    Ah, you Canadians are lucky if your problems are ‘leftist’ ‘antifa radicals’. Here in the US we have the likes of timothy mcveigh, james alex fields jr., lots of right-wingnuts packing guns, and a lot more guns than Canada ever thought of!

    I envy you!

    Wherever there’s a demonstration or march, it seems leftist extemists are the on’es causing the problems, vandlaism and attempting to impose their doctrine on others.
    Antifa are the very faxcists they claim to be against. This video shows the masked cowards for the “brownshirt” thugs they are

  3. Avatar J Drapeau says:

    The parents of the man in orange ahirt and face covered have closed their restaurant in Toronto alleging threats. They had earlier posted a letter saying thier son was sorry and he realizes he should have stepped in to get the others to let the elderly couple pass.
    The video shows a different story, the elderly man says “a man” pushed him. and others have shown this fellow was involved in man other radical left demos.
    I don’t believe he’s sorry at all. Antifa cowards with covered faces are themselves the fascists they claim to be against.

    PLEASE press charges! Otherwise this will never end.
