Canadian Anarchists! And they're threatening more in Toronto when the G20 meets downtown. I find this kind of weird. Canada has never really been a violent nation (although we did burn the White House...twice
) and our banking system is one of the best in the world, but these people are still pissed over native rights.

Stand corrected: Almost forgot the FLQ.

Royal Bank Canada was a major sponsor of the recently concluded 2010 Olympics on stolen indigenous land. This land was never legally ceded to colonial British Columbia. This hasn’t stopped the government from assuming full ownership of the land and its resources for the benefit of its corporate masters and to the detriment of aboriginal peoples, workers and the poor of the province. The 2010 Winter Olympics increased the homelessness crisis in Vancouver, especially the Downtown Eastside, Kanada’s poorest urban area. Since the Olympics bid, homelessness in Vancouver has nearly tripled while condominium development in the Downtown Eastside is outpacing social housing by a rate of 3:1. The further criminalization and displacement of those living in extreme poverty continues apace.

"Royal Bank Canada is one of the planet’s greenest companies” according to one of its own brochures. Coporate Kanada saw fit to include RBC as one of the top 50 in a competition dubbed Canada’s Greenest Employers, which purports to recognize organizations that have created “a culture of environmental awareness.” Yet RBC is now the major financier of Alberta’s tar sands, one of the largest industrial projects in human history and perhaps the most destructive. The tar sands, now the cause of the second fastest rate of deforestation on the planet, are slated to expand several times its current size.

The games in Vancouver are now over, but resistance continues. An RBC branch can be found in every corner of Kanada.

On June 25-27 2010, the G8/G20 ‘leaders’ and bankers are meeting in Huntsville and Toronto to make decisions that will further their policies of exploitation of people and the environment. We will be there.

We pass the torch to all those who would resist the trampling of native rights, of the rights of us all, and resist the ongoing destruction of our planet. We say: The Fire This Time.


UPDATE: Police close in on firebomb suspects

Sorry, I could not help it.

Just to be certain, is it possible with this video to check their feet for signs of "agent provocateur" footware?

Highly Unlikely. The government has no reason to go around firebombing itself at this point in time, it only rolls out Agents to help smash protests during major events.

Wow I live here and I didnt even hear about this, but I am not surprised.

Us Canadians are getting angry at the fact the corporations run our country, there's no competition to offset the outrageous prices the "top three" companies can charge for anything from cell phones to utilities, taxes keep on getting higher and higher in the name of helping buisnesses, meanwhile the rest of us are at the bottom are struggling to get by.

Our country is concerned with having beautiful green trees on every corner of every city while families struggle to pay the rising costs of daycare, food and everything else required to live.

Our government is more concerned with making sure people in wheelchairs have prioritized access to our public transportation system EVEN WHEN THEY HAVE THEIR OWN PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM, even if that means that a single mother and her newborn and toddler will be left waiting to see if she can get on the next bus. Who cares if she is late for work, or is already paying outrageous daycare costs and cant afford a car.

Yes, the natives are getting restless, and so are the rest of us.

The natives.
I really hope they don't think they can get anything accomplished by bombing banks. The Canadian government just needs a reason to take them over once and for all and cut all their rights.

I think this was an isolated issue, not a "Canada's about to blow" thing.

Just being snarky. Your post did make me realize something, though.
In the back of my mind, I don't think I truly ever believed that the government rolled out agents.
I always thought they were just rogue cops itching for some trouble.
I'm sarcastic and naive, I guess.

I'm still trying to figure out what these people plan to accomplish by hitting Toronto.

This isn't really on the news that much. Domestic terrorism, you would think, should be front page material. I guess they're trying to downplay security councerns for the G20 meeting in Toronto.

I understand being angry about the land issue, but this is not the right way to do things. People can get hurt if this keeps going. Not to mention if this is due to some 'indigenous' persons then it hurts the image that much more. Crazy.
