Neo-Nazis suspected in Calgary firebombs
by UPI

CALGARY, Alberta - Police in Calgary, Alberta, suspect white supremacists are behind two fire-bombings this month in the city, the Calgary Sun reported Friday.

Both attacks involved Molotov cocktails being thrown at inhabited houses, Detective Brad Weinberger told the newspaper.

In the first incident, he said there were three people at home when the bomb smashed through a window, he said.

"There was no fire internally but the potential for huge damage and loss of life was there," the detective said.

Hours later, another home with a family of six at home was targeted, the report said. It struck a wall and burned a fence and patio furniture. One of the house's occupants, 29-year-old anti-racism activist Bonnie Collins said her work in standing up to white supremacists provoked the attack.

She said white-supremacist groups in the city have become more active and belligerent lately and have a rally planned for March 21, a demonstration she vowed to protest.

"They're getting stronger, they're showing their flags," she told the Sun. "There's a lot of kids drawn to it -- they're looking for something and they find acceptance with these groups."
