Caledonia Developer to Get Financial "Aid" From Province

I had wondered what happened to this story since it first appeared on CBC here. Apparently it has mutated into this (from CFRB):

CALEDONIA, Ont. (CP) - Financial aid will be flowing from the province to the developer embroiled in an aboriginal land dispute in southern Ontario, but the company insists the money is not a buyout.

It isn't a buyout because the company still "wants work to proceed on the planned 250 homes."
In addition, the Province will be sending $100,000 to Caledonia, to help offset business lost through the blockade.

Wikipedia gives a brief historical overview of the roots of the dispute here.
