The armchair conclusion over there so far seems to be that
1. the Mounties are very tight-lipped and don't like to say anything, and definitely not anything inaccurate they might have to take back, so if they've come out and said it was sabotage, it almost certainly was.
2. It seems like the most likely method really was someone literally climbing up a tower with an angle grinder and going to town. Which means
3. They either had no idea of how insanely dangerous it is to cut a cable under that much tension, or they were insane. It was suggest the search for the perpetrator should begin by following the crows to see if they've found any severed limbs caught in the treetops.
