Quarries and such

I bet the Soviets had quarries. In fact, I know they did. And when they were finished with them, they used many of them as toxic waste dumps.
That said, I don't know why the CBC thinks six Communists protesting at Queen's Park is worth a story on its web site. Some of the Mohawks -- and that group apparently doesn't ionclude the chief and band council -- have an issue with the government and, it appears, with the owner of the Deseronto quarry. There are also poverty-related problems in Canadian Indian reserves. Does that mean the Mohawks' problems would be solved by destroying capitalism? I doubt it. And, judging from what I've seen at Akwasasne, Kahnasatake,and Deseronto, I bet most of the Mohawks doubt it, too.
