He'll be willing to take out many more before they finally shoot him, or he blows his own brains out :(

Depending on what his plan is (how far ahead he's thought it out) he may have slipped the cordon and got away, already commited suicide, or could be holed up in a prepared defensive position ready to do battle. At least now the sun's up the law should have airborne drones with cameras as well as IR imaging searching the forest. A witness said he has 2 assault rifles, a crossbow and a knife. I'm guessing when he is located police will assume he could have explosives as well and approach accordingly. His use of facebook revealing his identity indicates he isn't planning on getting away with it so I'm not holding my breath that he'll surrender.

Remind me again, why do guns need to be so freely available ?

Re: Gunman on the loose - Moncton
 
Actually, it was said on the news that "if guns were? Freely available" he be dead now, shot by a bystander/witness to the cop killings

The area sealed off is only a few minutes away from where I am but the 'action' is some way off.

Schools closed, bus service suspended, Gov offices closed, mail delivery suspended for the day, hospital only taking visitors of critically ill relatives. Even stores have closed when they stay open despite official warnings to stay home for dangerous weather. Garbage trucks haven't been out.

But my newspaper got delivered!!
