“It’s Either A Terrible Mistake Or Something More Sinister”
Karl Dockstader on being charged in connection with his reporting on 1492 Land Back Lane

Karl Dockstader doesn’t know why he was arrested, either in a specific sense or a more general one.

In the specific: Dockstader says the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have yet to explain the basis for criminal charges laid against him on Wednesday for mischief and failing to obey a court order, other than that they are somehow connected to his presence at 1492 Land Back Lane. The Six Nations encampment and blockade in Caledonia is subject to an injunction, but he doesn’t know exactly what the police are accusing him of having done.
