Yep, in a very short time on the news it went from "two" to "multiple" to "numerous". Very sad. Just goes to show the futility of worrying about guns.

He is saying worry about everything not just guns.

Well, if each and every pedestrian at Yonge and Finch had been carrying a loaded weapon and had the presence of mind to react with it on a few seconds notice, we would see a van full of holes, the same number of dead on the tarmac (perhaps more because of the stray bullets flying around) and a still live driver. It sure is a good thing that we don't have the added complication of an armed population blasting away without skill or guile at random.

No posts along sidewalks would be simpler.

... just in case a mass murderer happens by for the first time ...

How many barriers and bollards in your little town on the Prairie? Statistically, those are a lot more dangerous than North York.

The police and ambulance responders should be commended for what they were able to accomplish today.

Proving once again that we have the best city in the country.

Come have a look next time you visit your home town.

Well, it's not my home town but Regina is my father's. There are geographic features there with my surname, named after my city politician grandfather.

We're real Canadians, you see.
