CALEDONIA—About 50 people gathered Saturday, November 21, 2020 at the Argyle Street road blockade in Caledonia. The group demanded action from the federal government in seeking a peaceful and decisive end to the ongoing demonstrations at the McKenzie Meadows site and in Caledonia as a whole.

The event was planned and organized by Mike Henderson, founder of the Facebook group Caledonia and Six Nations Matter, and Kim Wiley, a local realtor who has lived in Caledonia for over a decade.
