CORNWALL ISLAND, AKWESASNE Neither side of a dispute over the arming of border guards showed signs of backing down from their position as a native community continued to protest the presence of more guns in their community.As result, both border crossings and the two bridges were shut down before midnight. And they remain shut down."In a circumstance where there is the protest, the inability to ensure safety if we keepthe border crossing open which has happened right now at the Cornwall crossing a decision was taken to close that crossing, to close the bridges," said Public Safety Minister Peter Loan while answering media questions Monday morning. "That will remain the case until such time as the local Mohawk band indicates they're willing toaccept the border officers being armed as is government policy."Mohawk Council of Akwesasne (MCA) Grand Chief Tim Thompson said he had attempted to negotiate a compromise with CBSA officials for the third time last week late Sunday night, but instead the officers vacated the building on government orders.Thompson insisted the officers were never threatened by the Mohawk community.At the time, Thompson said there were up to 400 residents of Akwesasne First Nation camped near the building at the crossroads who are concerned about the safety of their community on what they consider their own sovereign territory."We have many issues that face our community," Thompson said Monday afternoon during a press conference on Cornwall Island. "We have houses nearby, we have children getting on buses, we have a community store. We know there are hotheads in this (customs and immigration) compound. We cannot allow CBSA to move forward with their initiatives."Van Loan told CTV that CBSA officers are "not hotheads. They actually improve the safety of border crossings."The minister said the Cornwall Island crossing will not be exempted from arming because the Conservative government plans on committing to its promise to arm all 4,800 border officers at land and sea ports of entry by 2016.With the final deadline still seven years off, the MCA requested arming on Cornwall Island be delayed to allow time for officers to be trained in cultural sensitivity by the community, but it has yet to be granted.When Thompson asked for access to the CBSA building Sunday night to negotiate, he was denied."They just up and left," Thompson said.The crowd cheered when they heard the news, said Thompson.In the meantime, Thompson says his people will continue to camp out at the intersection of Island Road and International Road until the federal government agrees to negotiate the terms of the CBSA arming."We're in this for the long haul," Thompson said. Sunday saying the CBSA would going ahead with the arming. Thompson noted the letter didn't have a signature on it.Van Loan told the council on Thursday during a brief meeting in Ottawa that the decision to arm the officers is ultimately in the hands of CBSA president Stephen Rigby, who told the council the same day the arming initiative is going ahead.The MCA didn't hear from Rigby or Van Loan on Monday Adidas D Rose 7 Player Exclusive despite repeated requests for meetings.Council spokesman Brendan White said the bridge closure is a peaceful but temporary resolution to a situation that could have boiled over into violence under different circumstances.The community has filed numerous complaints of harassment and Adidas Adipure Basketball Shoes Yellow/Black

suggesting the Mohawk Warriors are a violent faction of Akwesasne poised to respond violently to the CBSA arming are unfair.White said those in need of medications have been given a two week supply, while other supplies are being ferried across the St. Lawrence River to the island by boat.

that the council wanted the Mohawks to rally against the arming of the officers peacefully, a request they've appeared to respect during three rallies and a month long sit in."It's a small victory," added White, "but we still have a long way to go."Thompson believes recent media reports Adidas Boost 350 Red
