CALEDONIA (AM900 CHML) - Ontario's Premier has been jilted by members of the Six Nations Confederacy, one day after he called on natives to end their occupation of Douglas Creek Estates.

Confederacy spokeperson Janie Jamieson has officially rejected Dalton McGuinty's call to leave the former residential development site.

Jamieson has also repeated her insistence that they won't really know the government is serious, until their title and jurisdiction is reinstated.

The Premier called on the confederacy to end its occupation yesterday, while revealing that the province has so far paid Henco Industries 12.3-million dollars for the land.

The Premier warns the continuing occupation is unhelpful and constitutes the remaining potential for danger in Caledonia.

In the meantime, Provincial Police have issued a warrant for a seventh person accused of assaulting two CHCH-TV cameramen at the site of the aboriginal standoff.

They are looking for 22-year-old Timothy Jamieson of Oshweken.

He is wanted on charges of robbery, assault and obstructing police.
