Post more, this is the most interesting story of the day so I'll post more as I come across them. Mods, please leave this in Open for a day or so? I'd like more people to be exposed to this than the usual handful of people who frequent IP. Plus, I don't care to debate this politically, that is what IP is for. I just want to say that my thoughts are with all of those who have friends and family in Toronto and I hope they can all go about their lives safely. :bow:

Sorry, that's not what Open Forum is for, and the G8/G20 meetings and the protests against them are political issues. :neutral:

Fair enough, I still don't understand the forum stuff but I'll learn one day. We needed a new thread title at least.

This one is interesting. Protesters sure do like to wear BEARDS.

And this is my favorite so far. Send in the Cavalry!

Look at this guy and his buzzcut and his "scumf***" tattoo. I guess we can just be grateful that he stays in Canada and doesn't come to teach English in Taiwan

The headline on Al-Jazeera is:

Canada's brewing 'insurgency'

:roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao: :roflmao:
nice article though
http://english.aljazeera.net/focus/2010 ... 46236.html
Canada has mounted an unprecedented security operation that stands to go down as the largest in the country's history.

The local and federal governments have resorted to significant measures: barricading the downtown core behind a massive galvanised perimeter fence, erecting checkpoints with x-rays, uprooting trees that police say could be used by demonstrators, and converting a sound stage into a massive temporary detention facility in preparation for mass arrests of protesters.

But with Canadian soldiers, snipers, commandos and police tactical units representing the sharp end of a security budget that is poised to top $1bn, the most significant threat to business as usual for the summit may turn out to be far-flung rural blockades enacted by Canada's long suffering native communities.

"It's a very dangerous situation," said Douglas Bland, a retired Canadian forces lieutenant-colonel who is now the chair of defence management studies at Queen's University.

In recent years in particular, Canada's indigenous communities have shown the will and potential to grind the country's economic lifelines to a halt through strategically placed blockades on the major highways and rail lines that run through native reserves well outside of Canada's urban landscape.

"The Canadian economy is very vulnerable," said Bland.

"More than 25 per cent of our GDP comes from exports of raw materials, but especially oil, natural gas and electricity to the United States."

"It's undefended and undefendable infrastructure, the pipelines and power lines and so on, and it runs through great spaces of open countryside and they run through aboriginal territories.

"It would take a very small number of people very little time to bring [it] down," said Bland, who is the author of a "barely fictionalised" account of native insurgency in Canada, entitled Uprising.




Hooboy, when Al-Jazeera of all places is referring to an "insurgency" in Canada, I......I need a drink. :aiyo:
