Where Saskatchewan Comes To Count

Saskatchewan’s lovable radio host asks: “What are you thinking and feeling about 1) our Canada today b) yesterday on the “Hill” and c) the cowardice and evil in our midst. Is Canada different today? How do we deal with terrorism and radicals?”

1) Worried the attack will be used as an excuse to make it harder to visit our public buildings.
b?) You mean 2)?
c) OK, we’ll stick with letters now. The cowardice and evil is refusing to deal with our fossil fuel addictions, and going to war to secure a source in the Middle East. How do we stop these radicals? Let’s do a better job than we do for stopping a nut from obtaining a long gun to shoot a soldier and Parliament.

Let’s improve housing. The shooter yesterday was living out of a homeless shelter.
Let’s improve social supports. Someone who recognized the shooter was mentally ill, should have had someone to turn to for help. The shooter’s judge, should have had an option other than to release a murderous future gunman.
