Toronto police received six calls for shootings over the course of just 12 hours beginning Friday afternoon, something the deputy chief called “very concerning.”

Officers were first called to a shooting at Scarborough Town Centre just after 2:10 p.m. Friday.

A man was shot in the abdomen and was taken to hospital in serious but non-life-threatening condition.

Following that incident, police reported two instances of shots being fired, including in the Don Mills Road and Eglinton Avenue area where a vehicle was shot at in a suspected drive-by.

No injuries were reported in those incidents.

Around 10:15 p.m., police were called to the area of Jane Street and Woolner Avenue. Officials said five people were shot, one critically, after shooters “indiscriminately” opened fire at individuals in the area.

Police then reported two other incidents of shots being fired, though there were no additional victims.

“Our shooting numbers are up this year, but they are more consistent with what they were in 2018,” Deputy Chief Shawna Coxon said.

“We’re always looking at links. Not just between this shooting and others, but patterns across the city. You’ve heard the chief of police speak a lot about gangs and the interaction between gangs across the city. The last 24 hours, it’s really too soon to say, but we are looking actively into each one as well as how they may be connected or not.”

On Saturday morning, police also responded to the Weston Road and Finch Avenue area where officials said a 1-year-old girl and 4-year-old boy were seriously injured in a stabbing.

Good idea....let’s defund the police and send in unarmed crisis workers...they’ll sort it out.

French to english translation from CBC. Here was a very real opportunity to call an assault rifle an assault rifle.

When real assault rifles with selective fire are actually known to exist in a community, they refuse to call them what they actually are. Too focussed on calling things what they aren't. Speaking of which, where is the RCMP and their "Patrol Carbines" when they're needed? And how did an surplus CAF assault rifle magically morph into a "patrol carbine?" And, who do you think you're kidding here?

July 8 2020
Nutashkuan (First Nations reserve), Quebec

The arrest of a member of the Nutashkuan community by an agent of the Sûreté du Québec last Saturday, would have led to an incident possibly involving military-type weapons classified by the Sûreté du Québec police union as dangerous.

The Association of Provincial Police Officers of Quebec (APPQ) sent a letter on Tuesday to Quebec's Minister of Public Security, Geneviève Guilbault.

APPQ stated that a member of the Innu community, allegedly carrying a military-type weapon, tried to ambush the police. Suspecting a deception, the officers decided not to go to the scene.

The suspected police ambush is believed to be the culmination of a series of events stemming from a July 4 community arrest during which the police allegedly used force.

The arrest was allegedly filmed by a citizen and the video shared on social media, causing the excitement of several residents of Nutashkuan. This video appears to have been removed since and Radio-Canada was unable to view it.

APPQ claims that on the same day, a person posted the image of his military-type weapon on Facebook by posting a comment targeting the police.

Just before 11 p.m. that evening, and according to information received by the APPQ, members of the community allegedly carrying military-type weapons were reported to have traveled by vehicle in the community. They would have pressured the gatehouse set up to control the comings and goings to counter COVID-19, so that the police could no longer enter Nutashkuan.

A little later, shots were fired. Information corroborated by Richard Malec, counselor to the band council of Nutashkuan.

It was later that evening that the SQ received a call from an individual explaining that someone was being beaten.

The police, however, indicate that the person who made the call used a false name and that his number belongs to a suspect who threatened the police the same day on social networks.

The police therefore decided not to appear at the scene where they had been called.

The Quebec Provincial Police Association believes that this event could easily have escalated. For them, it reflects long-standing tensions between the SQ police and some members of the Nutashkuan community.

Councilor Richard Malec also indicates that relations are strained between the community and SQ agents who are involved.

For him, this event is an isolated case and he claims that everything has gone back to normal since then.

He considers that the problem underlying this type of event is the use of drugs, particularly amphetamines, by certain residents. A problem the band council is fighting against.

"The allegations reported in Mr. Veilleux's letter are worrying and deplorable, if they prove to be true," said the cabinet of Geneviève Guilbault, Minister of Public Security.

The issue of military-type weapons APPQ calls for the intervention of the Minister of Public Security and proposes the addition of personnel in the sector.

However, by e-mail, the Department tells us that the union must contact the general management of the SQ.

"It is not the minister who manages the human resources of the Sûreté du Québec. It is the police who decide how their personnel are used and where they are posted," writes Jean-François Del Torchio, the communications director of Geneviève Guilbault's office.

According to the organization’s president, Pierre Veilleux, it is the presumed presence of military, semi-automatic and automatic weapons in the community that worries the police the most.

