Those cops don't have clue what Khalistan is.

They thought it was meant to be an ethnic festival and we're flying the flag for good community relations.

Guys, by now everyone has heard of the CRA tax scam in Canada. The fraudsters were traced to India. Pretty serious swindle! But look at the comments to the CBC story. Some nasty stuff. Many of them are Paks and Chinese, but the majority seem to be Caucasian or of other ethnicities. I suppose the haters will use any excuse to hit out at India. Still, the sheer number of vicious remarks are upsetting. Should we expect this sort of stuff on a regular basis?

You mean some criminal will commit some crime online? You bet.

No offence, but what's the point of asking such rhetorical questions and hyperventilating over it? I don't know what this scam is about (hasn't made it to the news cycle here afaik), so can't speak to what some news portal comments say. Even if I did, I am sure these comments are at the same daily mail level of "they took aid from us and built statues!!" So, waste of time.

Came to this thread thinking some genuine news has come up. Sigh.

^
There wasn't a single mention of aid to India, among the hundreds of displayed comments. There were remarks like "India=scam", "Nuke them", "Use the money( from the fraud) to build toilets", and so on. The CRA( Canadian Revenue Agency) tax scam was big news in Canada. In the US, it was scamsters posing as IRS officers, demanding back taxes that were supposedly owed. I think it's fair to pose the question as to whether a major scam like this will negatively affect India.
