"The two male suspects, 21 and 17 years old, both from Quebec City, "

"One officer was accidentally sliced with box-cutters during the arrest. No one else was injured."

If officers can't cut themselves with box cutters, then the terrorists have already won.....
2001-11-19 03:50:20 PM  
Seeing as some canadians are french, you think he would have surrendered.

"One officer was accidentally sliced with box-cutters during the arrest. No one else was injured." I smell a lawsuit in Xactos' future.

The 17 year old can't be named. The Young Offenders Act in Canada is FARKED!!!!!!!!

When inmates of maximum security institutions are allowed to run free, well you know...
2001-11-19 04:00:06 PM  
I am not sure what scares me more: the name of the prison (Donnaconna) or the fact that the prison was "...not aware of any missing inmates."
2001-11-19 04:00:37 PM  
Precious. This is all we need to touch off a French-Canadians-are-stupider-than-Canadians-who-are-stupider-than-Ame​ricans flamewar.

I'll start. Suck it, Trebek.
2001-11-19 04:02:34 PM  
hahaha.... he single-handedly accomplished more than all the protesters on the weekend. What a farking joke that was.
2001-11-19 04:02:53 PM  
Note: No Apaches were used in the persuit.
2001-11-19 04:04:11 PM  
Not me gobo. Indoors :)

Sean, when you figure you're talking about the SQ that's not surprising at all. The inmates are probably related to some commander somewhere.

oh yeah mojo?
here's a scientific study I just did:

Canada wins, once again. when we take over the US, you'll all be toiling in our vast maple syrup mines.
2001-11-19 04:05:27 PM  
It's the police that were unaware of an escaped convict. I had to read it twice too. Must be the French - English translation.
2001-11-19 04:08:31 PM  
Omerta_bk....and they weren't even protesters. hahahaaha
2001-11-19 04:09:50 PM  
Police: He was an escaped inmate from the prison.
Prison: We have no escaped inmates.

The Quebec prison surrenders.
2001-11-19 04:11:02 PM  
What do you mean, Canada wins once again? When did you win the first time? Ah yes! When you unleashed Anne Murray and William Shatner on an unsuspecting public. Don't think we don't see through your nefarious plan to steal all of our Puerto Rican comrades to replace your dissident Quebecois. We're keeping our Puerto Ricans, I tell you.
2001-11-19 04:12:30 PM  
wait a sec there, Mojo.

Quebecers are as stupid as a box of hair. There's no need to drag everyone else down.

Bonus Quebec Accent Lesson:
you, too, can have your very own Quebecker accent. follow these simple rules.

If there's an H, take it out.
if there isn't one, put one in.
2001-11-19 04:12:50 PM  

you're forgetting that the Quebecois come with poutine.
2001-11-19 04:14:09 PM  
The Quebecois can take the poutine when they pry it from my cold dead hands.

Top 10 reasons to live in Quebec

Everybody assumes you're an asshole
Racism is socially acceptable
The only province to ever kidnap federal politicians
You can take bets with your friends on which English neighbor will move out next
Other provinces basically bribe you to stay in Canada
Your hockey team is made up entirely of dirty French guys
The province with the oldest, nastiest hookers
NON-smokers are the outcasts
You can blame all your problems on the "Anglo bastards"
2001-11-19 04:29:10 PM  
"Your hockey team is made up entirely of dirty French guys"
Surely you don't mean Larry Robinson, Guy Lafleur, Bob Gainey.

Now if your talking about all the past Nordiques players I agree with you.
2001-11-19 04:30:18 PM  
What do you mean, Canada wins once again? When did you win the first time?

1812. Look it up.

It's Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, and a man makes his way to his seat right at centre ice. He sits down, noticing that the seat next to him is empty. He leans over and asks his neighbour if someone will be sitting there.
"No," says the neighbour. "The seat is empty." "This is incredible", said the man. "Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the Stanley Cup and not use it?"

The neighbour says "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. I was supposed to come with my wife, but she passed away. This is the first Stanley Cup we haven't been to together since we got married in 1967."

"Oh ... I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. But couldn't you find someone else, a friend or relative, or even a neighbour to take the seat?"

The man shakes his head "No. They're all at the funeral."

Also we (along with the rest of the Commonwealth countries)did the majority of the fighting in WW2 while almost all of you Americans sat around with your thumbs up your asses until you got bombed by the Japanese.
2001-11-19 04:34:29 PM  
I love going to Montreal for hockey games, I always have a mega rib platter at Barby Barns and Sunday breakfast at Ruebens.

RIGHT ON TOPIC, SilentObserver:

Four soldiers were hanging off a cliff in the middle of a war. There was
a Russian, an American, a Canadian, and a Quebecer. After hanging there
for quite some time the Russian said,
"My arms are too sore and if I fall to my death my countrymen will
be proud that I died for my country." So he let go and fell to his death.

The American said, "Well I can't let the Russians look better than any
American, so I will let go and fall to my death, and make my country proud
of me." So he let go and fell to his death.

