Description: "01/29/1967: An explosion at 4:08 a.m. blew in the front door and shattered the windows of the two-storey wood and brick Yugoslavian Consulate in Toronto. Windows of other buildings as far as 10 blocks away were also blown out by the force of the explosion. The bomb consisted of ten sticks of dynamite wired together, and was thought by police to have been thrown at the door from a passing car. Total damage to the Consulate building was estimated at $5,000. Attributed to anti-communist Yugoslavians. Coincided with the 21st anniversary of the Yugoslavian constitution. Exploded in front of the building. The blast smashed windows in nearby homes, apartments, and businesses. Gauged a hole three feet long in a flagstone sidewalk, blew out the Consulates window. Fascists and Nazis were blamed."
