POLITICS





On Saturday, 18th April 2020, an armed man went on a deadly shooting rampage, killing a score of people while at large.





Disguised as a police officer, and driving in a homemade police car, businessman Gabriel Wartman went on a 12 hour shooting spree in the quiet area of Portapique, Nova Scotia, Canada. Officials regarded it as the worst mass murder in Canadian history.

On late Saturday evening, police were receiving several 911 calls due to reports of house fires, gunshots and other incidents. The Canadian police force acknowledged the seriousness of the terror incidents and advised people to lockdown even more, by hiding in their basements if they have.


He allegedly knew some of the victims and some he did not know. One of the casualties was Police Constable Heidi Stevenson, who was a highly decorated veteran over 2 decades, and highly respected by the community.


Prime Minister Justin Trudeau addressed the Canadian citizens and to those affected. "My hearts go out to everyone affected in what is a terrible situation. I wanna thank the police for their hard work and people for cooperating with authorities."


On the eve of the shooting, 16 people were believed to have been killed. The number rose by a further 3, taking the tally to 19. As from Wednesday, 22 April, the total death rate is sitting at 22. A tragic time for Canada indeed, suffering a national tragedy over an already looming international crisis of Covid-19.
