CALEDONIA, Ont. -- One of the barricades at an aboriginal protest near Hamilton has been dismantled.

Large machinery worked overnight to remove tires and tangled metal from the Highway 6 bypass, which has been blocked since April 20.

Another barrier is still up in Caledonia, where aboriginals have been protesting a housing development they say sits on native land.

Premier Dalton McGuinty called off talks with protesters Monday, saying the group's violent actions last week make it impossible to work together.

The barrier at the Douglas Creek Estates housing development is still up.

The Highway 6 bypass is a main trucking route, and will have to be inspected if it does reopen.
