What is the current political situation in bangkok. I understand that the Canadian government is warning against non-essential travel to bangkok because of recent politcal demonstrations and possible large demonstrations on June 24. Anybody have any info on this?

The situation is best described as "uncertain". The former PM is supposedly returning to Thailand some time next week to face fraud charges, and there is a significant chance of large protests in Bangkok at that time. That said, I'd say it's highly unlikely that largescale mayhem is on the cards, and the Candian govt is probably being pretty conservative in their warnings.
Also, at no stage have these protests been directed at tourists -- it's an entirely local affair.
2Bangkok.com is a good source of news summaries regarding the issues.
