USA, over 15 years between 1940–1956 approximately 33 bombs placed by New York’s notorious Mad Bomber, George Metesky, injures 15 people in his protests against the excesses of a city utility agency. Canada, September 9, 1949 in a scheme to collect his wife’s life insurance a man plants a bomb on an airplane killing 23. The list of sadly could go on and on but the numbers are representative of the destructive power (and ambitions) of a single individual or group at the time.
