VANCOUVER/CKNW (AM980) - As the tensions continue to grow between between aboriginal protestors and residents of Caledonia, Ontario, natives on the Lower Mainland are gearing up for demonstrations to show their solidarity.
A group within the Vancouver area operating under the banner of the Six Nations Solidarity Network have been meeting to discuss how they can support the Six Nations people.
Chief Stewart Phillip with the Union of BC Indian Chiefs says the violence being seen in Caledonia cannot be tolerated, "If we need to go out onto the highways and the rail lines and the bridges of this country to bring sense to that situation and compel governments to act, then we're prepared to do that."
Last month, local natives snarled traffic on the Lions Gate Bridge in a sympathy rally.