A situation that would not be generalized to the majority of indigenous communities, according to information from the APPQ.

The association also plans to turn to the Federal Ministry of Public Security. She plans to offer him the establishment of a military-type arms exchange program. Aboriginal people who are in possession of a prohibited weapon could, for example, exchange it for a hunting weapon.

APPQ asks Quebec City to support it in its dealings with the federal government.

The provincial government intends to support this request from the provincial police union.

"With regard to the 1,500 models and variants of military-style assault weapons on the list of prohibited weapons in Canada, we are going to recommend to the federal government that they be banned for everyone, including aboriginal peoples, now rather only after the two-year exemption period, since even they say they never made this exemption request," said Del Torchio.

Towards a local police force?

Furthermore, according to Richard Malec, this event demonstrates that an Aboriginal police force should be established in the community.

"They would know the culture, the way of acting, the Aboriginal mentality. That would be ideal," said the advisor.

An ambition that the president of the APPQ considers legitimate.

"This is one of the alternatives that the government should study. [...] We are not against it," said Veilleux.

However, the creation of a local police force, as in other Innu communities, requires significant funding and poses the challenge of recruiting Aboriginal police officers.

Radio-Canada is awaiting a reaction from the Sûreté du Québec regarding the APPQ letter.

Calgary shootings on par for highest numbers in 5 years, police chief says

Calgary police chief Mark Neufeld joins Global News Morning Calgary live via Skype to discuss current issues facing Calgarians and their police service.

  •  

Calgary police officers have been busy this year as gun crime increases across the city.

“We’re up to 56 shootings year to date,” police chief Mark Neufeld said on Global News Morning Calgary on Wednesday.

“We’re on par to have the worst year we’ve had in five years.”

Neufeld noted a large number of the city’s shootings have occurred over the last few months amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, with majority of them being classed as a targeted crime.

 

“It started off slow with the pandemic, I think that changed people’s habits, and then we had a couple of months where we had significant spikes,” he said. “March and June were two really big months.

“I would say seven of 10 of are targeted shootings, which means these individuals know one another and have some sort of a conflict going on.”

Neufeld added that more than half of the city’s shootings are attributed to drugs.

“Over 50 per cent of them — in these ones and over the last five years — the trend is that 56 per cent of them we can tie back directly to inter-group or intra-group conflict related to drugs,” he added. “So that’s the big driver here, certainly in the city.”

Police have also become aware of people associated with drugs carrying concealed weapons, Neufeld said.

“The intel we have in our city, and in other major cities in the country, is that drug dealers at lower levels are actually in possession of firearms on the street — that’s not a good thing.”

While the pandemic itself may not be a driving factor, Neufeld said he believes the closures spurred by the virus could have an impact on the city’s number of shootings.

“I think what’s happening here with the borders closed is there have been some issues around drug supply, which is probably creating some tensions on the street,” he said.

 

Neufeld also noted that gun sales in the city have skyrocketed this year.

“The other thing we’re hearing from the intelligence side of things is that a lot of guns were sold just prior to the pandemic,” he said.

Gang turf wars are now "intra-group conflict related to drugs" in idiot speak, the big driver is PC stupidity.

Say the words, "ethnic gangs competing for control of the cities' rampant drug trade".

You are either winning this war or in the process of losing it.... Dumb grunt simplicity studies 101.

And of course the move to classify certain guns as illegal, will cut this down....   Ya Sure! 

By the by the make up of the drug gangs here in Calgary, is most often mixed re race, the fight seems to be more about territory.  

Mind you as long as they don't shoot any bystanders, I am not sad when they take each other out.

Mike Huckabee says 'criminals are running wild' in Chicago, NYC: 'It's just a tragedy'

Huckabee says New York City and Chicago 'are more dangerous now than Somalia or Syria in the midst of a civil war'

Huckabee: Chicago, New York more dangerous now than Somalia or Syria

Fox News contributor Mike Huckabee shares his thoughts on rising crime in major U.S. cities.

“Criminals are running wild” in several cities across the country, turning them into “absolute hellholes” amid an alarming spike in violent crime, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee said on “Outnumbered Overtime.”

 

Huckabee, a Fox News contributor, pointed out on Monday that “New York and Chicago have some of the most strict gun control laws in the world.”

“It's very difficult for private citizens to own a firearm in those cities and yet the prevalence of firearms among the criminals makes it very clear that somebody has decided they are just not going to follow the law,” Huckabee said.

