The Ontario government has formalized a deal with the owner of the tract of land in Caledonia that's been occupied by aboriginal protesters since February.
Henco Industries Ltd. has agreed to sell the Douglas Creek Estates property to the province for $12.3 million.
The sale essentially voids the court injunction sought by Henco to remove protesters from the land.
The property, land Six Nations says is rightfully theirs, will be held in trust by the province while negotiations continue to settle the dispute.
Henco says it felt it had no choice but to sell the property, even though the deal is likely worth far less than the investment would have yielded.
