Abstract

Tragedies as the recent shooting of RCMP officers in Moncton, New Brunswick, raise questions about why these occur and what can be done to prevent these horrible events. There are often many theories raised in the media and by special interest groups but in reality little is known about what are relatively rare incidents. A brief discussion of mass homicide in Canada including the history, factors involved, and strategies for mitigation are covered.

Keywords: mass homicide, mass shooting, Canada
