I agree it is probably some kind of hoax, but I thank the OP for sharing, for this is ATS, and threads like this and many other kinds are the reason I
come here, this is not Huffington post and if you are expecting lamestream media stories on this site, I suggest that you don't understand the raison
d'etre of this site - it is for DISCUSSING topics such as these.
Anyway, let's play along with this supposed message and think of possible nuclear disasters that could befall Toronto, while not in Toronto I live in
the surrounding area and have countless friends and relatives that work and/or live there.
East of Toronto there are two massive nuclear plants, Pickering and Darlington, however due to the prevailing westerlies of North America these are
downwind from Toronto, and if either had a major accident they would only have a significant impact on Toronto on one of those rare days when the
winds are blowly directly West, which happens less than once a month. However, regardless of the wind direction Lake Ontario would be contaminated
and this is Toronto's main drinking water supply, though some does come from the North.
As far as I know Toronto was never any major cold war target, I don't know why Russian or Chinese strategic missle commands would target it, most
manufacturing has moved out of the city, the major airport is far outside the city hub, the port in miniscule, and any rail line disruption could
easily be by-passed, no oil depots nor any other natural resource stockpiles.
As for terrorists (and I believe much terrorist activity has been goaded/supported by the PTB in order so they could continue to derive
control/power/profits from the Military Industrial Congressional Complex after the demise of the Cold War, without terrorists this MIC would have no
justification for continuing, terrorists also give them justification for the incremental ramp up of the police state), Toronto has a large Iranian
population so it is hard to imagine them wanting to kill so many of their own; there are actually large populations from every corner of the world in
Toronto, so any transnational "terrorist" would be killing their own if such a device was detonated in Toronto.
Vancouver would make more sense in terms of a strategic target, if Vancouver and it's environs were destroyed any invading army from the East would
have free reign in much of BC, as long as they stayed away from the US borders.
Ottawa would be a more symbolic target, and contains many of the nations leaders, political and bureaucrat and military.
So Toronto only makes sense from the standpoint of a purely terrorist or fear inducing hit.
I hope and I'm sure nothing will happen, peace to all.
