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.”
