Did you read that more then likely all those under the rubble are all dead? Yesterday, we know someone was still alive. Yesterday, there were professional rescue crews willing to go in, but weren't allowed. Perhaps the dick who canceled the rescue attempts yesterday should go to the families of ones who died and tell them why no one tried to save them, WHEN PROSFESSIONALS wanted to go in.

This is why, and i quote from a BBC article:


Local residents were outraged when rescue crews suspended the search on Monday, warning that an escalator holding up portions of the second storey was in danger of collapse.

Specialised cranes and video-equipped robots designed for mine rescues are being brought in to help the emergency workers.

They will attempt to dismantle part of the structure from the outside.

Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty told the Canadian media the operation was fraught with risk.

"It is not unlike a house of cards... if you pull away at this wall in an effort to get access to somebody who is trapped there, it may cause other things to move and other things to tumble and crumble," Mr McGuinty said.

This i dont. Really? Are you really thinking about what yours saying, or did you read a OP title post and come in here all indignant and fired up?

I have no doubt these people have good intentions and want to get people out alive. But that simply does not make it the best idea.

Everything ive read tell me they called off the rescue temporarily to assess the situation and ensure more would not die. I cannot imagine any reason it would have been called off otherwise.

Im sure your simply convinced we're cowards who would rather let people die however. Some people just dont think.

Where did I state I thought anyone was a pussy? Other then retarded politicians?

Why quote from the BBC when I already stated I heard it on the radio, am640, from people who are at Elliot Lake. The only one fired up is you because you feel for the DERP American / Canadian troll bait.

Ok, then id love to see any quote, article, link or post you can provide that shows a politician called off the search for anything other than safety reasons. And not reasons to protect the rescue crew, but to protect those trapped underneath.

Shouldnt be hard. After all, you heard it on the radio.

How would you gung-ho wannabe heroes feel if , during your uneducated and emotionally-driven attempts to rescue people you actually caused more harm than good and people died because of the results of your actions?


If you continue to argue the other point after reading this, then you are a complete fool. This is nail on the head. You can't go rushing in and trying to save people immediately. What if YOU was the person to pull that rock away which causes the collapsed structure to collapse in on itself and kill every survivor?

If my loved one was under there of course the first reaction is GET THEM OUT NOW when in reality to complete a safe rescue it has to be properly thought out and executed to ensure the survival of those trapped.

I heard it on the radio, about 2 hours ago, breaking news....don't have a "link", don't care. You can take my statement and believe it, or not.

Doesnt it though?

Some people are so paranoid of the government that they'll believe anything. The thing is, while politicians lie, cheat and steal, they always try and look good while they are doing it. Im sure if whoever spidey is saying called off the rescue is for whatever reason found out by the public at large, they would never be re-elected if it was thought lives could have been saved otherwise.

Im really doubting his account of things, and after scouring google, i cannot see anything besides calling off for safety reasons. Im sure local caller was distraught and rightfully so. In times like that, sometimes people want someone to blame, and honestly i can see why someone would be mad at anyone calling things off, especially if their loved one is under. But as an above poster said, once your head clears, you will realize caution to be the safer route.

I believe you heard a distraught caller from the local area who had emotional links to someone under the mall.

How do they know the politicians intentions? I firmly believe he did the right thing and assessed the situation before endangering more lives, especially those trapped.

I don't remember who the individual was, or the company he owned. I just remember it is a respected company, as I stated, was involved in the Haiti earthquake rescue. I know mining rescue teams were ready to sign waivers to go in......but also, the person who was tapping yesterday has stopped, and reports are saying that person is likely dead. Professionals wanted to go in, and were not allowed. That person DIED without anyone attempting to get to him or her.....and that does not sit well in my books at all.

I hope there is a public inquiry about the entire situation, and to make things clear, I am Canadian myself and live a few hours from there....and before anyone suggests why didn't I go there, I just heard about this this afternoon.

If anything irresponsible turns out to have happened, i fully expect an inquest to be called. Im sure there will be one to find out why the building collapsed if nothing else.

Apparently a mini-earthquake? If so, why did nothing else happen but this? I suspect there will be a building contractor company up on charges very soon.

Why can't they get some mega construction vehicles or tanks and chip away at this stuff from the side? At least then there's a chance some would be saved. Aren't some of these machines strong enough that rescuer injury would be less of a concern (what a load of balogna -- this is the risk of public safety careers)? To tell people they're giving up... what a travesty.

Was the search actually called off or was it just suspended until the building stabilized? My prayers go out to all the people trapped and to their families who are distraught. What a terrible thing to happen!

Knowing that they are leaving you to die by starvation, lack of air or injuries is just horrible. The poor person trapped in their is fighting to stay alive as he has faith that they save them. Little do they know that they have turned their backs and now wait for death by starvation, lack of air, or succumb to injuries.

I want to you all to know that someone is there now, alone, in the dark tonight in Elliot lake under rubble fighting to stay alive. He there now as you site in your nice home and they quit on him.


jesus christ guilt trip much.. im in australia man I cant do anything
poor guy I hope it works out for him that sounds awful

They were applicable because several comments were made that first responders rushed into the Pile after 9/1, and didn't let anything stop them. They were just to show that EVERY rescue, whether people want to believe it or not can be stopped.


Fair enough. It is very common for first responders to be called back, or wait for more equipment, or wait for police or fire escorts. This whole Canada v. US stuff is stupid. What they did was extremely common. Personally, I still would not stand idly by if a loved one was in there, but I agree with you that this is common practice.

Justin Trudeau?

Oh my god please no. He is bad, but my biggest fear is he would be worse than his father. P.E.T. did more to divide Canada that the Bloc Quebecois could ever hope to.

Trudeau - the one who changed our justice system into a legal system, where the criminals get more rights then the victims....and the son sounds like about the same.
