LONDON -- Prime Minister Stephen Harper says he feels bad for the people caught in the middle of the aboriginal blockades in Caledonia.

But he won't get involved in settling the land claim at the heart of the dispute, saying it is a provincial matter.

He calls on everyone involved in negotiations to stay calm and achieve results.

Harper made the comments during speech in London yesterday.

One blockade came down Tuesday, but two others are still up in Caledonia.

Hydro workers also have the electricity back on across the area.

The region was without power for days after a transformer was damaged following violent confrontations between protesters and residents.
