Canada’s Prime Minister said, ‘Terrorist’ murdered soldier ‘in cold blood’. This morning started off as a normal day in Ottawa, Ontario, around 9:52 am, a gun man fired at a soldier at the Canada War Memorial right by the Parliament in Ottawa (Downtown), the soldier was then transferred to The Ottawa Hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after. The gun man was shot and killed inside the Parliament by an Ottawa Police Officer. Who was the gunman? Why did he open fire? And was he acting alone? many questions such as these still remain large and will be answered in the coming days. The city (Ottawa) was under lock down pretty much the whole day and now Ottawa police has lifted the lockdown and stated there is no longer any danger to the public. The gun man’s aim wasn’t to harm the public but the government, was this a warning to tell Canada to stop them from going to war?. Earlier we were told there is a possibility that there were more than 1 gun man, 3 to be exact, now we are being told that there seems to be only one. Many schools near by was closed for the day, Ottawa University was also closed for the day and mid-term was postponed, while Carleton University which is a bit far from the crime scene remained opened.
Two Days Before in Quebec, Canada
Safety Minister Steven Blaney says the attack on twosoldiers in Quebec is clearly linked to terrorist ideology.
Quebec provincial police are confirming the hit-and-run attack in Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu was no accident. Lieutenant Guy Lapointe says the suspect sat in his car for more than two hours before running down the soldiers.
One of the men, identified as Patrice Vincent, 53, died overnight of his injuries, while the other is in stable condition.
