“I don't know what Toronto cops carry. The Mounties all have 12ga. shotguns in the car. If you can't hit a guy in the leg at 10 meters with a 12ga., then you have no business being a cop. This is no different than when they shot that kid on a streetcar a while back. No reason for these deaths.”

“A shot to the leg with a 9mm would take the wind out of his sails real quick. No reason for 3 kill shots when you have that many armed cops around him.”

“All those "trained" cops, and not one of them is able to line up a shot to just disable this guy?”

Chris P Bacon on Nov 28, 2013 at 12:28:12

“No. That's not what the handgun is for.

All those trained cops, and the guy with the scissors doesn't listen to them?”

stciappelletto on Nov 28, 2013 at 12:20:56

“Use of force rules maybe need to be revised.

Before there is an imminent threat, they would probably be charged if they shot him in the leg, for using excessive force.

Once there's no choice but to shoot, they have to use lethal force.

There needs to be some room in between there.

It's too bad they didn't have a taser. It's a case in point of how having a taser ready can save lives.”

“Having spent just over 36 years on both drilling and service rigs all over western Canada, I can assure you that every rig flies our flag, and they are almost always dirty after a few days. That shows no disrespect on the part of rig crews. I have never seen a tattered or frayed flag on a rig, but have seen many in very poor shape flying over schools, provincial buildings, firehalls, and even RCMP stations. A little Alberta crude on the Maple leaf is no big deal, flying a flag that is missing a good portion of one red bar is a big deal. That bit of crude on that flag represents what is keeping Canada great at this point in history.”

“A lot of folks in the north no longer live the traditional ways. They may feel they have lost a sense of purpose. The young people do not know the ways of the land, and instead watch TV and become distracted with the "southern" ways that are depicted on TV. They sit around, bored, nothing productive happening around them, and quickly turn to substance abuse. There is no easy answer to the problems these folks are faced with, but one thing is certain, we cannot compare them to the problems of youth in the south. ( I have been in the north 51 years now)”

thatbohemianone on Aug 15, 2013 at 07:09:32

“How do the youth generally feel about relocating in the south? I agree about the need of a sense of purpose and also what previous posters have said about the need for work. What about more reliable internet? As I posted earlier, Suga Mitra had wonderful success bringing computers to rural India. The children taught themselves english and learned a lot about serious subject. One of the most interesting parts of the story was how he observed the children teach each other how to use the computers with little mentoring from adults. He did ask for 'grandmothers' to volunteer to act as mentors, but they only helped the kids when they got stuck, they didn't direct the learning. I'd love to hear your opinion about whether something like this could work in Canada's North?”

“Yes everything you state is true...but all Canadians have to take an interest and try to help out when there is a need for the children and adults of the country who are experiencing desperate situations. The Minister of Aboriginal Affairs seems to be turning a blind eye and deaf ear to the needs of these people...When was the last time she or he went up there to live with the people for sometime and speak to them about what they require and what other Canadians can try to do to help them out. We need feedback and the Minister and staff are responsible for making sure Canadians throughout the country know about the circumstances and push for changes and grant more assistance to these people in any form necessary to get the job done. All Canadians care about them no matter how far they are away from the rest of the population.”

“White Clay has a population of 14, yet 4 liquor stores in the town sell 12,500 cans of beer each day. The stores have been documented repeatedly selling to bootleggers, intoxicated people, minors, and trading beer for sexual favors.“For over 100 years the women of the Oglala Lakota nation have been dealing with an attack on the mind body and spirit of their relatives”, says Olowan Martinez who is a main organizer of the event and resident of Pine Ridge. “The Oglala have been silenced through chemical warfare waged by the corporations who are out to exploit and make a profit off of the suffering and misery of our people. The time has come to end this suffering by any means necessary.”Debra White Plume, a Lakota activist and resident of Pine Ridge who spoke at the event proclaimed, “A sober Indian is a dangerous Indian.  We have to send a message to Nebraska and its citizens that we are not going to tolerate business as usual. This is the Women’s Day of Peace but that peace will soon be over”.After the march and speeches members of Deep Green Resistance locked down and blockaded the road into White Clay.Less than a half hour after the lockdown began a police officer rolled down their window and indiscriminately pepper sprayed into a crowd.   Up to 12 people were pepper sprayed including the 10 year old son of a Lakota woman who helped organize the march.  Also, an elder Lakota woman, Helen Red Feather,”

“It appears you have never shipped anything of value before. It is up to the carrier to take the risk. The owner of the commodity will insure the product against loss, but the liability falls on the transport company. Just like pipelines, once the oil is in the pipeline, it is the responsibility of the pipeline operator.”

“My point here is that, the oil industry on a global scale affects out lives in a very negative way, be it pollution, poverty, death, medical reasons etc.  There cannot be the usual or common solutions to a problem that has been ignored for a very long time.  The oil industry should be responsible for the quality of transiting their products.  If you ship an item to someone in poor packaging or with a defunct carrier, you are the loser, and if it's a bomb, you are still the person at fault because it all originated with you.  The oil industry makes trillions every year, and they should be part and parcel to improvements and maintenance.  Giving out tax incentives and not getting anything back is rediculous”
