Extra measures

So, this was in my Montreal Alouettes Facebook feed yesterday, referring to Sunday's decisive game:
Alouettes fans are asked to arrive early on Sunday as kickoff will be at noon, i.e. one hour earlier than usual. Sunday also marks the day that clocks are turned back an hour. Also, following last week's events, extra security measures will be in effect on Sunday. Bags will notably be searched at every stadium entrance.
Am I a bad person for seeing zero connection between a guy (or guys) who went after uniformed soldiers and members of Parliament in Ottawa, and anybody attacking a football stadium in Toronto? I mean, it's one thing if you have credible intelligence, but absent that, why is this game different? It's like the guy in my office who was afraid to go to DC earlier this week.

I mean, the Canadians are being way cooler (as in cooler-headed) about this than we would be, but it does seem like the "be afraid, be very afraid" mantra is seeping north of the border, too.

Probably don't want to mess up their steroid injection schedules ;-)