He then asked, “Why should they?”

“Nobody's going to enforce it,” Huckabee continued.

TWO SUSPECTS IN CUSTODY AFTER INFANT IS SHOT IN CHICAGOVideo

“They're not going to be held accountable for breaking the law and so the criminals are running wild and it's just a tragedy for great cities of our country to be turned into absolute hellholes.”

In Chicago, another turbulent weekend has left at least 10 people dead from gun violence and 60 injured – including at least 10 minors, police said.

 

In New York City between July 17and 19, there were 22 shooting incidents and 24 shooting victims reported, according to the NYPD. Shooting incidents are up 340 percent compared with the year before and shooting victims increased by 380 percent from 2019, the NYPD reported.

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Monday, “I do think we saw some progress this weekend. We got a lot more we got to do, but at least we’re beginning to see progress from the combination of putting officers out in the places [with the] biggest impact in a pinpointed way and the growing presence of community members working with NYPD to stop the violence.”

“I don't know how Bill de Blasio could possibly say that things are getting better,” Huckabee said on Monday, noting the “350 percent increase in violent crimes” and “when places like Chicago and New York are more dangerous now than Somalia or Syria in the midst of a civil war.”

“I don't know where they come up with the idea that their cities are OK,” Huckabee said. “They're not OK.”

Fox News’ Greg Norman contributed to this report.

Re the Nova Scotia rampage........Why I am I feeling a coverup is at hand??  Is it because Bill Blair is involved?

Quote

The review means it is up to the panel to decide whether any hearings will be held in public. All documents and information collected as part of the review will also be kept confidential.
 

Some family members of the 22 victims of the Nova Scotia mass shooting say they're deeply disappointed by the announcement Thursday of an independent review into the tragedy.

Relatives have been calling for a public inquiry, but today the provincial and federal governments stopped short of that, instead announcing there will be an independent three-person panel led by the province's former top judge.

The review process also does not include some of the powers granted in a public inquiry, such as information provided under oath, the ability to subpoena and binding recommendations.

Federal Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said both levels of government are "absolutely committed" to this review and its recommendations.

"This is the right approach and we believe we have the right people to do the work and they have the necessary authorities to get Nova Scotians the answers they deserve," Blair said.

Nova Scotia's opposition parties are also calling for an inquiry instead of a review.

In a written statement, Tim Houston, leader of the Progressive Conservatives, described the review as "a complete and utter abdication of responsibility" and "cover your ass politics."

"Premier Stephen McNeil promised Nova Scotians that by waiting for months, the chosen mechanism would ensure change across the country. We now know that wasn't true," the statement said.

"Nova Scotians should be angry, not only because they have been cheated out of an inquiry that is essential to getting answers, but because their Premier and Prime Minister are attempting to fool them into thinking this direction is in their best interest. We need to know who will be held accountable for this short-sighted decision."

Also in a statement, NDP leader Gary Burrill said the decision to forgo an inquiry in favour of the review was "hurtful and disappointing."

Government and RCMP culpability in this is up to their eyeballs. That's why government lawyers have been in court suppressing warrant information and most of the particulars of the case. 

You will likely hear very little until after the election this fall because all of the findings will point to the government not following it's own rules.... and people will be appalled by the extent of it.

The Liberals need an election as soon as they can and JT's ethical debacle presents a tactical problem for them. The results of any inquiry into the NS shooting would severely effect their results in the Maritimes, and they know it.

That alone, says everything about a coverup in the biggest murder spree in Canada’s history....after what the turd did to VA Mark Norman (again a confidential settelement) and the lavalin affair and the self righteousness of MPs like Chagger, garneau, McKenna, o Reagan, etc....how can anyone not have concerns about the liberals?...Jesus! I detest this government!

The cover up is the attempt by the federal government to hide the shortcomings of the RCMP to protect the public.....shortly after the murders at Portaupique there were reports of short staffing of the detachments, the shooter had a history of violence and possession of illegal weapons (this was reported to the RCMP 7 years ago and they did nothing), the failure of the civic alert system similar to an amber alert (even though US citizens were told of the danger), the seeming lack of communication of units that allowed the shooter to escape and continue killing people over a 13 hour period. And I’ve probably left out a few.

Hundreds of people wanted to know answers to what went so wrong that 22 people were murdered.......so governments have stepped in, ignoring the rights of these citizens, made a decision to form a panel that will only ....

Quote

The independent review panel will have no power to compel witnesses or testimony, no power to subpoena evidence, no power to challenge any agency or organization that refuses to provide information, and no power to make binding recommendations to the government.

