We couldn't believe it when this story started breaking yesterday.  It's not that there isn't any crime in Canada, it's just that it is so rare to have gun violence let alone this kind of senseless, mass killing take place.  Truly disturbing.

Our deepest condolences go out to all of the families and people involved/affected down East.  Such a burden with everything else that is going on ... so sad!

Thanks Maggie.  Yes all is OK except for the many others hurting.  The details will come out over the next few days;but when one of the Mounties are killed in their line of duty there is much grieving that takes place by many.  These are the people that keep us all safe and the people you want to see if in trouble on the highways etc.  

This fellow that created all the mayhem was a simple, well like fellow who was a denturist with a hobby of collecting police related items. He was into motorcycles and was a skier.  So that sounds pretty level headed and normal to me.   I think the greatest question people are asking is "why?"  The motive hasn't been shared with the public at this point.  As a denturist he had a reputation of being very kind and helpful to people who needed his services.  So all the more reason for the question. "Why?"

The count of the dead including the female Mountie and the shooter is 17 at this point.  It is almost expected that more will die or will be found to have died from yesterday's events.  There are multiple crime scenes over a 50 kms distance.  So the police will be really  busy sorting this out.

Hwy 102 is one of the main highways in Nova Scotia.  It was along this highway that he was finally stopped after about 12 hours from the time he started the killing.  The home to where the Mounties were called on a gun complaint is where they found several people dead outside of the home as well as more inside.

This link should provide details as they become available.  https://www.news957.com/

The virus is hitting a seniors' home hard in Halifax right now.  About 51 with a positive test result and at least 7 have died so far.  Times are sad in Canada's Ocean Playground right now.

Like you say ... this type of crime is something we don't generally see here.  The area where it started is like a "Cottage Country" of Nova Scotia.  Maybe 100 year round residents and up to 250 for the summer months.   There was also something like a scene out of Lethal Weapon on the way towards Halifax.  No real details yet but there was a gun fight with police and 2 cruisers were set on fire too.  The final conclusion happened about another 15 minutes farther towards Halifax.  Details will be interesting.

Latest tonight  Joan, they say that 18 + the shooter and maybe more dead; because there are a number of burnt out (to the ground) homes and they have yet to search these for bodies.

A long investigation in front of the Mounties now.

This is a huge tragedy, and a good example of evil fully taking a person over.  What a shame.  Prayers and condolences to the families and friends of these victims.  I donít envy the RCMP for the investigation ahead of them.

Wow, very sad. Don't know how this could have been prevented as the lone shooter is a law enforcement nightmare. Wonder if he had a history of mental illness like my neighbor who shot up a local grocery. In the USA it is very difficult to force treatment on adults.

Well it has been a very sad time here for the past few days.  The local news spoke with the Premier of Nova Scotia last night.  The news anchor asked him how he is doing.  That almost brought him to tears as he replied " ...this is a lot of death..... "  He, as most government officials, holds daily updates on the Covid-19 status in the area. Currently there are  10  Covid -19  related deaths here; but the virus had become a serious problem in a large seniors' home.  This is eating at him and now the weekend shootings by a single lunatic is just about too much to handle. 

The death toll from the shooter now stands at 23, including the shooter.

These are links for more on this story.  https://atlantic.ctvnews.ca/

Well as people were becoming used to this terrible and senseless event and realizing the extent of all the hurt between this and the virus related deaths, the news came of a Canadian forces helicopter going down in the Ionian sea off Greece.  Six are to have died in this crash.  The ship from which the helicopter was flying is based in Halifax.   The first recovered was a female sailor who is from Cole Harbour which is the same community as the Mountie that was killed a couple of weeks ago lived.  This is also home to Sydney Crosby.  Two of the others on the helicopter were from Nova Scotia towns too.  It is not yet been told what went wrong and took the helicopter down.  Being a relatively new machine there will be a detailed study into the crash, no doubt.  There are still people missing so mark another tragedy on the calendar for Nova Scotia.

These kinds of thing are always tragic, but especially so when they involve people from your own community.  Prayers for the families of the victims.

The tragedies continue here, I'm afraid.

A couple of years ago a young child fell beneath the wheels of a Christmas Lights parade float and died.  These parades have been cancelled since.

A year after that the home of people that moved her from Syria had their home burn to the ground.  That tragedy took the lives of their 7 children.   Oldest about 15 and the youngest near 3 years old.  The father is still in hospital as he was severely burned.  It is looking that he will survive.  

And so far 40 of the 46 of the Covid19 deaths here have been in the same nursing home.  

Then we had the nut case shooting 22 people + an unborn baby.

And last week it was the helicopter in the Ionian Sea. That killed 6 people.

And now this.  This one will get you, if the others haven't.  A 3 year old boy is missing and now the search is now considered a recovery effort.  He was visiting his grandmother who was distracted by her dog.  They were in the back yard of their home which backs on a fast moving brook which feeds a faster moving river which empties into the Bay of Fundy.  When she turned back to the child .... he was gone !!!

They found his rubber boots the first night, Wednesday night, of searching but last night brought no new clues.  It has been at freezing temperatures the past few nights. By the way, this is taking place in the same area as the shooter did most of his harm.

So, if you are a praying person ... say some for this family who is hurting really badly.

We are all wondering what is coming next for Nova Scotia.

Seems when it rains, it pours.  And now this child is missing, and the outcome doesnít look favorable.  I can only Imagine how his grandma feels about this.  Letís all hope that things start taking a turn for the better soon.  Sad times in NS.

Not good. Too much for such a small area. Things have to take a turn but the loss of such a young child is just tragic.
