According to the Hamilton Spectator, red power united – the red supremacy group who planned and announced a blockade of the 403 between Hamilton and Toronto today has backed down and called it off.
They’re claiming it’s because “more radical groups” expressed an intent to get involved, but one has to wonder if this is simply the result of police threatening to do their job and remove any unlawful blockade.
One would think that McGuinty would not want the publicity of a major artery into Toronto being shut down for no reason, so maybe he took the proverbial handcuffs off of the police for one day.
