Franz Hartmann, the co-ordinator for the Alliance for a Liveable Ontario, says it's up to residents to contact their MPPs, push them to recall legislature early and return the lands that were removed as police investigate.

"As Ontarians, residents and citizens, it's our duty to speak up," said Hartmann.

"Our job is to let our elected officials know we do not accept this."
