crease on the lower left of the back cover and an uncreased spine; no interior markings. This is, of course, about the founding of Winnipeg. It was wiped out by floods so many times, one has to wonder why Selkirk was so stubborn. Even today, Winnipeg receives more than its share of high waters, although a few years after the major flood in 1950, the government built the Red River Floodway. In 1997, with the help of sandbags, a major disaster was averted. Winnipeg lies at the bottom of the Red River Valley, a flood plain with an extremely flat topography. And it has four major rivers: The Red, Assiniboine, Las Salle and Seine. The full title of Selkirk's story is: STATEMENT RESPECTING THE EARL OF SELKIRK'S SETTLEMENT UPON THE RED RIVER in North America; Its Destruction in 1815 and 1816; and the Massacre of Governor Semple and His Party - with Observations Upon a Recent Publication Entitled - A Narrative of Occurences in the Indian Countries. Following the narrative are the Appendices: A: Opinions of Counsel Relative to the Hudson's Bay Company's Charter; B: Transaction Relative to a Seizure of Provisions by Mr Miles Macdonnell; C: Letters from D Cameron to the Settlers at Red River; D: Deposition of Michael McDonell; E: Deposition of John Cooper; F: Deposition of Robert Sutherland; G: Deposition of Angus M'Kay; H: Deposition of Neil M'Kinnon; I: Deposition of Michael Kilbride; K: Deposition of John Bourke; L: Deposition of Hector M'Eachern; M: Deposition of Hector M'Leod; N: Deposition of George Sutherland; O: Deposition of Patrick M'Nolty; P: Deposition of Alexander M'Lean; Q: Deposition of Joseph Kenney; R: Deposition of Donald M'Kinnon; S: Deposition of Michael M'Donell; and T: Deposition of James Flynn..
