A Bomb threat at CANFAR?

29 Nov

What is the world coming to????

Hi Everyone,

I was volunteering at CANFAR.ca  (AIDS Foundation) earlier tonight  for their big annual gala fund raiser, and the after party at the ROM was canceled due to a bomb in the building.  My first concern was for my staff and guest at my location. everyone  is OK but then I got thinking about what would have happened if we went to the ROM and the bomb was detonated?  thousands of people  hurt or killed because  someone wants  to make a point… :S  I cant understand why killing others would make a point?  all it does is kill people, and take away from whatever your point was.

No one like a bully and even less people like cowards, and people who plant bombs are the lowest form of both.

I am happy to be alive tonight and grateful that other people who I don’t know are doing things  which allowed all of us to be safe. THANK YOU for doing what you did, it made a difference in the world, even if it was just my world!!!

We heard the news and we were all grateful that no one was hurt and continued to celebrate and raise money, make donations, have a fantastic  time, and do what we came there to do.  Thank you to everyone that volunteered, donated their time, skill, effort and energy to making the Liss Gallery CAFAR event the most amazing one evening EVER!!!

My two cents ~Ricardo

    The bomb threat was supposedly ART. Some very stupid punk studying at the Ontario College of Art want to be creative and express his artistic side by fucking up an important fund raiser, and scared the crap out of a lot of people .
    He and the school have obviously lost touch with what art is and this bomb installation was not art but a sign of a really sick and full of himself punk ass kid. He’s no artist!
