We need less security, not more

Why the best response to the Ottawa shootings is to open Parliament to all Canadians—not to fortify it – Macleans.ca



Personally, as a patriot and former reservist I have no sympathy for anyone killing Canadian soldiers. But is the Ottawa attacks really a military threat to Canada? Will police state measures prevent such attacks in the future?

It’s natural for citizens to have a primal reaction to such events but when coolers heads prevail and we look at the number of Canadians actually killed by mentally ill fundamentalists with addictions problems it is probably less than moose.

To actually reduce the risk of such events I would suggest better healthcare and zero tolerance for fundamentalists funded by oil-money and protected by religion.  Or those who do business with them.
