Cornwall police hand community activist Mark Macdonald an eviction notice from Transport Canada.

CORNWALL, Ontario - The architect of a bizarre protest involving the erection of a shed adjacent to a controversial chemical tank project said the structure will be moved.

In an email to local media Mark MacDonald said he made his decision "in the spirit of co-operation.

"I am calling on our MP Guy Lauzon and Transport Canada to show the same spirit of co-operation and tell us when these chemical storage tanks will be removed from our waterfront."

Earlier MacDonald told Seaway News if Transport Canada, which owns the property on which the shed now rests, ordered him to move the structure he wouldn't.

But after consulting with Cornwall police MacDonald thought better of that strategy.

He plans to have the shed, which is used annually as part of 'Cabane a Sucre' celebrations in Cornwall, removed by Wednesday next week.

    Bizarre ? Is that what you call it when someone tries to stand up for something in Cornwall ? This proves that You do not have the right to free speech or to gather in peaceful protest .. did someone rewrite the constitution?
