Allegedly the 1st 911 call came in at 2226 (1026 pm) AT reporting sounds of gunshots. Officers would have responded and communicated what they had found, observed etc etc. Comms Centre would have had an individual in charge and I suspect an on call Duty Officer to contact should the situation become more involved. Nobody knows when this should or could have occurred but even that duty officer would be reporting to someone else. At some stage it would have been known that an active shooter situation was in process so more people become involved. Should a Province wide alert have been issued and when? All questions to be asked but how answered remains to be seen.
Damned if they do and damned if they don't plus a whole host of other things now being brought up. Were enough staff on duty etc etc.

I am so glad I am not the RCMP officer facing the press when they give the updates and question time?

Tragic event and lessons to be learnt but will they?
The US didn't seem to have any such issues communicating with their citizens in Canada.

True and now stories are coming out alleging that discussions were taking place on how to word an alert should it be authorized to be sent out. In other words bureaucracy.

To be fair they didn't have the distractions, but it is similar to my point about what I heard on CBC. Two separate organisations able to give out warnings, seemingly in a better way than those "on the spot"

This doesn't look good

New details have emerged in Canada’s worst mass shooting, raising fresh questions about the attack and authorities’ response

I'm surprised they ran with a picture of where the rcmp officer died trying to protect the public. while bemoaning the response of first responders.

And if *twitter*, a private-sector communications mechanism certainly not universally subscribed to anywhere, received earlier and better details of the developing risk to the general population from the police than any more general alerting system, then the protocols were clearly flawed, and heads should (figuratively) roll within the chains of command.

It is the sort of response I would expect from a traumatized and grieving group of people. I guess even news reporters are feeling the pain of the situation.

New details have been emerging, and will no doubt continue to as investigators piece together where he went and what he did. They didn't know he was impersonating a police officer until they found his girlfriend the morning after.

Just got an emergency alert about shots fired in Hammonds Plains/ Tantallon areas of Halifax. They are telling people to stay inside. I wonder if they are being over cautious now with the alert system.

Canada can be slow when it comes to communication, I had received an email that Canada/US border would see restrictions on travel 24 or so hours before Canada announced and confirmed it.

I am getting more frequent updates and details about whats going on in Canada from the US Gov't than I am from Canada.

jeremy brewer is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Nova Scotia Shooting/shooter

Hi

interesting that reports are coming out that

he did not have a gun licence

and the guns were from the USA

( except for the one/s taken from the police officer that was shot )

So a very hard situation to control

except maybe

increase cbsa border controls/ inspections

or

get doctors to report everyones medical heath

cheers
J

Having a doctors report wouldn't have done anything in this case if he got the guns through illegal means.
