Description: "02/19/1986: A beer bottle containing gunpowder, with bolts wrapped around as shrapnel and with a battery connected to a flash-bulb as an improvised initiator for the charge, was placed at the front door of the Canadian Immigration Centre in Surrey, B.C. The device failed to function properly, and thus no injuries or damage resulted from its only partial ignition. A note was found ""protesting the policies of the Immigration department and saying third world people were being 'dumped' into Canada."""