The Canadian said,"Well I can't let the Russians and the Americans look
better than the Canadians. I'm going to do something to make my country
proud of me."

So he pushes the Quebecer off the cliff.

Typical leftists, preach peace but use violence to protest globalization.

War in Afghanistan is wrong. Accidentally killing civilians is reprehensible, but maiming and murdering police officers to protest globalization is righteous.

FB are you not reading the full article on purpose?

This was not linked to a suspected Taliban plot to put Anthrax in Canada's maple syrup supply.

Since there are so many Canadians on here, does anyone else have a problem with that new Canadian ad about the American going over the border for beer, and drops the case?

There is no way the guy would be smart enough to know to buy Canadian beer, yet dumb enough not to check the case to see if any of the bottles were salvageable.
2001-11-19 04:49:47 PM  
He's smarter than you think. Being caught with a beer bottle in public in Ontario gets you a $110 hole in your wallet, *and* you lose the beer.
2001-11-19 04:55:36 PM  
maximum security must be pretty slack in Canada eh?
2001-11-19 04:57:48 PM  
yeah, but he could have kept them for the walk back. He didn't have to open them.
2001-11-19 04:58:27 PM  
Just going down to the 7-11 guard, be right back

You know the war of 1812 was between America and England.
Canada was not even involved. Hell the French saved out asses in that war.

Also if the Candians did so much in WW2 why was it that the Russians and the Americans captured Berlin. Also I recall around the clock bombings of Germany were conducted by the American and English air force. Further more Canada lost the French and Indian war. However I'm not 100% on that so someone else can check.
2001-11-19 05:05:19 PM  
Canada was not a sovereign nation during the War of 1812.

Over 1 Million Canadians served in WWII. Number serving US armed forces: over 16 million. Kindly redo your math, SilentObserver.

Plus, you gave the world Celine Dion. We're keeping our Puerto Ricans. You cannot force us to surrender them with her banshee caterwauling.
2001-11-19 05:07:30 PM  
Also 600,000 americans were killed in WW2 canada was far less under 50,000.
2001-11-19 05:08:50 PM  
Another thing has anbody heard of Canadian Sherman? Hell no not only did we kick a lot ass in WW2 we made all shiat too.
2001-11-19 05:10:05 PM  
come on.....everyone knows that canada never does anything...ever...the terrorist deal....come they actually are an important party? ha.
2001-11-19 05:12:09 PM  
In truth, however, I think Canada is a wonderful country and I never met a Canadian I didn't like. Plus, you gave us Rush (for people who find Led Zeppelin insufficiently cerebral) and Triumph (for people who find Rush too challenging)
2001-11-19 05:12:50 PM  
Kerouac: Actually, as far as the cops are concerned, "open" means "not in the case." It doesn't matter is the cap is still on.

Learned THAT the hard way
2001-11-19 05:14:41 PM  
Also we (along with the rest of the Commonwealth countries)did the majority of the fighting in WW2 while almost all of you Americans sat around with your thumbs up your asses until you got bombed by the Japanese.

Silent, about 200 years ago Americans fought a little war with the British. The end result was that the English monarch was no longer the head of our state. Also, the US didn't lose the War of 1812 - it didn't win it either. We burned York (Toronto), later you burned Washington D.C. Thanks to the British shelling of Baltimore we got what was to become our national anthem. Also Canada didn't become self-governing until 1867 so the US fought the British not the Canadians in the War of 1812.
2001-11-19 05:17:14 PM  
I don't have any misgivings toward Canada since they gave us hockey. But I am mad about Celine Dion, Bryan Adams, and Rush.
2001-11-19 05:23:30 PM  
Hell we should stop knocking on France and start dissing Canada Now all of you are going what a farking nut I must be but I got some good reasons

1. France gave us the Statue of Liberty. Our symbol of freedom and courage.

2. France sent it's navy to help us in the revolutionary war.

3. France sent it's navy again to help in the war 1812.
In both wars we would have lost if the French did not help.

4. The French underground captured the enigma (the german decoding machine) in WW2 which let us know about every thing important nazi germany was doing. i.e. ship movments and troop stuff.

I say we make fun of Canada because France is just to damn nice to say they surrender at everything. SO NOW I SAY WITH GREAT SARCASM AND I HOPE MY FELLOW NON-CANADIAN FARKERS TO SAY-------CANADA SURRENDERS TO THE FRENCH!

thank you and good night.
2001-11-19 05:25:06 PM  
p.s. i'm not french just a little more respected of our true allies
2001-11-19 05:27:57 PM  
I'm mad about Celine Dion, Bryan Adams, and Rush too.

And no Canadian worth his salt would leave beer behind. cops or no cops. hide it in a bush or something.

Tah. I'm going to drink now. you "the Canadians never did anything in the war" guys go look up Dieppe, for starters.

And in regards to that flippant Sherman comment, it must be said that Canada was producing planes and training fighters for the Battle of Britain while the US was still watching from the sidelines.

canada gave the world TOM GREEN!
