The Canadian authorities are reportedly trying to shut down "Ark Two," Canada's largest private survival bunker in Dufferin County, Ontario, Canada. The bunker was featured recently in End Of The World -- How To Survive Armageddon.
Bruce Beach, according to Conspiracy Watch, has been anticipating the end of the world for nearly 50 years. He built the Ark Two underground bunker in 1980 to survive a nuclear apocalypse.
According to Global News, he built it by burying 42 school buses under two feet of concrete and 14 feet of earth on his property, about 100 km north of Toronto.
Beach's underground bunker is known widely as Canada's largest private survival shelter, capable of housing 500 people. According to Beach, it is designed specifically as shelter to protect survivors against nuclear fallout.
The 10,000 sq/ft bunker is equipped with generators, water pumps, canned food, and just about everything survivalists anticipate they would need to survive a nuclear attack or a zombie apocalypse.
But the fire department is now trying to shut down the facility, saying it is a hazard. The fire department wants the 35-year-old structure shut down permanently ahead of the "Annual Preppers Meet," scheduled to take place on Beach's Dufferin County property, out of concern for the safety of hundreds of expected summit attendees.
According to Global News, Che Bodhi, organizer of the preppers' summit, describes it as the biggest prepper event in Canada, which will offer enthusiasts tips from surviving the zombie apocalypse to surviving in a wilderness, and most disturbing to animal welfare activists, "dispatching and skinning rabbits."
Bodhi appears to agree with the fire authorities the shelter might not be safe for people to go in. He is ready to comply with the wishes of the fire authorities to have Beach's facility shut down, according to Global News.
"When you go inside the bunker for the first time, it is a different planet, it's like you're on Mars... When you hear about this concept of 42 school buses underground, to fathom it is nothing compared to going in and actually seeing it... It's crazy in there. Unfortunately, we can't do that."But Beach is resisting the authorities and has promised to do all in his power to fight against the move to shut down the bunker.
His prepper supporters believe that the government is trying deliberately to pick a fight with survivalists. They argue that the facility was designed and built under the supervision of highly qualified structural engineers who have extensive experience building subway tunnels.
Beach traces the history of his conflict with the authorities to 2000, when the fire department ordered the shelter shut down due to alleged safety issues. But Beach claims he has since made recommended changes and that, currently, the structure is safe.
Preppers are watching the faceoff between Beach and the Canadian government, wondering why governments are targeting survivalists for attack.
According to the preppers' website Off Grid Survival, attacks by the "government-media complex" on "survivalists, patriots, and military Vets" are part of a grand conspiracy to demonize the American ethos of "self-reliance, patriotism and freedom."
"Self-reliance, Patriotism, and Freedom: three things that were once valued in this country, have now become dirty words that make you a danger to the greater good.The doomsday conspiracy theory blog, All News Pipeline, argues that the latest move by the Canadian authorities at a time that a survivalist summit is scheduled to hold on the grounds of Beach's 35-year-old Ark Two bunker is evidence of an NWO globalist plot to attack survivalists by targeting a site revered by survivalists worldwide.
Who would have thought that our country – a country that was founded upon individual freedom and self-reliance – would one day turn into a place where over half of all Americans receive at least one form of government assistance?"
"Is this another incident of government overreach and a side-effect of the NWO globalists demand for the depopulation of the masses of good people in the world? Why is there such a concerted effort to hamper the efforts of those who are providing a way for private citizens to 'survive Armageddon?' Certainly, Beach isn't the only survivalist under attack under Agenda 21 and the depopulation agenda of the elitists, who hope to kill off 90% of the world's population."But meanwhile, the police have stated that they do not have the authority to shut down the bunker and that the fire department authorities would have to act on their own.
