This seems like an attempt at murder suicide though it is WAY TOOO EARLY TO SPECULATE. Scary situation

People who label others as bandwagoners, people who tell other people "how" to cheer for their team, "how" they should act or what they should wear to "support" their team, people who only want to hear positive thoughts and don't want to read about how the team can do better - these are people who are insecure and uncomfortable within their own skin.

I'll support my team the way I choose, thank you very much. You can choose to support your team the way you want to, and I won't judge you on it as long as you don't try to force your beliefs on me. I'll also be quick to point out where I think the team can do better, because identifying that there is a problem is the first step to fixing it; denying or ignoring a problem won't solve anything.

Go Canucks Go.

Currently both sides closed. They were inspectingbhe van when he shot her. Must of had something he was trying to smuggle in, and he probably didnt want to go to jail and ended up doing that.
Just my guess,

Thats messed! Hope she'll be okay!

Not at all. That is probably the stupidest reaction to have. There are going to be 1 off incidents such as these and regardless of what the media tells you border security isnt a problem. The media always looks for stories and I am sure we will hear about this for few weeks.

Most likely it will, especially Pacific Truck Crossing. Border guards will be on high alert right now.

That one will definitely take a brunt of the traffic, there is one near chilliwack I've used before that seems to be under the radar, may be worth checking out: the extra drive time can easily be made up by shorter lines

Back on topic though, it was bound to happen eventually at one of the crossings going either way. There is nothing really that can be done to prevent an incident like this from happening, tightening the border even more would be a nightmare and hiring more CBSA officers is out of the question per the Federal budget. It's not like it would be needed anyways as this is something that hopefully only occurs once and a while.

Hope the border guard will survive through this and hopefully the border reopens soon. You think if this was southbound the Americans would beef up the border even more though?

By the way learn how to spell SHIRIKOV who is this shirakov


Amazingly on his first shift Kassian would have had a breakaway if Kesler knew how to pass. And he still got switched with Weiss. And note it is "Weiss" not "Wise".
