Gunman was supposedly wearing 'Arabic scarf''.


Where exactly did you hear that?

What sort of a tool wears an Arabic Scarf when attempting to take out a government target in public?

According to my personal copy of the DHS's Racial Profiling 101, I can only think or 3 possibilities:

1. They're either terrorists from the Middle East, presumably ISIS or
2. Not terrorists from the Middle East, but made to look like it.
3. Home-grown nut-jobs, of Middle-Eastern decent, with a death wish riding the current wave of beheadings.

Have I missed anyone?

Canada, what ever America would do in this situation, do the opposite.

Cheers

Even though I don't live in Ontario, I will surely tell any of my family there to exert caution.

Proof these Extremists and the idiology they are forcing are Scum, this lad was simply honoring his fallen comrades who fought for freedom but these terrorists think we should not be free, there religion tell's them to strike us on the neck, it is well past time we drew our own sword's and took them all down about 12 inches for trying to take our freedom from us and steal our world out from under us.

This attack is an attack upon the very foundation of our cultures and it is time that our govnenment recognized allowing these poeple into our country's is like slitting our own childrens throats.

My blood is boiling and I would dearly love to take revenge upon them but maybe I just need to calm down as most of them are innocent as well or are they, remember they are merely the hardliners in a culture that all believe this to be correct.

This is terrible and disturbing. I hope they catch the SOB who did this. We in the west need to check our policy of domestic blind spots to dangerous members of our community who share affiliations to middle eastern militant groups. I doubt this was a ginger Roman Catholic. They never seem to be.

I hope the family is given the support they need through this. Thoughts and prayers with them...

Reading reports of another gunman on the roof of a building.....being tweeted about from those on the ground there. They are moving others inside buildings now. Seems this may come out as a planned attack by a couple or more people.

The local reporter on lockdown talking to CNN live via phone (my last link) is saying the Canadian government took a lot of heat trying to deal with homegrown terror after last week's incident.

It is currently before parliament and will be passed within days, most assuredly as the Conservative Party has a majority and can pretty much do what they want so I doubt this is a false flag kinda event.

They're saying on CBC, it was somebody dressed in some sort of head dress . . . 'Arabic looking' is how they explained it. He got out of his car at the memorial, shot the soldier with his double-barreled shotgun. He then hopped a fence, hijacked a car, drove rather quicky toward the parliament building where an exchange of gunfire took place.

Apparently he's dead but they're still looking for somebody dressed similarly who didn't hop the fence.

This is related to the attack on two soldiers in Quebec .i have to admit ATS was ahead of the curve on this as there was a thread about an attack or some type of threat happening in Canada, we have been immune from this type of Muslim terrorism but this brings home what other country's have been dealing with for years from these assholes.


First, you know nothing about the motives of the person involved, For all you know it could be a fascist terrorist. And, the term "Muslim terrorism" is a nonsense. This has little to do with Islam or peaceful Muslims around the world. This is extremism, and even if it does turn out that these people are acting under some delusional version of a religious ideology THEY ARE NOT MUSLIM.

RT coverage



A soldier has been shot at a war memorial in Ottawa, Canada, prompting a lockdown of Parliament Hill as police try to locate the gunman. Further local reports have stated that shots were also fired inside the Parliament building.

“So I’m locked down in Center Block on Parliament Hill after at least one shooter burst in and opened fire,” local reporter Josh Wingrove stated. “I heard dozens of gunshots and the smell of gunpowder is heavy in the hallways right now.”

Wingrove also reported seeing a motionless body inside the parliament building, which he could not confirm to be either dead or alive.

Some 30 shots were fired inside the building, an eyewitness told Reuters. The gunman was subsequently chased by police into the center block of the building.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper managed to exit the building safely.

Associated Press Television News journalist Jorge Barrera reported that police are in possession of a photograph of the gunman, who reportedly has dark skin and long black hair. Barrera also tweeted that police have the suspect’s cellphone.



As asked above about arabic scarf - there was a tweet published by the BBC in their coverage that it appeared to be a black and white headscarf.

The problem with this is that there will be a police terrorism response, and people on the ground might have no idea about what the response is. That "gunman" on the roof being tweeted is MORE LIKELY a member of the security response team.

Either way, some of the police reporting during this will have another meaning. For example they might have intel on cues which might trigger something else, and so they will want to prevent that from being reported openly. They'll also want to clear nosy idiots away from the location, so conveniently ignoring something or highlighting something else might help to clear the streets.

Rumors going around that there might of been on fact 3 shooters.

One is reportedly down. Another may be on a roof and another? may have hijacked a car to get away. I'm not sure if that's 100% accurate obviously just passing on the tidbits i'm hearing on CJAD 800 Montreal.

This is absolutely Crazy !!!

Police say the shooter is on roof of building at Metcalfe and Sparks 1 block from Parliament Hill

Police snipers would be on the roof. This is to be expected. Unless...

Good point. But the Police were reportedly moving people away from the building in question, and out of sight.

Believe me, if you want Canada in a lock-down, you will see nothing but a rapid spread of fascism, spread by fear, ideology and racism.


That's what people tell me but how can you be so sure? For me it's a no brainer. Lock them out of our country, tear down every mosque and ban the Muslim religion from our country until they get their # together. I don't understand this "freedom of religion" when this particular religion is designed to be evil and breeds terrorists. I wish I was a dictator for a day, I would make this right. It's really very simple. Get out!
