Is anyone else getting the feeling that a  possible attempt to assassinate Justin Trudeau, our Prime Minister, is being portrayed as sort of “meh” in the media? The front pages from the Globe and Mail, Global News, and the National Post.  Only Global has a story on it on the front page, and of course CBC is still with the story as I’m quoting their article for this post.

 

 

“Hurren allegedly drove his truck through the pedestrian gate at 1 Sussex Drive at around 6:30 a.m. ET Thursday morning, which stopped working on impact.
He then headed toward the ground’s greenhouse on foot with what appeared to be a firearm, stopping to hide in a rose garden for three minutes around 6:35 a.m., said Duheme.
Duheme said officers spotted Hurren at 6:43 a.m. and began talking with him two minutes later.
“It was only at 6:53 where the suspect responded and a dialogue ensued,” Duheme said.”

Good heavens, only in Canada do we talk down a possible assassin and ask him to please release himself into police custody.  I think if this incident happened a coupe of parallels of latitude to the south, a different more fatal outcome would have ensued.

 

“The RCMP did not answer questions about the note at this morning’s briefing, citing the ongoing investigation.When asked if police know Hurren’s motivation, Duheme said “yes” but would not go into details. The RCMP did say Hurren wasn’t known previously to police and was not on any watch lists.Hurren ran a business called GrindHouse Fine Foods, which makes meat products. In a Facebook post he reported that the novel coronavirus pandemic had taken a toll on his business.”I’m not sure what will be left of our economy, industries and businesses when this all ends,” he wrote May 26.CBC News Manitoba also reported that roughly an hour before Hurren entered the Rideau Hall grounds, a Facebook page associated with his business posted a meme of a big outdoor party that supposedly would occur after the lockdown.

The post also directs people to look up “Event 201″ — a worldwide pandemic preparedness exercise run last year that conspiracy theorists now use to suggest Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates is behind COVID-19.”

Yep, armed and seemingly enthrall to conspiracy theories aaaaaand traipsing around Sussex Drive.  I hope our police are not handling the situation like the brother’s Andy from Hott Fuzz, but the media seems to be.
