It had to be calculated and planned, but it still is tragic to think that someone would do such a senseless act. :(

Did they do a tox screen?
The shooter always dies. Seems to me you would very much want him alive, just to know why he did it and maybe prevent future incidents. OTOH death of the shooter is very convenient if all is not as it appears. And as far as I know they never do tox screens, they certainly never release the results.

Of course could be a side effect of anti-depression meds or withdrawal from same, but this seems too carefully planned for that to be the cause.

Shocka...

Police have 'good idea' guns used in N.S. mass shooting were not licensed

Police say the man who went on a murderous rampage through five Nova Scotia communities was likely using unlicensed firearms, and investigators are trying find out how he obtained illegal weapons.

That probe into firearms is occurring alongside a hunt for anyone who helped the killer obtain an RCMP uniform and a replica vehicle he used to deceive his pursuers and the public as he went about killing 22 people and setting fire to homes on the weekend.

Chief Supt. Chris Leather said Wednesday that "we have a fairly good idea that, in Canada at least, he didn't have a firearms acquisition certificate."
And this. This makes me feel much safer!

Nova Scotia Shooting

What the actual hell?

Nova Scotia’s police watchdog is investigating why two uniformed officers were shooting in the direction of a fire hall in Onslow being used as a place of refuge the morning of the shooting rampage.

In a statement to Global News, Nova Scotia Serious Incident Response Team (SiRT) interim director Pat Curran said the team is investigating the discharge of firearms by two RCMP officers near the Onslow-Belmont Fire Hall about 10:30 a.m. on Sunday morning.​

When seconds count, the cops are...

...only thirteen and a half hours away...

Police confirmed Wednesday that the suspect managed to escape from a perimeter they had set up around the rural area, but they didn’t realize he was gone until some time between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Sunday when his girlfriend – whom they have described as a “key witness” – revealed details about the fake police car.

The MSM just finished crapping on...

..."Police Death Squads" out in Winnipeg... watch them shift gears here...

Just waiting for the CBC to start whining about why they couldn't stop this guy fast enough...

"Seventeen people, including one member of the RCMP and the primary suspect, are dead after a shooting rampage across rural Nova Scotia on Sunday."

Now that's just one crazy **** playing dressup... whaddaya think happens when a half dozen jihadis with automatic weapons and explosives decide to rampage through a major Canadian city?

"If only there was a law"

Trudeau government vows to enact draconian statutes regarding use of "borrowed police firearms"... and murdering cops... that'll be "super double-illegal"...

"After taking Const. Heidi Stevenson's life, Wortman took the officer's police-issued sidearm and magazines," RCMP Supt. Darren Campbell said.​

I'm not so sure I'd trust Supt. Campbell or his media confreres to give me the time of day...

Police have previously said they have a "fairly good idea" that Wortman didn't have a firearms licence in Canada.

How is that an acceptable answer?

Hey, Darren... are you saying the Canadian Firearms Registry isn't working? You checked the computer, right?
Why the uncertainty? He either has one, or he doesn't.
Questions, questions, questions...

SIRT investigating RCMP activity at Onslow Belmont firehall during Sunday's shooting rampage

The Onslow Belmont Fire Brigade hall was being used as a registration centre for evacuees from the Portapique Beach area Sunday morning when RCMP officers arrived on scene and opened fire.

“The hall was used to provide a place where residents could come take a break, register and get hotel and Red Cross information,” the brigade says in a Facebook posting, which has since been removed.

“We can confirm that around 10:30 a.m. there was gunfire at our hall and the gunfire caused considerable damage to our property, including taking one of our trucks out of service,” the posting said.

Fire Chief Greg Muise bullet damage to one fender, the engine block and the windshield was destroyed.
More:

Joy McCabe, who lives directly beside the firehall, was looking out her kitchen window while cooking breakfast when an RCMP vehicle suddenly stopped in the middle of road. She said two officers got out and both immediately began firing multiple rounds.
Ah, yes. The trustworthy Queen's Horsemen...

I'm beginning to understand...

...why the RCMP is being so cagey about releasing information on Nova Scotia shooter...

Why won't the RCMP definitively state whether Gabriel Wortman had a current, valid RPAL?

The killer’s father, who also described being “beaten” by his son during a vacation in Cuba, told Frank his son had a “helluva a gun collection” and if the RCMP had obtained a “search warrant” he wonders if this could have been averted.

