CALEDONIA, Ontario – on November 16, 2020, Arrell Law LLP commenced a class action
proceeding on behalf of business owners and property owners who have suffered financial
losses as a result of the various blockades that have been erected in relation to the McKenzie
Meadows occupation in Caledonia, Ontario.

The action claims damages against the Ontario Provincial Police Commissioner Thomas
Carrique, Ontario Provincial Police Chief Superintendent John Cain, Ontario Provincial Police
Inspector Philip Carter, and Her Majesty the Queen in the Right of Ontario.
The Caledonia Class Action 2020 seeks to compensate those residents and businesses affected
by the 2020 land occupation.

“It is unconscionable for the government and its agents to allow local businesses and property
owners to bear the costs of their inaction,” says Peter Murray, lead counsel in the action.
“Caledonia’s local economy cannot be written off as collateral damage in this situation.”
