Wake up call.

I'm not going to bother commenting directly on the group of men and youths arrested recently, accused of plotting a terrorist attack right here in Canada. Others are far better qualified than I to comment on it.

Having read this column, though, I just had to pass it on.

To those who continue to keep the blinders on and pretend that Canada isn't in danger of a terrorist attack, or believe that if we are, it's all because of the Big Bad Bush, this is your wake up call.

To quote the very end of the article...

"The terrorists in this country will keep trying against Canada. They are like bugs. Crush a few of them, but others will rise. Ottawa will be a target because of the symbolism for the terrorists. It is the capital. Like London and Madrid. It won't just be the Parliament, it'll be where many people are. Like a big shopping mall or arena. That is why we must support CSIS and the police and not listen to people who are so ignorant."

  1. Wow, that's a very interesting article! On one hand there are people like Warren Kinsella trying to organize a big "We are not afraid" campaign, but when you read something like that, it raises the hairs on the back of your neck.

    Thanks for posting that link.
