Political Police Probe Punks



This just out from the Toronto Star:
Anti-terror cops probed Ottawa punk band
May 21, 2008 04:30 AM

OTTAWA–All it takes to get noticed by Canada's top anti-terrorism team is a shocking band name and a provocative logo.

At least, that's the contention of The Suicide Pilots, a self-described "no-name punk band" based in Ottawa that promotes itself with a cartoon image of a plane swooping toward the Parliament Buildings.

Access to Information documents released by the band's lawyer yesterday show the RCMP's Integrated National Security Enforcement Team took a look at the group last year as a result of the band's outspoken and politically active drummer, Jeffrey Monaghan.

Monaghan was alleged last spring to have leaked the environmental plan of the Conservative government, and was marched in handcuffs by the RCMP out of his contract job at Environment Canada.

He was never charged with anything, but his musical tastes, including a song titled "Harper Youth," quickly attracted state scrutiny.

"Subject is a self-described anarchist and drummer in a punk band that compares (Prime Minister Stephen) Harper to Hitler," says an RCMP report dated two days after Monaghan's May 9, 2007 arrest.

The band's MySpace page depicts a "9/11 type drawing showing an airplane crashing into the Parliament; there is also anti-Harper songs from the band," says an assistance request from the national security team to the Tech Crime unit.

The documents show that the force's integrated cyber-analysis team, the commercial crime unit and national security team were all involved.

The Canadian Security Intelligence Service was apprised. "Advise CSIS of our findings," states a timeline for May 29.

The last entry is dated Sept. 8 and is marked "NFAR, CH" – RCMP jargon for No Further Action Required, Cancelled Here.

The band, in a statement, said the investigation is indicative of "Harper's `War on Terror' gone mad."

The RCMP declined to comment.
