Canada Preps for G8 Summit, which is being held at a remote mountain retreat in the Canadian Rockies. Canada is spenign half a billion dollars on the summit, mostly on security, but they’ve also bought off the local First Nations tribe to withdraw their permission to allow protesters to camp on their reservation land. A no-fly zone over the summit site will be enforced by fighter jets and surface-to-air missiles. Canada is adeptly using anti-terrorist sentiment to preempt the anti-globalisation movement’s making this its first muscle-flexing exercise in the post-Sept 11 world. Alternet
