I was thinking, even if the RCMP put out an alert, who would think to be looking for what looks like a police car? :135:


THAT should have been included in the alert. In fact because of the fact he was dressed as a Mountie and was operating a vehicle that looked like an RMCP cruiser, that information was VERY IMPORTANT.

The RCMP, as they have in the past, blew it completely.

The RCMP haven't conducted a press conference yet, just a press release. Will be very interesting how the RCMP spin this most recent debacle.

One could have if the RCMP had released that information. They only released the alert on Twitter ????? and in that alert failed to mention a teeny weeny fact that the suspect was dress like a Mountie and driving a vehicle that looked like an RCMP cruiser.

Sub par in the extreme. But it will slide, seems the media need to maintain their symbiotic relationship with the RCMP at all costs, heck it was only what 22 dead ?

The title of this article is pretty much off the mark, but a scary thing to go through either way.

Just confirmed by the R.C.M.P. that the madman had no firearms license.

Tell us again, Mr. Trudeau, why we need more laws when killers don't follow the law in the first place.

That is true. i was just coming back to correct my post to say the headline is a bit off because it was only a 9 month ban.

Millions of people aren't banned from owning firearms but don't have a firearms license.

Again, murderers don't care what the law is. Only people like licensed firearms owners care what the law is. More laws don't stop murderers, never have, never will.

It is more than unfortunate and I feel for those involved and the stress they are under. Read a dispatcher's report on the blame game and I feel for them as well. They are all feeling horrible about it.

"I ran so hard into the woods. I laid there for at least about four hours hoping and praying that the police would come," he said.

Gunshots and explosions from the fires raged all around him. He didn't dare bring out his cellphone, he said, fearing the light would attract the shooter.

He stared up at the sky, "freezing to death" for hours.

"To walk up and find my brother dead, and to be hunted by this fella that killed all these people, I'll be traumatized for the rest of my life," he said. "I'm having a really hard time with it."


Where were the cops? Hate to say it, but if I'm this guy, I'm wishing I was packing, so at least I could defend myself, rather than waiting hours for cops who should have been there within 15 - 20 minutes to respond to this guy. Four hours to show up to a 9-11 call while people are being blown away? There just is no excuse for that.

At a news conference Wednesday, RCMP Chief Supt. Chris Leather said police received a 911 call of a firearms incident in Portapique, N.S., at 10:26 p.m. Saturday. They soon determined there had been a homicide but did not realize the suspect had left the area they were searching until 8:02 the next morning, he said.

He said the EMO contacted the RCMP at 10:15 a.m. to ask about sending an emergency message, and police were crafting a message when the suspect was killed almost two hours later.

Marcia R. Seitz-Ehler, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Consulate, said the consulate's emailed alert warning of a shooter in Portapique and advising people to remain at home with their doors locked was drawn from information on the Nova Scotia RCMP Twitter account.

"It is our protocol — when emergencies occur — to alert U.S. citizens in the area to the situation," she said. She did not immediately respond to an inquiry about what time the U.S. alert was sent. The first RCMP tweet about an active shooter was transmitted at 8:02 a.m. Sunday.

I'm sure people will judge but it would be nice if people waited to hear the facts first. Not too many do that though.

Sounds like things were pretty crazy. RCMP officers showing up and shooting at a fire hall? What was going on??
