This article notes the town recently legalized liquor. Another article said a shipment of alcohol had just arrived. It's an isolated town of a few hundred people in the arctic tundra. What else is there to do?

"Although these are individual 'one-off' actions, it continues to place Kimmirut and its residents under siege," Superintendent Hilton Smee said in a news release.
So IOW there is no siege - it's just a violent town.

Police say it also highlights the need to ensure the safe handling and storage of firearms.
You have to be kidding me.

"Suspect (or whatever actual verb was) alcohol was involved."
Innit always, or almost always, 99.44% of the time, irregardless (use of that is quite deliberate) of location?

The incident ended when a group of about 10 people made a citizen's arrest and held the man until an RCMP team from Iqaluit arrived.

Um, so, there is crime somewhere and the local citizens oppose it. This is "under siege"?

So a guy with a .22 shoots up a police building. The police hide, and citizens decide to kick the guys ass.

..and the town is considered under siege. What an interesting place canada is.

Gotta love those informed comments under the article. "Three incidents [with four Mounties] since 2007? How is that Under Siege bluh bluh bluh."

It's a community of 400 people. Like, in the past 5 years, that's one Mountie shot at per 100 people. If that rate was Canada-wide, that would be almost 350,000 attempts on Mounties' lives in a half-decade. And 87,500 dead Mounties.

(Okay, it's not really fair to scale up from that small a number, but that should just illustrate how bad the town is. A bunch of schoolteachers left after the previous incident, the one where the attached houses were shot up, because they didn't feel safe in a little town where people get drunk and take pot-shots at cops. The NWT and Nunavut have a much higher gun homicide rate than the rest of Canada, and it's a continuing problem.)

Install the internet, they can fill all that spare time taking shots at other people on Farq.

Though the article doesn't explicitly say so, it sounds like the town's police force consists of only 2 people. Since the third one had to be flown in from the territorial capital.

This is where the town pays $28 for a head of lettuce, and $40+/lb for steak.

It might be that the people there have a lot of anger and frustration, and some of that is boiling over to the officials, thanks to a monopoly on their food shipments.

Actually, without Obama working to un-do the damage Bush had done, we would have already fallen into the abyss.

BSABSVR. Except for the ever so tiny detail that Mr. Obama has not been useless at all in undoing the almost insurmountable damage Bush-Cheney did both foreign and domestic.

Designing a plane requires intelligence. Flying one does not.

And I don't think Bush was in the Air Force.

Be easy on him on that one ... though you are completely correct, the island in question was in living memory recent times part of the Northwest Territories.

Not when people were being drafted to go to Vietnam. Then you needed to be the son of a congressman with a lot of pull and connections to get into the national guard, and having a former senator as grandfather also helped. Poppy Bush on the other hand joined the airforce to fight in WWll the day he turned 18.
