“No amount of righteous government bluster about living in post-9/11 protection paranoia, last week’s bank firebombing in Ottawa or the precedent of hosting two back-to-back summits can explain how an $18-million security tab for the G20 in Pittsburgh last September, which involved 4,000 police, must balloon to a billion dollars in Toronto requiring 10,000 cops on the ground,” the National Post opined last month.
Not unless the government has a message to send — not to al-Qaeda or its phantom air force but to the people of Canada: welcome to the Maple Leaf Police State.
Public Safety Minister Vic Toews said a billion dollars is a price worth paying to prevent anarchists from torching another bank. Back in the day when anarchists were anarchists and not police agents provocateurs, anarchists liked to quip that the police are here to protect the banks and the rest of us are on our own.
A modernized version of this adage would state that the cops — and NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, and Canadian Forces — are here to protect the global elite and their political minions as they plot world government and engage in photo ops during the G-8 and G-20.
If things get out of hand in Ottawa Canadians can look forward to U.S. troops coming to the rescue. On February 14th, 2008, Canada and the U.S. signed an agreement allowing the deployment of U.S. troops inside Canada. It apparently wasn’t a big deal because the event received minimal media coverage in Canada and the U.S.
Back in 2002 Lord Rumsfeld came up with the idea that Canada is part of the U.S. geopolitical and military agenda.
“Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld announced unilaterally that US Northern Command would have jurisdiction over the entire North American region,” a Toronto Star editorialist wrote at the time. “Canada and Mexico were presented with a fait accompli. US Northern Command’s jurisdiction as outlined by the US DoD includes, in addition to the continental US, all of Canada, Mexico, as well as portions of the Caribbean, contiguous waters in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans up to 500 miles off the Mexican, US and Canadian coastlines as well as the Canadian Arctic.”
