GLOBAL NEWS – RCMP SAY OFFICERS WON’T ENTER FORT MCMURRAY HOMES LOOKING FOR GUNS
Sgt. John Spaans said Tuesday that officers have taken one or two guns found in public places, but are not going into homes looking for more.
He said he’s not sure if the decision had anything to do with what happened in High River during the floods. “That’s a decision that came through our unified command. I don’t know the rationale.”
