    Thanks for Listening

    Had to read through a lot of comments to find any DETAILS! How is this reporting? How do you not say who perpetrated this heinous crime? Of course people immediately jump to thinking the dad snapped – but NO! It was (allegedly) the brother-in-law but 0 actual facts are provided? Awful enough story but made worse by awful lack of any actual news.

    Sincere Condolences. I hope they will focus on why there has been a spike in these kinds of terrible crimes in Canada such as Socioeconomic / Mental Health factors. We hear about the symptoms (i.e. the crimes) but rarely is there any news about the cause and resolution for them

    condolences to everyone involved, but something needs to be done to prevent future tragedies. We cant mourn every time a tragedy occurs…violence is only getting worse nowadays.

    CBC please treat these types of events with the same quick brief reporting we get on crime that involves First Nation communities and visible minorities.

    The reporting is needs to done better. None of this explains anything, except for whats going on in the community. The details are vague…my condolences to what's left of the father and his 4 children.

    Dirty scummy smear merchants. Making it appears as if the father did this.

    This is the first I'm hearing about this tragedy, so I don't get the background coaching story being as important as a basic factual report would be. I assume I've missed hearing about it earlier.

    It's feminism fault.

    What happened to people nowadays? If you can't work it out just walk away guys…media and social environment of the modern life have a big role on making people insane to this level. May God have mercy on the deceased…my heartfelt condolences…
