Ha ha, Hugh McNeill, but gun advocacy aside, this sort of menace is very serious. It’s like the machete menace. We know there are lots of pro-IS in all our communities. Think this isn’t related? Of course, it is. They feel emboldened to use such methods to intimidate. We’ve already seen examples of machete attacks.

I too was personally menaced with a chainsaw by a man police covered up for repeatedly until I had to move. One sergeant said he spells his name “just like the famous Ukrainian terrorist” whatever that means. No charge, of course, even after I was attacked by three hooded men as I got into my car after work and he told police he sat in the parking lot for a week prior to the attack “to try to figure out her schedule”. All police did was told me it was no longer safe for me to return on campus to work without 24/7 police protection. Like a nobody instructor of conscience could afford that.

Where are the chainsaw control advocates ? Every chainsaw should be registered as well as anyone who wants to own or use a chainsaw has to be licened. As well a national chainsaw registry and hedge clippers ought to be included as well. The government is falling behind when it comes to public safety. For years I’ve been lobbying for a national cutlery registry as forks and spoons made Libby Davies FAT.
