- Why do some people always bicker over whether it was terrorism or not? It was mass murder. Isn’t that enough?
- How could he be driving for as long as he did on Yonge Street (half an hour) – as far as he did (more than a kilometre) – and no one shot him, or rammed his van, or both?
- What do those early stories mean, when they say that he was known to police?
- Why do politicians always offer thoughts and prayers? Why don’t they instead offer policies and ideas that would prevent something like this?
- Who was that truly amazing cop who caught the killer without firing a shot? Where does bravery like that come from?
- Who are the ones who took pictures of victims to post on Twitter? Can we find them and shame them?
- Why do we always give these mass murderers what they want, and profile them? Can’t we, just once, lavish that much attention on the victims alone?
- Has anyone started a fund to help the families?
- Why do we need to hear from anyone other than the mayor and the top cop? Why do federal and provincial politicians insist on being seen at the press conferences?
- Why did this happen, and how can we make sure it never happens again?
