BELLEVILLE, Ont. – A First Nations protest continued Tuesday on a rural road east of Belleville, Ont., with a section of the route shut down for a second straight day.
The demonstrators moved onto Shannonville Road on Sunday night, and Napanee OPP closed the road (between Old Highway Two and Airport Parkway) on Monday for safety reasons.
The protesters are supporting a plea by Mohawk activist Shawn Brant for a federal inquiry to be called into the large number of murdered and missing aboriginal women.
A small group of protesters remained at the scene overnight, and police continue to monitor the situation.
