The Member of Parliament for Portage-Lisgar says Wednesday's shooting on Parliament Hill will be something she'll never forget. Candice Bergen was with the Prime Minister and other Conservative MPs during their weekly caucus meeting at Centre Block when the shooting broke out. "We didn't know what was going" explains Bergen who says initially the group thought the gun shots were just noises coming from nearby construction. "We all realized very quickly that they were gun shots going on right outside the room that we were in." She goes on to say it was about fifteen/twenty minutes before MPs were given some sense of what was going. "Definitely those first few moments were very very frightening." Bergen adds the group was kept inside that meeting room for about ten hours before the entire area was secured. She is appreciative of the security officers on the Hill and members of the RCMP that rose to the occasion.

Bergen adds it's interesting to see how these tragedies inspire politicians to set aside bipartisanship.

In his address to the nation Wednesday, Prime Minister Harper said that Canada will not be intimidated by the the tragic events that unfolded this week. Not only was Cpl. Nathan Cirillo shot and killed at the National War Memorial before the shooter stormed Parliament, but earlier in the week Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent was killed and another solider injured during an ISIS inspired attack in Quebec. Bergen says she agrees "Whole-heartedly" with the Prime Minister and believes this week's events are evidence that Canada is not immune to these threats.

"This isn't just an attack on individuals. It is an attack on Canada as a nation in terms of our values, what we represent; freedom, respect and human rights for all." Bergen adds Canada will not give in, noting in fact that the week's events will strengthen the country's resolve. "We're going to double and redouble our efforts and those of our national security agencies to make sure that we're doing everything we can do identify and counter these threats. We're just going to say 'No. You will not change us, you will not change how we live.' " She says in any way that government can, it will protect Canadians.

When asked where government goes from here, Bergen said there is still a lot of unknown information and is certain that as law enforcement learns the details about the individual and what occurred, it will help form some of those the next steps. She explains that while there are soldiers en route to Iraq to begin air missions with Canada's allies to fight ISIS, and those operations need to be supported, there is work to do here at home. "Look at the threats, where those threats are coming from and give our law enforcement agencies every tool they need to be able to identify and stop it. That would be our key priority at this time." Bergen adds the safety and security of Canadians is top of mind for the country's leaders and will be moving forward. We asked the MP if legislation would be required to allow security forces to act sooner when threats arise.

Meanwhile the Conservatives plan to expedite changes to the C-SIS Act, allowing the agency more power to track terror suspects abroad.

Goaltenders Adam Vander Linden and Devon Fordyce made 75 saves combined as the OCN Blizzard beat the Winkler Flyers 1-0 in the shootout on Friday night. Blizzard forward Rhett Law scored the only goal of the six round shootout, handing the Flyers their second shootout loss in as many games.

Playing the first of two straight home games against the Blizzard, the Flyers looked to get back in the win column after falling 4-3 in a shootout to the Winnipeg Blues on Tuesday night.

 The Flyers had many great chances to score in the opening period but were unable to capitalize on their chances. The two teams skated into the first intermission scoreless despite Winkler outshooting the Blizzard 17-11 through 20 minutes.

With end to end action the entire game, both goaltenders stood tall and kept the game 0-0 throughout regulation and into the five minute overtime period. Despite the lack of goals, this contest was as exciting a game as you could ask for.

Blizzard forward Rhett Law scored the deciding goal in the sixth round of the shoot-out and that proved to be the difference as OCN took game one of the weekend series 1-0.

Adam Vander Linden (3-1-1), who was credited with the shut-out, made 35 saves through 65 minutes of play as the Flyers out-shot the Blizzard 40-35 throughout regulation and overtime.

Winkler went 0-for-5 on the power-play and 4-for-4 on the penalty-kill.

The two teams will go at it again Saturday night in Winkler. Puck drop at the Winkler Recreation Complex is 7:30pm.

Tristan Keck scored his second goal of the game with 9.9 seconds left in overtime to lift the Winkler Flyers to a 2-1 home ice victory over the Selkirk Steelers.

Adam Vander Linden kicked aside 29 of the 30 shots he faced while earning his second victory of the season.

With two days off since their last game, the Flyers returned home for their first meeting of the season against the Steelers. After beating Selkirk twice during preseason, the Orange and Black were poised to do the same during the regular season.

The Flyers took the play to Selkirk in the opening frame and drew first blood with 5:57 left in the period. Defenseman Connor Hamonic passed the puck up to Shawn Pachet who found Tristan Keck up near the Steelers blueline. Keck then cut to the middle of the ice and fired a wrist shot between the legs of the Selkirk defenseman and over the shoulder of the goaltender giving the Flyers a 1-0 lead.

Winkler outshot the Steelers 17-6 through the first 20 minutes, but were forced to settle for only a 1-0 lead heading into the intermission. Selkirk managed to outshoot the Flyers 12-6 in the second period but the Flyers still led the game 1-0 heading into the third.

The Steelers were able to tie the game at one, 5:38 into the third period and with the score remaining tied through regulation, the game was headed for overtime.

With the five minute overtime period nearly at and end, Tristan Keck was able to send the home crowd happy for the second time this season. Skating down the left wing, Keck made his way towards the front of the net and scored his second goal of the game over the right shoulder of Steelers goaltender Nathan Park to secure the 2-1 victory. Evan Last and Connor Hamonic drew the assists on Keck’s third goal of the season.

Adam Vander Linden had another strong game in goal for Winkler making 29 saves while improving his record to 2-0. Winkler out-shot Selkirk 34-30 overall. The Flyers were 0-for-3 on the power-play and 2-for-2 on the penalty-kill.

The Flyers (2-1) will host the Dauphin Kings (2-0) on Friday, September 26th in their next game. Puck drop at the Winkler Recreation Complex is 7:30pm. Winkler had a 2-2 record against the Kings last season.
