    We went through a nasty spell

    4 RCMP guarding a crime scene were ambushed and killed early morning by the returning owner with a G3. He had been barred from having firearms and was a long term troublemaker. The BG was wounded and then took his own life.

    Female Surte’ Quebec Police, was killed answering a disturbance complaint against a known troublemaker in an apartment, she banged on the door and stepped to the side, he fired a Lapu .338 (?) hunting rifle through the wall, piercing her armour and killing her.

    Toronto detective off duty approached to kids selling drugs, he was gunned down by them, they took off but were arrested shortly after.
