  1. He know whats coming

  2. There we go. Rats start running from the sinking ship.

  3. A few weeks ago, Premier McNeil wanted an independent inquiry into the shooting, and now he’s retiring? Is it just me or is this odd?

    • There will be no real inquiry, this whole thing reeks of an Intelligence operation.

    • @xxxwindsor It never sat well with me on day one, and now it reeks quite bad!

      Mark Furey served as Justice Minister for several years. He stalled the inquiry. Then was shuffled to another position, and then another position in 3 months.

    • They had legislation ready to rock as soon as the news broke. The bodies were warm and we had no details on the firearms used, yet new gun legislation was rolled out. If that doesn’t tell you everything you need to know, I don’t know if there’s any hope for you.

    • its very odd

  4. liberal mouthpiece to the end

  5. Fool I love this day. The best day yet.

  6. The cover up happening in Nova Scotia is terrifying to watch for the rest of Canada. It is very very scary stuff.

      What’s the cover up?

      @Richard Marr The RCMP coverup of the largest mass shooting in Canadian history.

      @Anthony Cooper
      Ok, wasn’t sure what you were talking about. Someone else said it might have something to do with a twelve year old babysitter.
      I believe there’s a huge cover up. I had dealings with the RCMP over drug dealers and informants myself personally.
      It really opened my eyes as to what levels of our public service protect drug dealers. RCMP, CPS, Town Council’s, Town Police, and Provincial Politicians. All of them seemed like they answered to someone else. It seems like they’re all in the drug game.
      I don’t want to say too much, I certainly don’t want to get wacked.

    Titanic, they’re starting to jump ship

    He is such a leader. Running from the inquiry. Who paid the shooter? That’s all we need to know to see who was behind it.

    you should have quit long ago.

  10. I look forward to a thriving Nova Scotia

    This news shocked me, since there’s no current scandal. probably will be one in the next few weeks that’ll arise from the waters..

  14. Can we get a Premier who actually works to better NS instead of sipping coffee with the status quo

  15. I wonder if he has an ankle bracelet just like Trudeau!

  16. He’s way too nervous.
    Something’s up!

    • that or hes unhealthy (with those deep breaths) less sitting on the beach and more exercise doing yard work will fix that

      5:07 i thought he was gonna cry lol

  17. Wow !…..somebody has something on this corrupt politician.
    He has to be corrupt he’s a Liberal.

  18. If only Trudeau would follow suit.

    Give every four-year-old a mask for the fake pandemic.

  20. He is on the wrong side of history. Left too many Nova Scotians angry.
