Ontario to Compensate Caledonia Developers

From CBC news:

The Ontario government has reportedly offered compensation to land developers who are affected by an eight-week aboriginal occupation near the town of Caledonia.

A spokesperson for Aboriginal Affairs Minister David Ramsay said that two developers and six builders were offered a deal on Thursday in an attempt to break a deadlock over land.

Good news if it settles down this whole situation. I don't think, though, that the developers should have been allowed to start building in the first place.

Not a real expert on the nuances here, however.
