    The border between Canada and the US has to be shut down. Guns, drugs, human trafficking, etc. is coming across and there is only one thing to do “let the flooding begin”.

    Shut the border? Why don’t we just build a concrete wall around Canada? Shutting the border is not the solution. Guns and drugs will always be a problem. I don’t think there is a reasonable solution.

    Drugs in South Stormont at a rural dwelling with a bunch of guns improperly stored? Poppycock, I says. The Long Saultians are more known for the drink and the meth and loose Debbie chicks.

    I remember a little bit of a movie that starred US actor Roy Thines back in the 1960’s about young people on drugs in a small town. I think that he played some sort of a social worker or something like that but showed that drugs were everywhere even to the small towns. It is all to do with the break down of society and I have said that many times over. Society is finished and getting worse.

    Watch Reefer Madness Jules, it’s a classic.

    Yeap, we’re all going to hell in a handbasket.

    I’m curious why the police haven’t released the names of those caught? We release names for jay-walking but when it’s something of community interest there is no information. I understand when there are victims involved such as domestic violence or minors but that’s not the case here. Enquiring minds want to know.

    Generally it’s because of an ongoing investigation or they’re getting the bad guys to inform on other bad guys and don’t want those bad guys knowing who’s been picked up.

    Marc Houde it may be because there are those rich people in Cornwall and area who are in this kind of business and I know because I found out plenty from people about who was really behind all this garbage.

    Mr. Oldham I have never taken drugs in my life and never will. I don’t need refers or anything at all to be funny. I have seen enough of what happens to people when they are on drugs and want no part of it at all.

    Or it could be for the reason admin stated…..ongoing investigation.
