These criminals are extremely physically dangerous and are geniuses of manipulation who are bad. Corrections Canada has been quoted in their press release regarding the public transport of these dangerous people, ‘…we have never made a statement like this before but due to the risks involved the public should be aware that the Corrections Canada C.E.O. has admitted to being scared.’ To limit the time these dangerous people will be in transport, the motorcade will have to drive on the highway between Toronto and North York around 6pm on Wednesday, April 4. Life of a Craphead are also scheduled to concurrently host the AGYU’s Performance Bus and have been quoted as saying ‘There must be an error as we have not been hired to move those bad guys.'”
