    Greetings ladies and gentlemen.

    It doesn't smell good... not good at all...

    CBC News - Montreal - Blast hits Trois-Rivières Canadian Forces site

    The report doesn't say much, but here is a complement of information that I just heard on the radio...

    As most of you knows, July 1st was Canada Day. Well, rumors says that on Canada Day, the police forces of the Province of Québec would have received a call from some wacko stating that a bomb would explode somewhere in a federal building. (The police denied to confirm or not that rumor.)

    A rumor was also stating that this wacko was a member of a separatist group. (Once again, the police did not comment.)

    It could be anything, from a natural gas leak to a bomb blast. But, if separatists start to attack our boys, it could get nasty... very nasty.

    ***INFO UPDATE***

    CHOI-FM just reported that the police confirmed that they did receive a bomb threat about 20 minutes before the bomb went off.

    Yeah Man, really. Didn't they get the memo, had a vote, you lost. Move along...

    If you still believe in starting a separate country, a one way ticket to Somalia will be issued, free of charge!

    Nope. Although they've "been sleeping" those last 30 years or so, such groups like the FLQ are still alive. Even though they were no longer planting bombs, they were having fun by painting graffittis here and there... And rioting in the streets of Québec City or Montréal on Canada Day.

    Note that the "separatist part" was not confirmed yet, the only thing confirmed is the phone call. So it could have been done by anyone from a separatist to an angry Muslim or even the depressive mother of a dead soldier. We don't know yet.

    But the modus operendi sure is familiar to the FLQ.

    ***NEWS UPDATE***

    LCN just reported that the group Résistance Internationaliste claimed the responsability of the bombing.

    That group (according to the RCMP) is a relatively small group of Anti-Capitalist pinkos. In short, they are against the presence of Canadian troops in Afghanistan, aginst their way of recruiting in schools and planned the bombing in responce to the recent events of the G-20 in Toronto.

    What happened to the good old days where soldiers were seen as patriotic heroes ? What happened to patriotism ? :rolleyes:

    Oh, and glad to know that you find it interresting, guys. :D

    Why bother calling these guys Résistance Internationaliste? That is what these guys call themselves, but why should the rest of us (or more specifically, Canadians). Why not call them "Separetist Assholes of Quebec"? This whole Résistance Internationaliste gives them cred when, if you really think about it, their nothing but a bunch of losers with a chip on their shoulders. And 99% of what they do is done for show.

    Kill the lefty romance of it and they're not much different from a bunch of bored high school students breaking windows for kicks.

    Well, they may be separatists (like 99% of socialists around here are), but they seems to be more against capitalism as a whole. They even blew up an electric pole of Hydro-Québec... Is there anything more Québeker than Hydro-Québec ?

    I agree with you, though, they're nothing more than breakers... for now.

    The day they'll start kidnapping and/or killing peoples (willingly or accidentally), they'll join the FLQ as terrorists. And then, it could get really nasty. Don't want a second October Crisis with the martial law being enforced.

    Don't we ...? Maybe time to separate the "sheep" from the "goats" :).

    I don't think you understand what "martial law" means... It means that anyone (police or soldier) can arrest anyone for absolutely no reason and lock you up in a cell without charging you with any offence just because the said cop or soldier just didn't like your face. So it could go something like this...

    Don't fool yourself, it happened plenty of time during the 70s. No matter if it was the FLQ in Canada or the IRA in Ireland.

    And honestly, I doubt Canada could survive a secound crisis like that without breaking in an open Civil War.

    Anarchists. We have 'em here too. They are uncoordinated communists looking to just watch the world burn.
