On local radio there they say the death toll could rise once they get through it all, I doubt they'd suggest the possibility unless they knew it.

I mentioned that earlier - there were house fires that need to be investigated - 5 buildings that were set on fire.

Queen Elizabeth II is sending her condolences to the families, friends and colleagues of the victims of Nova Scotia’s mass shooting.


“Prince Philip and I have been deeply saddened by the appalling events in Nova Scotia,” the statement from the Royal Family reads.
...
“I … pay tribute to the bravery and sacrifice of the officers from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and other police services who selflessly responded to these devastating attacks, and to the emergency services who are supporting those who have been injured and affected.”

The Queen concluded the statement by saying her thoughts and prayers are with the people of Nova Scotia and all Canadians at this time.

BIBLE HILL, N.S. — Out of all the angst and darkness following Sunday’s rampaging massacre that began in Portapique, the tale of one small victim offers a glimmer of hope.
Her name is Zoe, a four-legged, tail-wagging shooting survivor, and thanks to the efforts of a compassionate RCMP officer and the skills of a Bible Hill veterinarian, she is on the mend.

Zoe is a nine-year-old miniature pinscher and the family pet of Greg and Jamie Blair who were gunned down during the rampage.

Zoe was also shot in the hind quarter but, when discovered, she was rushed to the Central Nova Animal Hospital in Bible Hill by Const. Rodney MacDonald.

“She is doing surprising well,” said Dr. Kim Babineau, on Monday

She will go to another family member.

A pilot did a little something for the area recovering from the tragedy.

It has been mentioned he bought police cars at auction - nothing unusual there.

Wortman had recently bought two used police cars -- which McCormack described as "mountie cars" -- and kept them behind a clinic where he worked, he told the station.
"I never asked him about it," McCormack said.

Why would anyone forget it? One was killed and one was shot. Another tried to help and was killed.

Kudos to the vet for treating the dog free of charge.

Goulet, a 54-year-old from Shubenacadie, N.S., loved her German shepherd, Ginger, and Ellie, a 10-year-old chihuahua.
A Facebook post from David Butler on Monday shows he and his wife, Amelia, curled up with the dogs after "loss, sadness, trauma and devastation" spread through their family.

Ginger was shot twice Sunday, Butler wrote, but the RCMP "took extra care" and sent her to the Metro Animal Emergency Clinic in Dartmouth.

The veterinarians there helped treat two gunshot wounds — one in her face and one directly through her mid-back.
Butler said the vet completed all procedures free of charge "and provided the best care imaginable. Which we are extremely grateful for."

Amazing the pets survived and will end up with loving family members. Not surprised the vets did it free of charge but community members were stepping up to cover the costs as well.

I fully expect someone could be in lot of hot water for not activating emergency alert about active shooter.
Just maybe some of those killed would have made different choices.

That will be part of the investigation and I'm sure in hindsight there will be a lot of people feeling really guilty and remorseful and that's unfortunate when all were doing the best they could in the moment.

Leather was asked twice to explain why the province’s alert system, which experts say uses radio, television and cellular networks to warn residents of serious threats to health and safety, including “active law enforcement responses,” wasn’t used.

“We have relied on (Twitter) because of the instantaneous manner that we can communicate. We have thousands of followers in Nova Scotia and felt that it was a superior way to communicate this ongoing threat,” he said.
