School Shooting in Canada
- Every Parent's nightmare.........and the saddest thing is that there is no purpose to this mindless act. It's not about money, revenge, political gain .............it's done in a void of insanity.
Truly terrible what has happened.
How old is the male suspect?
Canada is a beautiful country and thankfully shootings are rare, at least compared with the USA.
I hope the criminal is suitably punished (i.e. multiple life sentences to run concurrently), the injured get better and the community recovers from this.

We don't know what was going on in the mind of the shooter yet:
RCMP in Saskatchewan said they were called about "an active shooter" at 1 p.m. CST and said they had a suspect in custody 45 minutes later.
The suspect was arrested outside the school and a firearm was seized. Another school in the community, for elementary grades, was also put under a lockdown. Levy said the lockdown had been lifted.
Saskatchewan's air ambulance system was dispatched to La Loche, which is about 500 kilometres northwest of Prince Albert, Sask., around 1:35 p.m. CST.
"We have no idea what happened and how it happened and why it happened," Kevin Janvier, acting mayor of La Loche, said Friday afternoon. "It's something we should never hear of happening and it's happened today."
