Does this guy have a nuclear warhead or something?????[/quote]




No but he would have access to all the weapons and ammo that Canadian Tire sells.

True..... I never would have thought they'd have that many types of weapons in stock...after all, he's one person. How many cops are there?



One of our CTC stores down here got broken into and they stole the guns and ammo. No one found out until morning. I guess the alarm wasn't set or the cops didn't get there on time. They have video of them but the got away and still not found.

All the really seem to be doing is giving this guy a chance to secure his position - maybe even set up some traps or something.

from what the media tps and opp have said, there are both the TPS and OPP ERT teams, probably they are taking their pissing contests to see which team is in command shrugs who knows. I bet if this was down south the suspect would either be dead or secured almost 12 hours on in a business/residential area.

[quote="Budgetman"]wow so walmart and the square pretty much closed[/quote]

No, they are still open. Buses are still running to Walmart (the bus passed behind the Police interview in the Walmart Parking lot)



The police on CTV just stated 'he is inside our perimeter, which includes more then just Canadian Tire" so they don't even know where he is?

Aside from inconveniencing travellers and shoppers, the current situation is relatively secure. Why put lives at risk by escalating the situation? Wait the guy out for the time being. He has to realize at some point that he's either coming out in handcuffs or in a bag. Let him decide how he wants this to end.

In the meantime let the police enjoy all the money being spent to have them stand around a parking lot all day.

Yes we (the media) were inside the blocked off perimeter for quite a while, however police eventually said we weren't safe there anymore and escorted us out. This was around 1:30/2pm this afternoon, after we had been on scene since about 6:30/7 this morning. -Taylor
