The shocking headline in the National Post is gripping the country. It has everything: climate chaos, cute little girl, allusions to literature and television, drama and pathos.

Mr. Webster said he and wife were impressed at how maturely their daughter handled the situation. She didn’t cry, though he suspects she might have been in shock.
