"It's a disturbing film," said Peter Piper, head of Moore4, the television channel that will telecast the film in England in October.
"It raises questions about the effects of Canadian foreign policy and particularly the moonbat war on the war on terror," said Piper, who denied criticism that the film made an anti-Canadian or anti-Liberal political statement. "It's a fairly attention-grabbing premise, but behind that is a serious and thought-provoking film."In the film, A large region of downtown Toronto is obliterated by a nuclear explosion, while the city is inundated with attendees of a controversial film festival. The bomb is planted in the city, during a peace demonstration, by a naturalized Syrian born Muslim terrorist, given political sanctuary in the western country. The explosion occurs in October 2007.
Piper said the explosion scene, which comes about 10 minutes into the 90-minute film, is a mushrooming glimpse rather than "a gratuitously lengthy gazing kind of scene." He said it was "very small in comparison to the blood and death we see fabricated every day, in the news, by Reuters cameramen in Lebanon."
"We know some people are going to be offended," Piper said. "But you always risk offending people when you open people's eyes to the way the world is. Sometimes the truth is a bit unpalatable."
