CAYUGA (AM900 CHML) - The Province of Ontario now owns the lands of the Douglas Creek Estates housing development in Caledonia.

Lawyer Michael Bruder confirms the title changed hands between Henco Industries and the Province yesterday afternoon.

The land will now be held in trust by the Province, pending the results of negotiations to resolve the central issue of Six Nations land claims all along the Grand River.

The land transfer means that an injunction which was granted to Henco Industries ordering protesters to stay off the land is no longer in place.

However, Justice David Marshall has made it quite clear that protesters remain in contempt of his separate order to stay off the property.

The Judge has issued some strong words, saying his order must be enforced if the rule of law is to be upheld in Caledonia, calling it an ongoing problem for both the courts and the community.

Marshall is expected to set a date by which that contempt of court order must be enforced.
