At CBC News, "Group claims responsibility for Quebec Blast":
Quebec provincial police say they are taking seriously a claim of responsibility for an explosion early Friday at a Canadian Forces recruitment centre in Trois-Rivières.More at the link.
A group calling itself Résistance Internationaliste sent a statement to the newspaper La Presse saying it was responsible for the blast, according to the paper.
The group, which has previously claimed responsibility for two other attacks in Quebec, claims it is against the militaristic ideals and practices of the Canadian government.
In portions of the statement published on the paper's website, the group said it aims to "ensure that political, economic and military powers cannot continue their enterprise of indoctrination justifying their imperialist venture, without impunity."
"The Canadian government is not content to merely submit us to the merchant oligarchy and to deliver it our resources, it demands that we enslave other people," the group said. "Suffering the effects of the dangers of gas exportation is not enough, we have to secure a pipeline route (TAPI) on Afghan territory.
"The soldiers of the Canadian Army, let it be very clear, they are not 'ours', they belong to the one to whom they foolishly pledge allegiance, Her Majesty Elisabeth II."

I'm reminded of the film from 2008 (2009 in the U.S.), "The Baader-Meinhof Complex."
I wrote at the time, after seeing the film, about eerie parallels to politics today in the U.S. and the Western democracies. I think we'll be seeing more of this stuff, with riots and protests (like last week in Toronto), and terrorist factions seeking to destabilize the state.
I hope I'm wrong, but for many young people today there's a crisis of legitimation, and they're easily brainwashed by the radical left's fellow travelers in academe, the unions, even the Democratic Party. See, "Yet another terrorist tie to Obama White House."
