Innocent Students Being Used as Unsuspecting Pawns
Meow everyone, this story is one that every single student who attends university needs to know about, because, it affects YOU, whether you like it or not, whether you know it or not. Yes, yes, tuition fees are high, the food in the cafeteria sucks and costs ten time what it should, text books are now equal to mortgage payments. Yes these are all important issues and I will address those in another story down the road. Today, I do, however, wish to address a topic that can very literally effect your safety at your school.
If you attend a school that has a student union that is affiliated with the Canadian Federation of Students ( CFS ), you already, by default, whether you like it or not, are being forced into a political affiliation with groups whose actions are often questionable and possibly even dangerous, and your student union is putting you into that danger. CFS affiliated student unions are usually highly radical and far too often, have a significant anarchist component to them. This anarchist affiliation may be by extension through student groups and / or events run by the student union with invited groups being participants. The Ryerson Student Union is one great example of this , as they have not only a student group dedicated to anarchy being run by Elyse Moya, but they also have student group events where they openly invite the worst of the worst groups such as OCAP, Fight Back , the International Socialists as participants. It is not uncommon to have some of the top level anarchists show up to these events.

On a recent event , there was a panel discussion about what was touted as women’s issues. However, the headline guest speaker was a person named Harhsa Walia. Walia is a well know anarchist from BC whose racist rants are sadly, far too well documented. In her speech at Ryerson, she proclaimed that the ” sole purpose of white males was to oppress none white females. ” Walia is also a significant black bloc anarchist and had a role to play at the G20 here in Toronto a few years back.
The University of Toronto Student Union is no different. That student union is very closely connect to the anarchist movement and has a long history of supporting anarchy .
The University of Toronto Graduate Student Union was in the center of a huge controversy during the G20 when they housed about seventy black bloc anarchists from Montreal . Those anarchists where arrested in a raid and to the best of my understanding, the charges were later either stayed, or dropped outright. However, there were a few problems with the UTGSU and their involvement in that the person who was in charge of this, Daniel Vandervoort claimed that he was on site the entire time . In fact, he was not at all on site the entire as he was a key participant in the G20 protests on the corner of King and bay the day the cars were set on fire.

Vadervoort of a devout CFS follower. The CFS was well represented at that same post during the G20 as seen in the image just above.
Another key figure during that same G20 and in fact, at that same spot was a well know anarchist by the name of Kelly Rose Phlug-Back .

She was one of the person who was later arrested, tried and convicted for her crimes. Recently, she was released fro prison and is now on a speaking tour about her experiences as a so called political prisoner. More on this in a moment.
Kelly, its like this. Tens of thousands of law abiding persons managed to protest peacefully during the G20. They all had messages they wished to convey and did so in accordance with the laws , dong it in a civil manner. You and 200 of your knuckle dragging neanderthals felt that somehow you were exempt from participating in a lawful, peaceful protest. You are the architect of your own demise, you caused these actions to be taken against you by YOUR actions. Its about time you faced up to that and accept responsibility for your actions instead of blaming everyone else. Your just an angry young lady who is pissed of because you got caught, tried and convicted, Get over it, that’s what happened to criminals
George Horton, another convicted G20 criminal will also be speaking here at the same event . This is the guy who attacked e police car with the Sgt. still inside on Queen Street. This guy didn’t even want to admit that there was a human being inside this car he was attacking, rather the Sgt. in the car was simply part of the state. George, your one sick puppy if you cannot identify a human life as something you about to assault. This cop had a family too but in your fucked up head, its perfectly fine to assault this person because you don’t like what he does for a living? The story can be read here at :
and here :
I indicated that U of T GSU has a history of anarchism. Prior to the G20 another high profile person from the U of T student Union, Angela Regnier was arrested during a major blockade of a local highway here in Toronto. Ms. Regnier was also the director of Outreach and Communication for the U of T student Union and , surprise, surprise, was vice chair of the CFS national executive. Are you seeing a pattern here yet?
OK, lets move ahead to the event I am referring to. There is an enormous problem with having convicted criminals who knowing , willing and with premeditation, held this city hostage with acts of what is, in my opinion, nothing more that urban terrorism, plain and simple. Then, she has the audacity to refer to herself as a political prisoner. Well, Kelly, I think that you have had a little too much schnapps for one day and it effected you because, here in Canada, we don’t have political prisoners. The people who are in jail, are people like you, criminals who have committed crimes, got caught, went through the court system, received a fair and impartial trial, was found guilty, and sentence was pronounced. Maybe, if you would have spent a little more time in the library reading books, you might have learned that you are not in North Korea, or the former Soviet Union where they DO have political prisoners. No Kelly, you are a common thug, a convicted criminal, nothing more.
So, why are the students in danger then? The students are in danger because an event like this will no doubt draw a number of other anarchists as a show of support. Unsuspecting students who attend this event thinking this is a genuine event to showcase women’s issues will soon learn that this is nothing more than more hate filled rhetoric against an establishment that a certain group of people simply don’t like and don’t wish to play by the rules established. They have already proven this time and time again.
Students, especially first year students are at the greatest risk here. For many, this is likely the first time they are away from home, the first time they have true freedom to do what they want. They are highly vulnerable, highly impressionable and highly susceptible to suggestion. These new students want to belong and feel like they do belong. Groups and events like this certainly will attract them and before they know it, they have been indoctrinated to a life of anarchy, a life of crime and before they know, they are in way over their heads.
Before anyone starts to jump at my throat, yes, I am fully aware that we have the freedom to say what we want, the freedom to hang out with whomever we want and so forth. However, with freedoms comes a huge responsibility. That responsibility is that we need to ensure that our actions do not cause harm to others. Ms. Back, by her actions caused significant harm to others in the way of property damage. The tax payers of this city bought that police car she decided to destroy, and to replace it, taxes have to be raised. She destroyed other private property that directly effected the lively hood of independent businesses whose insurance rates went up as a result of the damages caused. That means your insurance rates went up as did mine. Her conduct effected the very people who can least afford to take that financial hit, you and I.
I might feel differently about her of she would have shown even a slight hint of remorse for her conduct and actions, but as with all the others who were sent to prison for their crimes during this same G20, like the cowards she and the rest of her cohorts are, she instead, put the blame on everyone else. Kelly, YOU swung the sticks, YOU broke the windows, YOU got caught. People like her don’t deserve our support and sure as hell don’t deserve to be held up as some sort of hero. Hero’s do the right thing and help people, not ruin their lives.
