Not going to see his face on the Concordia ads, I guess

It turns out the guy accused of plotting to bomb subway tunnels in New York is a Concordia University grad, which is about as surprising as learning that Michael Moore has a slow metabolism. You always suspect it and aren't particularly surprised when you read about it.

According to news reports, he attended Concordia from around 1995 to 2002. Which means that he was a student when the Concordia Student Union published this handbook.

The "Uprising" handbook included calls to burn the Canadian flag on July 1st ("Anti-Canada day"), instructions on how to defy police, and a rationale for stealing as a form of "empowerment."
