Lac Megantic train disaster hoax

likes this

Cluesforum.info now has a thread on what looks like one of the bigger hoaxes to hit Canada in recent memory. Some great posts I’ll highlight here:

Anonjedi2:

“Canadian Prime Minister Harper, right, surveys the scene Sunday, July 7, 2013 in Lac Megantic, Quebec,

bad photoshopping job

as firefighters continue to spray derailed tanker cars. A runaway train derailed Saturday causing explosions of railway cars carrying crude oil and destroyed part of the downtown area of Lac Megantic.”

“surveys the scene” ? What is he doing other than posing for a photo? In what world do firefighters let civilians that close to a fire while they are spraying to contain it just a few yards away?

Steve O:

First the numbers a 72 car freight train (7+2 = 9) parked 11 kms from the city center.

Speed Laden

The 9/11 stories never end.

Osama Bin Laden was stopped by the police for speeding 11 YEARS ago but Pakistani police let him go, secret papers reveal

via Pakistani report: Osama bin Laden wore a COWBOY HAT around the house to avoid detection; he and his youngest wife thought the kill raid’s noises were just a rainstorm | Mail Online.

Another completely unbelievable speeding story:

Driver nabbed going 225 km/h on Ontario highway – Toronto – CBC News

A driver allegedly reeking of marijuana was arrested by Ontario Provincial Police after an officer caught his car racing at a blistering 225 km/h — more than twice the posted speed limit on Highway 401.

The OPP stopped the driver on Saturday morning around 8:22 a.m. in Mississauga, after he was spotted heading eastbound at Dixon Road on the 401.

An officer with the OPP’s highway safety division was in the area when he saw the car roar past.

I know this stretch of road. It’s the biggest bottleneck on the entire 800km roadway. Even on a Saturday morning it’s busy. To go this speed would require flying over the traffic or weaving at such a rate you’d be flipped over each turn of the wheel.
