WHO ever you are , and WHERE ever you are, say ONLY these 5 words to police if taken into custody -
Remember these five words.
This will save you in many cases.
You can be held for what seems like days and possibly be (physically and mentally) abused by the cops, but DO NOT SPEAK TO THEM other than,
even if they stop at your door and ask questions, DO NOT ANSWER QUESTIONS,
The police have stolen from my personal belongings in the past and I wonder if those items will appear in a future crime scene!

"The eyes of the world are on Canada, and it's extremely important for Canada to get this right."

News : Montreal cops are wimps, black metallers are wimps; groups now both scared of communist rioters ?

Graveland's concert was shut down on Saturday night.
2016 / 11 / 26
Graveland  /  Aosoth / Forteresse / Uada  / Mayhemic Truth / Sangus  /  Ossuaire
Police intimidated ? or told by their superiors to let these masked bums do whatever they want ?

Metal Fans that want to attend concerts, or wear some t-shirt / patch, that others disagree with are being met with violence ?
The ones that start it should not be surprised it is a two way street.

Look into any violent political movement and you will see innocent family members, their friends, and  employers also targeted, on BOTH sides.
Well, professional protesters, they don't work for a living, so that leaves their family / friends / lovers to be given extra special attention.

the Montreal Police did not care about a taxpaying venue, or about metalheads buying beer and supporting the economy...
Some longhairs were simply out for a night to have a good time, before going back their mundane jobs on Monday morning, but that just won't do. They are not allowed to do that (yeah, I am being sarcastic).

Not that I am a fan of the Toronto police arresting G20 protesters in 2010 , because it was mainly the peaceniks and innocent bystanders being held in cages and abused, but not the violent / destructive agitators who were busting store windows, setting a police car on fire, etc.

If you were not in the area, then you had nothing to fear. What do these public protests do anyways?
The morons watching the news at 6 o'clock will see only see everyone there as idiot terrorists, including you, even if you were not wearing balaclavas / ski masks.

Glad I don't attend shows, don't attend rallies, don't talk to anyone.
No chance of my limited freedom taken away...but I will enjoy watching this country go down in flames.

Decades ago, a lot of people warned this could happen here.
They escaped the murdering communists in Europe to come here, and now it is starting here.

Worse is better. The only way for some people to wake up and face reality.

TRUTH: Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001) Quote

Jay: All you motherfuckers are gonna pay. You are the ones who are the ball-lickers. We're gonna fuck your mothers while you watch and cry like little, whiny bitches. Once we get to Hollywood and find those Miramax fucks who is makin' the movie... we're gonna make them eat our shit, then shit out our shit, and then eat their shit that's made up of our shit that we made 'em eat. Then you're all you motherfucks are next. Love- Jay and Silent Bob. NOTE: I think a bunch of Toronto bands have probably said or felt the same, not about Mirimax, but about Hollyweird

Pomroy-Palooza August 13th- Mod Club Toronto

722 College St. W.,Toronto Saturday 13 August 2016, 19:00

 August 13th- Mod Club Toronto- http://www.wherevent.com/detail/Noel-Peters-Pomroy-Palooza
We are doing a benefit show for an old Bramalea thrasher named Tim Pomroy. Really, really cool dude from back in the Beyond/EBS/Mold/Distortion/FBI days who has MS now. Loved by a lot of people in the metal scene.
Noel E Noel (inertia entertainment) has booked the club- Epileptic Brain Surgeons are reuniting to play- as well as a ton of other old metalheads from back then.
A bunch of the members of bands have got together to form a couple of cover bands- featuring members from Entropy, Varga, Exciter, Prismind, etc...Some surprise guests from bigger Toronto bands are rumored to be making an appearance as well...
Official Lineup:
Skool of Rock
Strictly Sabbath
Dark Vintages
Epileptic Brain Surgeons

I'll be DJ'ing in between- and plan on playing a ton of old local bands, demos and try to keep it mostly Canadian or old school heavy music (though- i'll be taking requests by donation- so who knows what else people will want to hear)...
Hopefully you can make it out to that.

Senile Decay

I wrote about these dudes before.

Thanks to Nick Popovic from Toronto hardcore 80s band Senile Decay.
We now have a pic of the cover art of the demo!
and.... a band photo! (see below)
Nick is also in a Motorhead tribute band! contact them at .... motorheadache.ca

I used to have the Comatose Until I Croak Demo tape, and remember it also included a very tiny photocopy of their song lyrics.

Senile Decay ---- imagine a very punky Motorhead, or a hardcore band similar to early Dr,Know.
It is heavy bass-driven, and the singer on the demo tape sounds EXACTLY like Schmier from Destruction.
Gregg had the most piercing / trebley guitar tone out of any band I ever heard... it is like a needle or a knife, it is that sharp.

Here is something I grabbed off facebook years ago. Too bad it was scanned at a very low pixel rate.
Probably was from either Intense zine #2 or #3.

Editor Dave Petritic stopped making them when he went off to become a tattoo artist.
No idea if any were made after #4, get it here

Nick Popovic - Bass
Wade McKiver - Drums
Greg Saffert (R.I.P. 1995) - Guitars
George Morgado - Vocals (I think George quit the band before they would ever perform live onstage. I was told the reason back then why he quit, but forgot what it was.).

RIP Greg & Colin.
Senile Decay's live singer, Colin O'Shea, died end of June 2015.
A few years ago Colin, and Hardcore Dave (Dave McLeod), tried getting a band together, but it didn't work out for some reason.

Ontario regulation bans random carding by police


The Canadian Press  
Posted: Mar 22, 2016

Ontario has released its final regulations to ban police from randomly stopping people to collect personal information, a practice known as carding or street checks.
The regulations, which were first posted last October for public comment, set out what the government calls "clear and consistent rules" for voluntary police-public interactions.
Race is prohibited from being any part of a police officer's reason for attempting to collect someone's identifying information.
The new rules were announced this morning by Yasir Naqvi, Ontario's community safety and correctional services minister.
​"Police officers cannot collect your information based on the way you look or the neighbourhood you live in," said Naqvi, who touted the rules as the "first right-based framework surrounding police interactions in Ontario's history."
Starting Jan. 1, 2017, police must tell people they have a right not to talk with them, and refusing to co-operate or walking away cannot then be used as reasons to compel information.
However, police can gather personal information during routine traffic stops, when someone is being arrested or detained, or when a search warrant is executed. The new rules will also not apply to police undercover operations.
The Liberal government said it wanted to ban arbitrary stops after hearing from too many people of colour and aboriginal men and women, who said the Human Rights Code was being ignored by police who stopped them for no apparent reason.

Police chiefs must review interactions

Under the new regulations, police must offer a written record of any interactions with the public, including their name and badge number, along with information on how to contact the Independent Police Review Director.
All identifying information that is collected by officers will have to be submitted within 30 days for review by the local chief of police. At least once a year, the chiefs will have to conduct a detailed review of a random sample of entries in their database to verify it was collected in compliance with the regulation.
Chiefs must also issue an annual public report on the number of attempted collections of personal information, the sex, age and race of the individuals stopped, and the neighbourhoods where the information was collected.
The government is also promising a roundtable of experts to advise the Ontario Police College on the development of new training for officers on racism, bias awareness and discrimination. It said all officers will be trained by Jan. 1.
Naqvi said he did not have an estimate about the cost of bringing in the new regulations.
"I don't think you can put a cost on protecting individual rights," he said.
Will Hamilton Police explain plummeting street checks?
