There was a mass-shooting in Nova Scotia today/yesterday.
That kind of stuff doesn’t happen up here.
It’s getting national news coverage. It’s all that’s been talked about today, even with the pandemic and all its fallout.
But in the US, something like this would probably just be a headline on CNN. Maybe not even the major headline. The major headline would be Trump being an idiot in some form or another. This would be “18+ people killed in mass-shooting” as a smaller headline somewhere further down the page. A lot of people probably wouldn’t even click on it because we’re so damn desensitized to that kind of thing in the States.
