To the Legislative Assembly of Ontario:
WHEREAS many questions concerning the events preceding, during and after the fatal shooting of Anthony Dudley George on September 6, 1995 at Ipperwash Provincial Park where over 200 armed officers were sent to control 25 unarmed men and women have not been answered,
WHEREAS the officers involved in the beating of Bernard George were not held responsible for their actions,
WHEREAS the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) refused to cooperate with the Special Investigations Unit (SIU) in recording the details of that night,
WHEREAS the influence and communications of Lambton MPP Marcel Beaubien with the government have been verified through transcripts presented in Legislature,
WHEREAS the trust of the portfolio of Native Affairs held by Attorney General Charles Harnick is compromised by his continued refusal for a full public inquiry into the events of Ipperwash,
WHEREAS the promised return of Camp Ipperwash to the Stoney Point Nation by the Federal Ministry of Defense and the serious negotiation of land claims by both the provincial and federal government could have avoided a conflict,
WE, the undersigned, petittion the Legislative Assembly of Ontario that a full public inquiry be held into the events surrounding the fatal shooting of Dudley George on September 6, 1995 to eliminate all misconceptions held by and about the government, the OPP and the Stoney Point People.
