Back in July this Thread: Police Asked To Return Firearms To Flood Victims was posted to discuss this news from our neighbor to the north.

I came across an article earlier today. In the article there is their documentary about this incident. It's a little long but very worth watching. It will answer comments made from the previous thread and address issues of interest to Americans. The ending ties it together.

edit: I tried to post a link to the July 29th thread it didn't work but the title is correct.
