Several vehicles have come from Mohawk territory with complicated border history. The mayor of Cornwall, Ont., and the grand chief of the nearby Mohawk community are both denouncing unfriendly notes recently left on the windshields of cars with out-of-province licence plates. While Ontario is under a stay-at-home order due to the spread of COVID-19 and Quebec has an overnight curfew starting at 8 p.m., many of those cars come from Akwesasne, a Mohawk Nation territory that straddles both the interprovincial and international border. “There are people in Akwesasne who have Quebec, Ontario, New York plates,” Mayor Bernadette Clement said. “They are very regularly in Cornwall, in grocery stores, doing all of the things that are allowed … purchasing essential goods, seeking essential services like medical care.”
