Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, the slain 32-year-old suspected killer of a Canadian Forces soldier near Parliament Hill, was a labourer and small-time criminal – a man who had had a religious awakening and seemed to have become mentally unstable. Mr. Zehaf-Bibeau was born in 1982 and was the son of Bulgasem Zehaf, a Quebec businessman who appears to have fought in 2011 in Libya, and Susan Bibeau, the deputy chairperson of a division of Canada’s Immigration and Refugee Board. The two were divorced in 1999.
He didn't fight in Libya. His father may have.
In 2011 he was being charged with a mugging in BC.
He has never expressed such remorse about the victims of the extra judicial drone killings.
We are lucky our gun laws in Canada prevented this person from having an automatic weapon like those available in the US.
World leaders should be sending condolences to the Canadian people. We have lived under this government and eight years of complete and total mismanagement.
The Barbarians are inside the gates. Sending Jets to bomb Iraq will not help

Did you see Thomas Mulcairs speech after? God that was bad too. He was trying to purposely feign calm with the fake smiles and message to not be intimidated but man, it was awkward. None of them seem to have any fire in their bellies. Oh yea, we're talking Canadian politicians. At least the Brits put on good theatrics.

I was listening today on the radio how the Canadian Parliament stood and applauded the Sgt at Arms who killed the shooter.
This was just after listening to how the event in Fergeson has now shown through autopsy and careful investigation by the DOJ and Holder that the Police Officer didn't do anything wrong.
My immediate thought was,
if an Arab terrorist shooter
started shooting up congress
and a white Sgt at Arms shot and killed him
There would be an immediate investigation
to discredit and ruin the Sgt as a racist.
There would be no standing ovation, just derision
and lots of media coverage about gun control
and the racism of white police.
The DOJ and Holder and the current administration in the white house would be on it faster than syrup on a pancake.
That is what the US has come to and I have no doubt that this would be the scenario in the US, unlike Canada

Keep your US racism to yourself, Canada is not like that. Our police dont target by skin colour.
We passed well beyond skin colour(tho not fuily achieved) discrimination.
Terrorist, whatever skin colour they are, need to be stopped.
I would have praised the person whoever stopped him, the skin colour of either don't matter here.
Was this attack terrorism? Seems to me to be the work of a deranged lunatic as opposed to an act of terrorism.