Instead, the panel will make recommendations on “preventing and managing” similar mass killing events “wherever they may occur.”

And as I mentioned earlier, the panel will decide what information is released to the public.

Some more reading:

https://www.macleans.ca/politics/ottawa/the-nova-scotia-murders-end-the-farce-call-the-inquiry/

This panel seems to have the same power as the ethics commissioner  looking into the SNC scandal.

So forgive me for not having any confidence in the current group controlling the agenda.

Things I've heard, some of which border on "wild conspiracy";

- the shooter was related to a currently serving member of the RCMP in the Maritime provinces which may explain certain items in his possession

- the shooter had in the days before the shooting, apparently, withdrawn a very large sum of money from a bank in a way the circumvented FINTRAC.  FINTRAC is the federal system for tracking money to detect illegal activities.  The process used, apparently, was the same process used to pay informants and police operatives leading to some opinion that the shooter was known to the police and protected on the basis of this association.

- that the firearms in his possession may have been lost/stolen from the RCMP which opens many questions about their care/control of firearms in an era where civilians are constantly, and without cause, blamed for illegal firearms used in crimes.

These are not my opinion but simply things heard.

He had a criminal record (for assault), he was unlicensed, the guns were unregistered, they were all illegally obtained and clearly not stored IAW regulations and the RCMP knew all about it since it was reported to them.... not once but twice. And who was the source of these illegal weapons that were transferred to him illegally? Inquiring minds want to know.

The things we already know to be factual are pretty wild, at least wild enough for me. Any conspiracy theories are a direct result of the intentional information suppression IMO. I'm willing to bet that Liberal support in the Maritimes would plummet if all the facts came out; the wounds still run red here and JT and his gang know it. The fact that it's politically motivated is simply appalling.  

If Harper or Trump did this sort of thing the people shrugging their shoulders right now would be hatching multi-coloured kittens on the floor and the Trump 2.0 thread  would be on fire. 

Frankly, what I resent most is the breathtaking level of hypocrisy. I want to know why the information is being suppressed, to me, that's more important than the information itself. And using this event in order to enact a manifestly idiotic OIC leaves me breathless. There is no negotiating with these people, they have falsified data and manipulated statistics at virtually every turn in support of their narrative. 

Give them a few more days and it will be Harper's fault.

Part of the warrant information the government has been struggling to suppress:

RCMP were told gunman behind Nova Scotia mass shooting smuggled drugs and guns for years, warrant reveals

https://nationalpost.com/news/warrant-alleges-n-s-mass-shooter-was-seasoned-smuggler-of-narcotics-u-s-guns

Too many political agendas in this to have any faith in either the media, the government or the RCMP. Even if you take a closer look at the protest you find a political agenda with a strong violence against women context. That issue will be at the forefront of future firearm regulations and the government is fully behind pressing that angle. 

This release is the tip of the iceberg with much more to come, hanging all of this on licensed gun owners and competitive shooters when it's actually the government itself that deserves sanction is liberal arrogance at its best. What we are seeing now (on almost every current issue) is the placement of agenda above truth, reason, common sense and the public good.

Nothing good comes of that and even so, those with agendas press on undeterred and will fully support the governments deliberate suppression and manipulation of information if it benefits their particular agenda.

Stop and consider for a moment.... the government, while knowing everything about this case, used it falsely to  prohibit some 9,500 firearms, many of which were previously unrestricted.

And for those keeping track, 4 separate shootings in the GTA last night (not so long ago 1 a week was the norm). No news conferences or lectures from Tory or Blair.

I’m sceptical enough to think that even though this was the right thing to do, politics still played a role. NS MPs probably said we liberals will take a bigger hit by not having an inquiry than dealing with the findings. They will probably hope for an election before the findings come out! Live long enough to spin another day.

The decision to hold a review into the mass killing in April that resulted in the deaths of 22 people in Nova Scotia took three months to arrange. In less than a week the decision has been undone after a massive wave of public backlash.

Federal Public Safety Minister Bill Blair announced on Tuesday a public inquiry will be held into the mass shooting that began in Portapique, N.S. on April 18 and came to an end nearly 100 km away, 13 hours later.

“The Government of Canada is now proceeding with a full Public Inquiry, under the authority of the Inquiries Act,” said Blair in a statement.
 

Nova Scotia MPs break ranks

Tuesday also saw multiple Nova Scotia Liberal MPs broke ranks with their colleagues and called for a public inquiry into the mass shooting.

