2 dead in shooting attack at Canada's Parliament

OWoN: This is a real human tragedy. Canada is a lovely country with great people. To have an unarmed Canadian soldier on ceremonial guard massacred by an animal is a low blow and one which will cause a loss now of freedoms to all. The Politicos will want a major ring fence to shelter their pampered asses.

Deep commiserations to the family and companions of the soldier. We don't yet know the who or why. It may be a sad, attention seeking psycho.

But if it turns out to be a Muslim, no turning the other cheek.

2 dead in shooting attack at Canada's Parliament

OTTAWA, Ontario (AP) — A Canadian soldier standing guard at a war memorial in the country's capital was shot to death Wednesday, and gunfire then erupted inside Parliament, authorities said. One gunman was killed, and police said they were searching for as many as two others.

People fled Parliament by scrambling down scaffolding erected for renovations, while others took cover inside as police with rifles and body armor took up positions outside and blocked the normally bustling streets around the building.

Witnesses said the soldier was gunned down by a man dressed all in black with a scarf over his face. They said the gunman then entered Parliament, where dozens of shots rang out.

Ottawa police spokesman Chuck Benoit said two or three gunmen were believed to be involved in the attack. Gilles Michaud, assistant commissioner of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, called it a "dynamic, unfolding situation."

Ottawa Hospital said it received two patients, both listed in stable condition, in addition to the soldier.

The attack came two days after a recent convert to Islam killed one Canadian soldier and injured another in a hit-and-run before being shot to death by police. The killer had been on the radar of federal investigators, who feared he had jihadist ambitions and seized his passport when he tried to travel to Turkey.

Canada had raised its domestic terror threat level from low to medium Tuesday because of "an increase in general chatter from radical Islamist organizations," said Jean-Christophe de Le Rue, a spokesman for the public safety minister.

On Wednesday, Tony Zobl, 35, said he witnessed the soldier being gunned down from his fourth-floor window directly above the National War Memorial, a 70-foot, arched granite cenotaph, or tomb, with bronze sculptures commemorating World War I.

"I looked out the window and saw a shooter, a man dressed all in black with a kerchief over his nose and mouth and something over his head as well, holding a rifle and shooting an honor guard in front of the cenotaph point-blank, twice," Zobl told the Canadian Press news agency.

"The honor guard dropped to the ground, and the shooter kind of raised his arms in triumph holding the rifle."

Zobl said the gunman then ran up the street toward Parliament Hill.

Cabinet minister Tony Clement tweeted that at least 30 shots were heard inside Parliament, where Conservative and Liberal MPs were holding their weekly caucus meetings.

"I'm safe locked in a office awaiting security," Kyle Seeback, another member of Parliament, tweeted.

The top spokesman for Prime Minister Stephen Harper said Harper was safe and had left Parliament Hill. The U.S. Embassy in Ottawa was locked down as a precaution.

Officials also canceled two events in Toronto honoring Pakistani teenager and Nobel laureate Malala Yousafzai, including one in which she was supposed to receive honorary Canadian citizenship. The teenager was shot in the head by a Taliban gunman in 2012 for calling for schooling for girls.

Royal Canadian Mounted Police warned people in downtown Ottawa to stay away from windows and rooftops.

Scott Walsh, 21, a construction worker working in a manhole right in front of Parliament Hill, said he heard shots go off at the War Memorial.

"We're in construction and we're used to loud bangs. When people started screaming and running, that's when I clued, and I saw this guy running" with a gun, he said. "It was intense. I didn't think it was real. "

He said the gunman had long black hair with a scarf covering the bottom half of his face.

Gillies reported from Toronto. Associated Press writer Benjamin Shingler also contributed to this report.

    1. JC Collins has another excellent, in-depth take on this incident:

      http://philosophyofmetrics.com/2014/10/22/canadian-parliament-csi-attack/#more-1403

      He askes, "How many of us, the disorganized masses, have to die or be killed, by a system that cares little for humanity? How many will it take before the masses become organized?"

    2. Canada’s prime minister Stephen Harper two days ago raised the terror alert to Medium, whatever that means. Now there has been an attack in the country’s capitol. Can you say martial law?

      Canada’s prime minister Stephen Harper two days ago raised the terror alert to Medium, whatever that means. Now there has been an attack in the country’s capitol. Can you say martial law? Friends of mine on Facebook are of course blaming the “middle east terrorists”, Al-Quaeda, and whomever else they’ve been programmed to hate and fear.
      Please send light to Canada as we get swept up in this false-flag, fear mongering, Cabal-induced attempt to control the people.

  2. Ukraine mini-SITREP: very ominous developments

    "This short post is just to inform you of the latest developments in the war in the Ukraine.

    Following the use of a tactical ballistic missile against Donetsk by the Ukies, Zakharchenko has declared that the ceasefire was basically over.

    Strelkov has made an official appeal warning that according to this information the Ukies were massing troops in preparation for an attack. According to Strelkov, the Ukie plan is for a very short and very rapid "push" towards Donestk and the Russian border to make any Novorussian state non-viable and thus to negotiate from a position of force. True, Strelkov does have a record of exaggerating threats in order to minimize them, but this time there are some strong signs that his analysis is shared by the Russian military, and these signs are the most ominous signs of all.

    Russian sources - including the excellent Colonel Cassad blog - report that the voentorg aid-spigot has been fully re-opened including for some major deliveries. While, of course, I am very happy that the Novorussian resistance is getting much needed equipment (and specialists), this kind of full reopening of the voentorg also indicates to me that the Russian intelligence services have concluded that an attack is very likely, possibly very soon."

    A desperate push by the fascists in Kiev and Washington before winter sets in?

  3. Canada Parliament Shooting “Hoax”? False flag PRE-STATIONED CAMERAMEN? (Video)
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIzluqDXZvQ

    Full website post with multiple .gif’s and screenshots of the MULTIPLE cameramen pre-stationed for this “shooting”:
    http://dutchsinse.com/10232014-canada…
    Pre-stationed cameramen IN FRONT of each pillar, hiding from each others view (or trying to as best they can). One of the FOUR cameramen hiding manages to capture the other three also there. All there as the shooting supposedly happened real time.
    Then to top it off, they run down the hall to another room with at LEAST FOUR more cameramen and sound engineers carrying microphone booms.
    Again, all there as the shooting took place. Several pre-stationed and rolling footage.
