Soldier goes gunning for PM, Canadians yawn

Sifting Saturday’s news, I’m struck by the negligible popular response to the arrest of an Armed Forces member on Thursday in Ottawa. Corey Hurren used a pickup truck to crash the gate of Rideau Hall, the residence of the Governor-General; Justin Trudeau and his family have been living in a house on the grounds while the PM’s residence is renovated.

Neither the Governor-General nor the Trudeaus were home. Nobody got shot, although Hurren was armed to the teeth. He’s now facing 22 criminal charges.
