So Canuks are "harmless" eh ???
LeftyRads are LeftyRads - and dangerous to the max. As
bad or even worse than the fascists.
Every time you hear the foreign press talk about "extremists"
they're always talking RIGHT-wing extremists - unable to

to remember the Red Brigades, Shining Path, SLA and many
other dangerous homicidal nutters.
