I have no problem with Americans... but I do have a problem with the burning of our flag; we just don't do that kind of shit. I don't give a fuck who wins a hockey game - that's just wrong.

New York mob torched anthem singer's Maple Leaf


Bruce Arthur
National Post

Days after being cheered as he sang the Canadian and American anthems before an NHL playoff game in Toronto, Robert Pomakov watched, horrified, as unruly New York hockey fans burned his Canadian flag in the parking lot of Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.

Mr. Pomakov, an opera singer, saw both his Canadian and his Toronto Maple Leaf flags torn from his car and set on fire by a crowd chanting "U.S.A! U.S.A!" in the moments before Sunday's Game 6 between the Leafs and the New York Islanders.

"We lost four of our soldiers and they were basically defending these idiots," said an outraged Mr. Pomakov. "If patriotism is what drives these people and their ignorance, then I am ashamed to have our soldiers defending them."

Four Canadian soldiers were killed in Afghanistan on April 18 when a U.S. fighter plane mistakenly bombed them.

Mr. Pomakov, 21, is working on his masters of opera degree at the world-renowned Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia, from where he drove to Long Island for Sunday's game at the Coliseum, which is named in honour of U.S. war veterans.

He and fellow Torontonian Patrick Magee, also 21, decked themselves in Team Canada and Leafs jerseys and attached one regular-size Canadian flag and one Maple Leafs flag to broomsticks on their rental car. After being heckled as they pulled into the parking lot before the game, they could only look on as both flags were set alight.

"I was just shocked," he said. "There's a line that needs to be drawn, and this was so far across. You can't believe that you're watching the Canadian flag burn.

"There wasn't much we could do. There were a lot more of them than there were of us."

Mr. Pomakov felt the Americans' treatment of the Canadian flag was disgraceful.

Mr. Pomakov said the flags incident has not soured him on life in the United States. Still, he was pleased to see Toronto's Game 7 win on Tuesday, which set up a second-round Battle of Ontario series with the Ottawa Senators that begins tonight in Toronto.

Whatever the feelings of Torontonians toward the seat of federal government, or of Ottawans toward the seat of national commerce, the anthem is quite unlikely to be booed during the series.

They should be held very responsible for it. This is at the worst time for Canada, when American idiots bombed us in Afghanistan. Precision bombs my ass.

People burn american flags all the time... boo fucking hoo.

Also you need to do research on what happened with the canadian bombing.... it wasnt a missle that went off target... the US jet saw a group of armed soldiers that were not recognized as allies... the pilot meant to hit that mass of people... the Canadians failed to announce their coordinates before conducting their mission which is a huge military no-no.... cause a mass of armed soldiers looks the same to an f-16... bad situation but could have been avoided.

Yes, but Canada has, honestly, done nothing to offend America. We have signed NAFTA (a stupid move), we have taken part in military defence plans, we have allowed 25% duties to be slapped on lumber that AMERICANS WANT TOO CHEAP. Shit happens, eh?

As far as I can see, it wasn't that Canadians didnt' follow procedure, it's that they didnt' follow AMERICAN proceedure. You aren't the goddamned world, you know. There are countries outside of those piddly borders.

that "procedure" has been military procedure since the late 10th century. It's called the "wingman" concept. If one person or group goes somewhere they inform allies so military actions will work around it. In midevil time generals would announce troop movements to allied forces so when they saw a big mass of people on the horizon they new to expect friendly forces coming and not to attack.

And one of the reasons we tax your lumbers is because your country can get away with things we cant. Same situation with wheat... your country can use cheap pesticides our country cant... so its cheaper to buy wheat from you and have it shipped than it is to buy our own.... in order to keep the working class of america up we have to tax it to equate to ensure our unemployment rate stays down.

That's simple economics... you take care of your country before you worry about another.... if we wanted to be picky we could lift the tax on your wheat and say you can't use this pesticide.... then all of your farmers would go completely broke meeting our standards.

Most of our 'farmers' are American agrifood companies now. It's just recycled money from foreign ownerships. (and yes, the Canadian government is the one to blame, I know) But our environmental adherances are quite more in line with those of the world than USA, so don't get down my back about pesticides. We didn't fuck the Kyoto treaty simply because we want to drill in Alaska and bend over for the oil companies.

ummm the identifying we're talking about is calling on a radio to the operations headquarters and saying "Canadian Army Platoon blah blah blah will be heading to X coordinates" and then the command post distributes that out to all the troops in the region.... so when an f-16 flies over that area they call it in and they say "those are allies"

I don't believe we should be over there until we're more equipped; full agreement there.

pesticides have nothing to do with the enviroment in this argument you dolt. Our FDA won't allow us to use certain pesticides because its thought to be harmful to humans. We dont put you in check on it because of NAFTA's piece of shit loopholes.

I know a fair fucking bit about NAFTA, retard; I've studied it. Pesticides are a health and ENVIRONMENTAL issue.
NAFTA loopholes are hurting us more, overall. For example, we now have to have certain types of gasoline that are horrid to human health and the environment simply because NAFTA courts believe that USA profit is more reasonable than health.

This might be off-topic somewhat, but since the Canadian troops are under U.S. command, wasn't it up to them to make sure the F-16 pilot knew what troops where where? and even then, its entirly possible that the message got lost somewhere in a paper shuffle, and the National Guard never got the message. Don't go blaming it on the Canadians right away, at least wait until one of the billion different inquires figures something out.

this is how it is....

in command are generals from all the countries participating.... they all have individuals working all chains of command. An order is given from the command. When prepared the platoon departs, they call in their military action... there is no paperwork they simply didnt coordinate and it wasnt known who was in the area. Canadian troops arent under US command. The canadian military says they must report their actions.... its almost like air traffic control but for military action. If a blip shows up on the radar and they arent identified they are considered hostile.

The Canadian investigation wrapped up last week, results will be out eventually.
