Re: Can the ‘Never Again’ movement turn the tide? (Rickter Scale, March 7)
If Rick Stiebel were a Canadian journalist he’d be asking how the criminal shooters around Sooke obtained guns, how shooters of students in a Quebec engineering school obtained guns, and why so many people are maimed or murdered in Canada by knives and baseball bats.
He’d be asking why the recent assault on a 12-year old girl in Victoria occurred, and why troubled people are not spotted before they kill.
Stiebel should ask why bullying is still a problem in schools despite decades of focused efforts.
Politicians are collectivists and do not teach respect for everyone. Perhaps worse, they spend taxpayer funds on junk they claim is art, on fanciness, and staff bloat, instead of on policing and re-education of exploiters.
In the world, tribal warfare such as in Africa and Yugoslavia – and B.C. a half millennia ago – are caused by collectivism.
Stiebel’s rants about things in the U.S. doesn’t help solve problems in Canada.
