On September 6, 1995, Dudley George was shot by Ontario Provincial Police officer Kenneth Deane. He died shortly after midnight the next day. George had been participating in a protest over land claims in Ipperwash Provincial Park, which had been expropriated from the native Ojibwe after the Second World War. A confrontation erupted between members of the Stoney Point and Kettle Point Bands and officers of the OPP''s Emergency Response Team, which had been instructed to use necessary force to disband the protest by Premier Mike Harris''s government. George''s death and the grievous mishandling of the protest led to the 2007 Ipperwash Inquiry.
