On September 6, 1995, Dudley George was brutally gunned down by Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) officer Kenneth Deane. George was among the Aazhoodenaang Enjibaajig - the Stoney Point People - who peacefully reoccupied Ipperwash Provincial Park after it had closed for the season in 1995. They were protecting sacred burial grounds located there. None were armed. On the night of September 6th, after a meeting of government officials, the OPP opened fire on the Stoney Pointers, killing Dudley George.
Deane was sentenced to only 180 hours of community service for killing George. The Ontario government continues to refuse demands for a public inquiry into the incident.
