Sure, whatever you say, man. Islamic terrorists killing infidels in the name of Allah, but we should call it by another name? What shall we call it then? Let's be politically correct so as not to offend muslims and call it simply, "extremism," right? Is that the goal? I don't see Hindu, Jewish or Christian armies out there beheading anyone, let alone muslims. Not yet anyways!


No, we should WAIT UNTIL WE KNOW THE FACTS.
You do not know who these people are, their motives or their ambitions. Therefore you cannot say anything about "Muslim extremism".

Won't you look incredibly stupid if it turns out these people are radical far right extremists? You do know there are potentially thousands of them too, right?

I read where the gunman in Parliament was shot by the sergeant at arms. If they meant THE sergeant at arms, then it was this guy:


Kevin Vickers.


He does not look like a man to be trifled with.

Thanks for all your input.

The Chateau Laurier is next to the parliament buildings, and the war memorial is between them across the street. CBC reporting numerous gunmen.

Whoever posted about Mumbai-style attack seems to be correct, imo.

How do we get them out? How do we get our voices heard? Enough standing around, time to take our country back before this escalates

Agreed!

Let's just keep this thread focused on the events as they unfold instead of jumping to conclusions.

It was in fact Kevin Vickers who shot the suspect. It was just reported on CJAD 800.

He's a legendary Canadian Sharpshooter.

Well, Canada, like Scandinavia, is anti-police state. So while we have security, we're not all about disallowing the public from parliament and such, or intimidating them away.

Well, at least its that way for now...

And the extreme xenophobic nationalism begins...

Tell me oh wise one, what do you do with the hundreds of thousands o CANADIAN citizens who are also Muslim? Let me guess, you propose "defending" your freedoms by removing freedoms?

Ignorant right wing nonsense at its worst.

All schools in the area have now been placed on lockdown as well. Shelter in place.

That's what I thought. He's a tough Canuck. Good for him.

What jumping to conclusions? The shooter wore blue pants. Who the hell wears blue pants? Socially inept mofos. sarcasm off.

No, we know who did this. Muslim terrorists. Bottom line. Time to pull your head out of the sand. It's happening.

No....by all means lets not offend anyone by profiling them. Lets just let them continue killing so we don't make anyone upset...well at least all Muslims will be safe from the killing right? I mean unless the killer interviews them then they won't know if they are extreme or not.

I just heard on CNN that the soldiers were doing some sort of drills. Did I hear that right?

What sort of drills?

Ottawa Police are reporting another shooting incident at Ottawa's Rideau Center.

Seems like this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Press reporting that the second soldier at the war memorial ran for cover. The guns they hold are do not hold live ammunition. Sadly, they were sitting ducks.
