CALEDONIA (AM900 CHML) - A major development in Caledonia today, the native blockades are coming down.

Bulldozers have spent the night removing the barricade on the Highway-6 bypass, but police are still blocking the road while the work is being completed.

Inspectors will have to make sure the highway is safe before it can be re-opened, but that will likely happen later today.

It comes after Premier McGuinty called off the negotiations with the natives last night, saying the violent actions by aboriginal protesters made it impossible to work together.

We know the barricade on the bypass is coming down, but we don't know if it's the same story for the barricade along a rail line.

And there's no word yet whether Six Nations police are helping find the six men wanted for last Friday's violent incidents.

They're wanted on charges which include the attempted murder of a police officer, forcible confinement and robbery.

Chief Allen McNaughton said last night, any attempt to seize the suspects could spark trouble and he doubts they will be handed over.

But that may have changed this morning.

The occupation of the Douglas Creek estates remains in effect this morning.
