Libertarian leader condemns Moncton shootings

Libertarian leader in northern Alberta condemns Moncton shootings - Edmonton Journal:

June 5, 2014 - "Recently nominated federal Libertarian Party [of Canada] leader Tim Moen, a fire captain in Fort McMurray, was stunned Thursday to learn a man sought in the shooting deaths of three Mounties has shared a link on Facebook to one of his campaign ads.

"The subject of a manhunt in Moncton, N.B., Justin Bourque shared an image on March 19 of Moen beside an ad in which he stated: 'I saw a movie once where only the police and the military had guns. It was called Schindler’s List'....

"Describing himself as feeling sick to his stomach over the Moncton violence, Moen said, 'As an emergency services worker myself, I am heartbroken and feel like the wind has been knocked out of me by what happened to these individuals who put themselves in harm’s way and paid the ultimate sacrifice.

"'I’d like to take this opportunity to strongly condemn the shooter’s actions and those of anyone who seeks to needlessly harm and threaten the lives of the brave men and women in uniform who put their lives on the line protecting our communities every day.'

"Moen, who was working at his job as a firefighter on Thursday, also said that Bourque was not a member, nor had he ever donated money to the Libertarian Party.

"'Consideration for life and safety is the No. 1 principle of both responsible gun ownership and libertarianism as an ideology,' Moen said."
