I am fuming! I came across this article on Facebook this morning at around 7:53 am.
Thank you. Man they really need to give more warning than this. Started at 5:30, just happened to wake up because of Leo. Otherwise I wouldn't have known.
The Active Shooters training started at 5:30 am. This was the first I had heard about it. EPS is doing the training in the following areas:
- Rogers Place (downtown 104 ave between 101 street and 104 st)
- City Hall ( down the street from Rogers Place)
- Commonwealth Stadium
Ok, I get City Hall, I don't understand why Commonwealth Stadium or Rogers Place. If we have an active shooter in the city, it would make sense to protect the Alberta Legislature or Refinery Row, especially if terror related. Even City Centre Mall makes sense as it is accessible to the public.
I will be writing a letter to the Police Commission as to voice my concerns on this and how it has been approached.
