CALEDONIA -- Six Nations protesters meet with a federal mediator today in the ongoing effort to lift the Caledonia blockade.

This, after former premier David Peterson reported he's making headway in ending the Six Nations standoff.

He said yesterday that a tentative "understanding" has been reached on a number of issues, but did not elaborate.

The blockade went up after a police raid last month failed to remove aboriginal protesters from a disputed housing site.

Meanwhile, the blockade may delay completion of a hydro upgrade in the area known as the Niagara Reinforcement Project.

Hydro One says work on the project continues, but in areas outside the Caledonia region.

The project involves upgrading transmission lines from Niagara Falls to an area just north of Caledonia.

The work is scheduled to be completed by next year.
