FORT ERIE in Niagara, Ontario – “The residents of Fort Erie are shocked and horrified at the senseless shooting of innocent people in Buffalo.

“The knowledge that the shooter was racially motivated is extremely troubling.  There is no place for hate and racism in our societies. 

“We grieve with the families of those killed and maimed (this past Saturday, May 14th), and all residents of the City of Good Neighbours. We all have an obligation to speak out against and oppose the ideologies that promote hate, racism and discrimination.

“There are close family ties between our two communities, as well as deep friendships among our residents and those of Buffalo.  In many respects, we are one community, connected by our history, geography and culture.

“This type of incident has an impact on all of us on both sides of the border.”

    If a person accompanies someone into a store and that individual robs it or pulls a gun, although previously unbeknownst to them, they are often jailed as accessories to armed robbery and murder.
    IMO, people who promote these crazy conspiracy theories should be prosecuted. Free speech bedamned. If even one of these murderers mentions Sean Hannity, Alex Jones or Tucker Carlson in their manifestoes they also should be charged as accessories to murder. They can’t claim exemptions as freedom of the press because they say they are “entertainment” organizations, not journalists.
    That might dampen some of their ardor in spreading 💩
