jeffparkinson-dec01-07.jpgThis report contains a summary of events, with direct links to supporting evidence that proves that it was NOT the peaceful residents who were responsible for the violence on December 01, 2007. 

[Photo, top, shows Gary McHale after being assaulted by 6 native thugs in 3 separate, unprovoked, attacks. Photo, right, is of Jeff Parkinson after being thrown to the ground and knocked unconscious by an OPP officer while he was videotaping one of the assaults on McHale.]

Evidence in this document shows:

  • allegations that native women were assaulted by McHale are false;
  • it was native smokeshack supporters who initiated all acts of violence;
  • victims of the violence did not retaliate when attacked.
  • the worst of the violence was incited when one of the women deliberately tried to set up McHale for a false assault charge by falsely yelling to the crowd that he had pushed her. Video evidence clearly shows that she, in fact, assaulted him after making her accusation. 
  • Julian Fantino, commissioner of the OPP, falsely and publicly blamed the innocent victims of the violence the next day, before the investigation had begun, thereby tainting the investigation.
  • Fantino issued orders to officers to target Gary McHale for arrest and travel restrictions – again – prior to the investigation having begun.
  • OPP investigators are targeting peaceful non-native demonstrators with charges while ignoring the many violent crimes of natives who also assaulted police officers throughout the event.
  • OPP investigators are laying charges against non-native demonstrators for actions that did not result in charges against natives who committed similar ‘crimes’ earlier in the day.
