Canada?? Wow! Slowly but sure Canada will fall to the same levels of violence of the USA, Guatemala, Colombia and parts of Mexico, I hope not!

Oh for the love of god, Canada's crime rate if I'm not mistaken has pretty much either stayed the same or has fallen for the past several years, this shooting does not indicate that Canada is falling to the "same levels of violence of the USA blah blah.

Besides America's crime rate has been falling for the past 20 years.

What a joke of a comment.

The guy was a security employee so he had access to a gun -- it is therefore not really an issue of ease of access or of gun violence in general. Hope they catch the guy.

What was an armoured truck doing in a uni campus anyway?

One could easily make the case that security personnel would not need guns if guns were not commonly available. After all, they were only guarding money. Its not worth any security guard's life to draw a weapon to defend it.

If they were not armed with guns, it is more likely that none would have been shot. In fact, guns made this whole thing possible, because if it was one man acting alone, how would he fare against four men if they all had only billy clubs? We can believe it was one man simply because he had a gun and the element of surprise. Bang, bang, bang, bang! He shot them down before they could draw their own guns. The guns changed everything. If only he had a gun he could have taken the risk of letting these men live.

What's with the recent spate of shootings in Canada? Hope it's not a trend.

Just keep out the Americans, Guatemalans, Colombians and Mexicans.

Another day, another mass shooting in the canada. Of course, some people will come on here and claim that the guy is a security employee so, no there's no issue of gun violence in this case.

Shame that people would take a callous "nothing to see here. Move along, folks" stance at their deaths.

Lots of people getting killed with guns in Canada these days. Not sure I'd feel comfortable taking the family there on a vacation.

I'm not even joking, this is pretty much what happened on the show Person of Interest. My mother and I discussed the possibility of the suspect getting inspiration from the show, the episode was about 3 months ago. Canada is a safe place, I live here. Except if you live in an area called Jane and Finch, or Scarborough. People get shot and raped all the time. On the radio they say "A male was shot in the Jane and Finch area". That's all we need to know. We already know everything about it with just those words. Of course they go more into detail but we already know about it, gang violence or people being shot randomly or a sick murder.

Reminds us of the heist movie Armored (2009).

Canada has 33 million people living there. I'm not sure why you guys are so shocked it has some of the same problems as the other G8. These comments come off as completely ignorant to the rest of the world. I would have thought access to the internet would have increased your awarness of the planet Earth?

Toronto is 3000 Km from Edmonton btw. I am sure you didn't know this. Toronto has 6 million people, and Edmonton 1.2 million. We don't all live harmoniously together. We also don't live in igloo's, and as you can guess we have the internet. :) I hope I broaden your mind. I'm sure I have increased your knowledge about Canada exponentially from where it was before.

I live in the city this happened. My GF use to work with the female who passed away. My brother went to school with the shooter. This hits really close to home, so sensless ignorant comments are extremely irratating. "Normal" gang related crime is what we are use to seeing in the news here. Problems every society has, not this sensless unprovoked act of cold blooded murder.

The place the shooting occured at was a Mall located on campus. It has banks, and ATMs in it. All ATMs are loaded and unloaded by armoured vehicles. I bet even where you are from.
