Counter-Insurgency Paper Argues that Native Resistance Could Bring Canada to a Standstill

Montreal Counter-info has published a video detailing the weak points of extractive industry, transportation, and infrastructure – taken straight from a counter-insurgency paper concerned with the threat of indigenous uprising in Canada.

“Observant individuals can easily identify many such critical bottlenecks across Canada. They share several common characteristics:
• they are of immediate and significant value to businesses and governments;
• they concentrate valued resources or essential economic functions;
• they are located at the intersection of related transportation systems, thus allowing protesters to use their scarce resources efficiently;
• most are far from major national security resources and forces, thus complicating the deployment and maintenance of these forces;
• most are close to First Nations communities that would likely be neutral if not active supporters of insurgents and would provide safe-havens and logistical support to main participants;
• all are high profile assets the disruption of which would attract (for governments) troublesome national and international political and media attention; and
• all are vulnerable (i.e., value multiplied by the ease of disruption).”
