looking at your discussion on the pot thread, there is another good one if your interested. A small town near me called Caledonia has had the main through highway cut off for nearly 18 months over a land dispute. This has happened before and the town was / is essentially held hostage. I don’t understand what possible reason the OPP find to let the situation continue but there it is. Grand River land dispute - Wikipedia
I am quite familiar with the situation there, and have had discussions with an OPP inspector about it. He was quite frank about it, they know it would end in another armed standoff as the natives are well tooled up but unlike Oka, are keeping weapons out of sight.

Edit: I remember the first time l went up on the Bruce peninsula and having to stop at a checkpoint set up by natives and pay a toll, wasn't impressed, but was in no position to argue.