Darren Fisher, MP for Dartmouth-Cole Harbour, Lenore Zann, MP for Cumberland-Colchester, Sean Fraser, MP for Central Nova, Mike Kelloway, MP for Cape Breton-Canso, and Andy Fillmore, MP for Halifax, all issued statements that they had heard the complaints from their constituents.

The five MPs who broke ranks with their colleagues on Tuesday were among the 10 Nova Scotia MPs who had signed a letter on the day that the review was announced welcoming the decision.

Fisheries Minister Bernadette Jordan, MP for South Shore-St. Margarets and the only cabinet minister from Nova Scotia declined to comment on the matter as a Nova Scotia MP and instead referred all requests to Blair’s office.

"This summer has answered the question, “why would somebody ever need an AR-15 or a high-capacity magazine?” As the Left continues to advocate for ending private ownership of military-style rifles, Americans can also see that powerful rifles are turning up in the possession of violent rioters and looters."

"Why do these leftist protestors suddenly have access to expensive weapons? One answer may be China. In May, U.S. Customs and Border Protection seized approximately 10,000 assault weapons parts in Kentucky. According to the Epoch Times, U.S. customs officials have seized a staggering 5,300 gun parts shipments from China in 2020, up from 31 shipments in 2019. For emphasis, that’s not 5,300 parts that were seized, but 5,300 shipments of parts that federal authorities intercepted."

Once again, we see the hand of the Chinese Communists invading our shores by infiltration and by unleashing various diseases upon us. Has the time come for America and Western Europe to cut ties with China altogether?

Maybe China should be "dis-invited " from the world community of nations!

The world would certainly become a much safer place.

Pictures of rampaging mobs surely have persuaded average Americans that they must have guns to protect their lives and their property.

"On a bipartisan basis, law-abiding whites, blacks, Democrats, and Republicans see the rising violence as a threat to their families. In deep-blue Minnesota, for example, gun stores are emptying out, particularly of ammunition, as fearful citizens wait as long as four hours to purchase a gun. Across the nation, background checks, which were well on their way to an all-time record earlier this year, have almost doubled when compared to this time last year. "

Law-Abiding Americans look at the large numbers of rioters and anarchists at their front door and realize that a gun which can only shoot a few rounds will be totally ineffective in protecting their lives and their property from the myriad mob.

All of this has set back reasonable gun control measures in the US by at least 20 years.. On a rolling monthly basis, fully 1% of the US population are buying guns, many of them are first time owners who would previously never considered having a gun in the house. They fear what's happening, they fear a drastically reduced police presence and regardless of their political persuasion, they rightly fear the outcome of the next election. It's bad for society, bad for democracy and bad for thoughtful gun control initiatives.

Go to CNN right now and behold the complete lack of coverage on anything pertaining to the riots, looting or violence. Why is that? 

Democrats may win, but they will be stepping into a huge and volatile mess they were instrumental in creating. Political parties are no longer friends (meaning respectful of each others commitment to the country) but bitter enemies with little hope of reconciliation or even the desire for it. This could have been an easy win for them, now it's up in the air and even if they do prevail, they've allowed their own party to become so fractured that the concept of unity is far beyond the ability of Biden to manage without total capitulation. There are gun control implications for Canada as a result of all this but that's beyond the scope of the discussion and could choke a whole new thread. Regardless though, Toronto City Council and JT's Liberals are uniquely unqualified to mitigate it.

Try and join The Coalition for Gun Control.

Have a look at what they have to say about such things as gang violence in Toronto or gun smuggling through reserves. Go online and try to find real information, hard numbers, the ethnic breakdown of street gangs and underlaying community challenges that might be mitigated by targeted intervention.

Try and breakdown all of the Toronto area shootings over 2019 with a view toward establishing trends, patterns and identities of the shooters that might help with stopping it.  Try and find any sort of worthwhile weapon information from the NS shooting. I have and it's damn thirsty work, you need way better search skills than I have.

Now take a break from reality and search out the memes and quotes from the Coalition. You will have no problem finding stuff like this and some of it (like this) is so false and so vile that it actually works against them....  

Now, have a look at violent activities, shootings and accident statistics at sanctioned Canadian IPSC matches over the last 20 years. See if there is any other conclusion you can come to that opposes my assertion that they are liars. You will find more injuries, violence and police responses to golf courses and church picnics.

If you live in the Toronto area, the safest place for you to spend the day is at an IPSC match but you will never hear that from Wendy.
