Maybe. Got this email from officer Ian Shardlow this morning:
The estimates that I have received is that we destroyed approximately 3-4000 lbs of ammo and now have approximately 2-3000 lbs in our possession for destruction. We had enough ammo in the first instance that we had to arrange for a temp magazine type storage facility because we could not store in the Detachment.
We had to large ammo burners going steady for several days, and have arranged for one to come back in the coming weeks.
All of this ammo was voluntarily turned in to the RCMP after the residents had returned home.
Although maybe not. All this ammo was not, as per Gunter's implication, taken during the same sweep as the guns. It was voluntarily given up for disposal afterwards. Probably because it was water-damaged. So I will leave it to my readers: does Lorne Gunter get his ice-cream cone (should he claim his ice-cream cone. I'm obviously not buying one on-spec)?
And, seriously, does somebody up in High River own a cannon or two?
