Notice To Claimants

December 14, 2020

The legal team have received a few inquiries from prospective class member applicants questioning whether in the event that the blockades in Caledonia were to be removed the legal team would cancel or withdraw the 2020 Caledonia Class Action lawsuit.
Let us make it absolutely clear that this lawsuit will NOT be dropped until such time as adequate compensation has been attained on behalf of all class members who have been affected by the blockades and protests in Caledonia.
It has been made very evident to the legal team through the application process that businesses, residents and prospective new home owners have suffered significant financial losses due to the blockades and protests in Caledonia and should be compensated for same.

Notice To Applicants

December 29, 2020

Assuming that the 2020 Caledonia Class Action is successful, which we fully expect, it will be necessary to appoint an Adjudicator to assess each and every class members’ losses.  It was very evident in the previous Caledonia class action that many of the businesses, residents and home purchasers did not have a good accounting of losses, expenses, and costs. Therefore, this led to a convoluted adjudication process and as a result a significant time delay in effecting payouts to the class members.

I urge all 2020 Caledonia class action applicants including businesses, residential homeowners and new property purchasers to create a folder and keep track of losses and extra expenses incurred by the presence of the blockades.  This accounting should be on a weekly basis and back-dated to the beginning of the current blockades.  This will make the job of the court appointed Adjudicator easier and as a result quicker to remit compensation funds.

Each business, resident and individual affected by the current blockades in Caledonia will have differing circumstances, but for example losses can include items such as loss of profits, loss of wages, loss of property value, extra gas expenses, extra daycare fees, extra grocery delivery fees, and costs for items such as black out curtains, installation of alarm systems, security cameras etc.

Important Notice to Class Members

February 19, 2021

After filing our notice of action on December 4th, it was legally necessary to wait 60 days from that date before we could issue our formal claim. We have now filed our formal claim known as a Statement of Claim.

You can download a copy from our case developments page. It is in adobe PDF format but for security purposes it is a protected document which prevents printing, editing, and copying so you will need to read it on your computer. This comprehensive Statement of Claim is the culmination of many months of research and preparation.

Several class members have queried whether we have enrolled them as class members. Once you fill in your registration form on our sign up to join page on this website a response in confirmation appears stating: –

“Thank you. Your registration has now been added to the 2020 Caledonia Class Action.”

We do not write back a confirmation email to you.

On a final note, we have added an historical account tracking the Grand River Land Ownership back to their inception. This is a highly informative document entitled “What happened to the Six Nations Lands on the Grand River” and written by lawyer Ed McCarthy. This document is a remarkably interesting read and in addition will appeal to any history buffs among our Class Members.
