Singh, Jaggi

Canada’s favourite anarkid. He made a name for himself by getting pepper sprayed at Vancouver’s APEC Summit in 1997, and kept it by repeating the mantra “Globalisation tastes like McDonald’s, looks like Disney, and smells like shit.” Almost expelled from Toronto’s ultra-Catholic St. Michael’s High School for having a balanced opinion on abortion, he is now CBC’s go-to guy for any protest over 500 people. He openly espouses a ‘diversity of tactics’, which means trying to do something meaningful to prevent the continuing rape of the developing world. He’s one the few people on the Canadian left who actually owns a copy of the North American Free Trade Agreement even though anarchists do not believe in ‘owning’ anything. David Banerjee