Apparently, you can escape police scrutiny simply by not applying for a firearms licence...

"Between this claimed death threat, the described weapons, the earlier conditional discharge for an assault on a 15-year-old boy and the alleged assault on his father, there were potential red flags that may have slipped between the justice system’s cracks."

Note that when I applied to renew my RPAL recently, the RCMP sent a separate letter to Mrs Neo enquiring if I had done anything to merit further scrutiny.
But, but, but...FARMERS, DUCK HUNTERS & SKEET SHOOTERS!!!

Further on those two Queen's Horsemen shooting up a fire hall.

When seconds count, the RCMP are only...

...thirteen and a half hours away...

And maybe that's not an entirely bad thing...

While the chief and deputy chief of the Onslow Belmont Fire Brigade got the hall ready, an RCMP officer from Pictou County was outside, standing next to his cruiser, providing security.

Two other RCMP officers drove up and, believing the Pictou County officer was the suspect, opened fire on him. Clair Peers, public relations officer for the fire brigade, says the firefighters inside hit the floor.

While RCMP officers were shooting up the fire hall, unbeknownst to police, the killer was driving around the downtown business district of Truro.

Curiously, the public doesn't get to hear another word about the "Clouseau Twins" from any RCMP source. That's not reassuring.
But Trust Cops.

Yeah, right...

Cracks are forming in the RCMP cone of silence

From the outset the RCMP right up to Commissioner Brenda Lucki seems determined to stall for time and control the narrative of this story. They have forced the media to go to court to find out what was in the applications for search warrants executed after the shootings. The law states that such information should be readily available to the public.

The Mounties have also taken refuge behind its claim that it has commissioned a psychological profile of the gunman and can’t say anything at this time.
More:

What I’ve learned and described is that RCMP culture is cult-like. There is an almost mindless commitment to the force. “There is no such thing as an ex-Mountie,” I once wrote, because even retired Mounties seem compelled to protect the image of the force.
Bold mine.

Agreed.

“It was like no one was in charge.”

An Epic Failure;

“Public safety and preservation of life are the primary duties of any peace officer,” said a former high ranking RCMP executive officer who asked for anonymity out of fear of retaliation by current and former law enforcement officials who are vigilant about any criticism of policing by those in the field. “As far as I can tell, the RCMP did nothing in Nova Scotia to save a life. They weren’t ready. It is embarrassing to me. The entire thing was an epic failure.”

Based upon interviews with other current and former police officers, witnesses, and law enforcement, and on emergency services transcripts, it seems clear that there was a collapse of the policing function on that weekend.
Nothing to hide: The federal and provincial governments’ decision not to hold a public inquiry into the worst mass killing in Canadian history is fuelling a growing backlash in Nova Scotia and accusations of a cover-up.
From the comments:

October 2020: Nova Scotia elects 100% Liberal MP’s after Trudeau promises them $5 and a Tim Horton’s coupon each.

5 Saskatchewan farmers and a couple Alberta derrick hands armed with walkie talkies and pipe wrenches could have stopped this killer sooner than the canadian keystone cops.

Let's throw a little light on the two determined folk Gabriel Wortman wasn't able to slaughter during his rampage...

"At 9:48 a.m., GW visited the house of a couple he knew who lived on the 2900 block of Highway 4, in Debert, just north of the intersection with Highway 104."

NOT ME, NOT MINE, NOT TODAY

"The couple hid under their bed, a gun cocked and ready. The killer backed off and continued moving south."

"GW left without harming them, and the couple called 911."

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

Newly released court documents say witnesses told the RCMP that the gunman who carried out the April mass shooting in Nova Scotia smuggled drugs and guns from Maine for years and had secret compartments inside several of his properties.

The gunman took 22 lives during his April 18-19 shooting and burning rampage before police killed him at a service station in Enfield, N.S.

The documents that a media consortium, including The Canadian Press, went before a provincial court judge to obtain reveal a stark picture of the killer’s alleged criminal activities prior to the shootings.

Previously blacked-out details from police applications for search warrants, unsealed Monday by Judge Laurel Halfpenny MacQuarrie, quote a witness telling investigators that Gabriel Wortman had smuggled guns and drugs from Maine for years and “had a bag of 10,000 OxyContin and 15,000 Dilaudid from a reservation in New Brunswick.”
