Subject: Double Murder; A shooting « for nothing » leaves 2 dead, on October 7

Content of the article

The shooting carnage continues in our streets and neighborhoods. This time it was in the so-called dormitory community of Orleans. Not too long ago, one of Ottawa’s top umpires was trying to do a little math on shots compared to last year, but his argument was totally moot. Violent crime is increasing not only in Bytown, but also in urban centers across the country. However, Mr. Freeze is concerned about the seizure of firearms from law-abiding citizens. The criminal element relishes this move since, of course, they are not affected at all because they do not obey the law.

The carjacking phenomenon that is out of control in American cities is now taking place in Montreal. Until the justice system takes gun crimes seriously and offers long prison sentences, things will only get worse.

This last shoot did not take place in a disadvantaged neighborhood, it was in a middle-class neighborhood in the middle of a shopping center. Maybe the people who thought this only happens in low-rise buildings will pressure their Liberal MPs, since this town is almost all red, and hold them to account for their government’s inaction. Hurry up.



(Apparently the sky is falling.)


Justin Trudeau’s most recent gun seizure is rightly being pushed back as it is nothing more than an appeal to his constituents in urban centers and will produce no real results in stopping crimes committed with guns. fire arms. Recent police seizures of contraband guns from the United States show where the gun problem really exists, and not with honest, law-abiding gun owners.

Trudeau said Canadians don’t need guns for personal protection. He should try to tell that to many people living in rural western Canada, where the nearest RCMP detachment may be several miles away.

Good to see the Premiers of Alberta and Saskatchewan say they will not participate in the Trudeau gun buyback. This will put the RCMP in those provinces in an untenable position, as they are contracted to do provincial policing, so they answer to premiers, which makes it difficult for Trudeau to use them to prosecute gun owners. .



(Making the cops uncomfortable is a good thing?)

Tired of reruns

What a disappointment to watch our federal government in session. An answer to a question becomes a question to an answer. So both ways it continues with a lot of unnecessary background noise and harassment left and right.

The feeling that nothing is ever accomplished is so repetitive that I prefer to watch an old rerun of an episode of M*A*S*H. They seem to make more sense. Mr. Poilievre’s positivity to hold on is admirable, especially being the newcomer to the neighborhood and dealing with the other schoolyard bullies. Seems like a bit of a change of direction from the NDP in the middle. It can benefit the right if Mr Singh continues to rotate.

These sessions seem to accomplish nothing but indecisive bickering, which consumes most of the time spent in sessions. For the good of all of us, do it and start reaping the benefits for Canadians struggling to keep walking on water without a life jacket in these tough economic times.

These Groundhog Day sessions continue to be the most annoying and unpleasant act in the political circus.



(We heard there’s a new Game of Thrones spin-off that’s pretty nice.)

  1. Ottawa City Hall.

    YOU SAID IT: Spend, spend, spend

  2. People demonstrate against the Iranian regime during a demonstration at Mel Lastman Square in Toronto on September 24, 2022. Iran has been rocked by street violence since the death of Mahsa Amini, a 22-year-old Kurd who had spent three days in a coma after being arrested by the vice squad.

    YOU SAID IT: Don’t Touch
