A disturbing website in Montreal of anarchist activists

One of the most recent victims of these far-left activists is former Cabinet Minister and Conservative Senator Michael Fortier. The latter, who has been a vice president at the helm of RBC since October 2010, saw two personal cars burning in front of his private home on the night of May 4-5.

With glaciers melting, droughts, fires and famine spreading, Mr. Fortier might believe his money and connections would save him, his children, and his grandchildren. But the angry will know the names of the great leaders. He must understand that no one is safe in this messCan we read a written claim posted on the Montreal Counter-Information.

Fortier, who does not wish to comment on the incident, appears to have been targeted because RBC is one of the major creditors of the TC Energy’s 760 km gas pipeline. The far left anarchist activists oppose the construction of the pipeline The Coastal Gaslink pipeline that crosses the Wetʼsuwetʼen region on its way.

[…] There is no doubt that Mr. Fortier is satisfied with his boss’ decision to continue funding the Coastal GasLink pipeline (or any other sloppy project funded by RBC).we write in this same text.

SPVM investigators met Michael Fortier and recovered footage from the security cameras in the private residence.

In the crosshairs of the police for years

The Montreal City Police Department (SPVM) and the Sûreté du Québec (SQ) are concerned with the activities of the Montréal Contre-Information site, which has claimed responsibility for numerous arson and vandalism for years. Railways in recent years.

So far, our information leads us to believe that these militants, who present themselves as anarchists, do not operate in a particular form of grouping. If they are organized in any way under one entity, we will have information about thema police source commented on SQ.

Remember, they opened an investigation in July 2020 when Vince Parente’s personal car was set on fire at his St Therese home. The latter was an advisor to the Deputy Minister of Public Security for the Montreal Region. The case remains unresolved to this day.

During the same summer, in 2020, dozens of SPVM patrol cars, parked behind a police station in the Plateau Mont-Royal neighborhood, were destroyed by fires that were also deliberate. Anarchists claimed this gesture in the anti-information Montreal.

To be very careful, we suspect that they are people with common interests exchanging data privately in forums or secure applications on smart devices. Without necessarily knowing each other, they decided to take action before disappearingadds another investigator who was interested in the small group that runs the site.

Website hosted in Iceland

After tracking website activities, the managers behind this active message board know very well what they are doing. It is clear that they have knowledge of security checks after having eluded the police for a long time. They are careful. They only log the IP address of their whereabouts. They also clean up their online activityexplains a cybersecurity specialist.For a few years, the site has been on the Rise Up platform which is a hosting site, based in Germany, that provides services to activist groups.

These administrators will have the ability to move their server location within a few hours. A few years ago, they were hosted in France when SPVM tried to get information from Montreal, but to no avail.

In 2022, it is possible to commit the perfect crime with knowledge and discipline. Care must be taken. Then you never connect from an IP address wherever you are. And you also need to clean up your online activitiesMr. Matteo Decari adds.

For a few years, the site has been on the platform of Rise Up, a Germany-based hosting site that provides services to activist groups, explains the cybersecurity specialist.
