Shot a man at the Canadian War Museum, now inside the building at Parliament Hill with a long shotgun...

Tough to hear these things lately. The radicalization will continue, and those are the hardest to identify.

This is nasty.
A journo is tweeting from inside the bldg that they are pretty scared right now.

“Police have locked down Parliament and Ottawa Police tactical officers have arrived, pointing guns at journalists and ordering them to the ground. Journalists were put into lockdown at the foyer in front of the House of Commons,” reports the Globe and Mail’s Josh Wingrove.

Why are they pointing their guns at journalists and ordering them into lockdown?

Maybe they don't want them to do their jobs properly.

Maybe they don't want them to do their jobs properly.
Or maybe they don't want them to get shot with an active shooter still loose.

There are plenty of reporters continuing to report from the scene.

maybe the ones reporting that reporters had guns pointed at them are obliging their salaried duty of generating readership/clicks through an elaborated sense of drama.

CBC just reported that there are 90 people who have returned from Syria and have had their passports taken away, and are being monitored as being radicalized.

There has been shootings in Parliament before, but now it is reported that there are multiple shooting areas. Multiple shooters implies planning, not some lone crazed guy.

Ottawa police issued a statement. Three separate shooting incidents. Once inside parliament. One at the war memorial. One at Rideau Centre

You just know that Harper will leverage this incident to ram through all kinds of new legislation and omnibus bills to further destroy Canada's rights and freedoms, which is fundamentally what the terrorists want.

Well done on inserting an even stupider meta-comment.
It kinda sickens me that this board turns every tragic shooting in the US into an uninformed political attack on the American people, but then expects somber reflection on its own tragedies.

But that's a discussion for another day. This was a sad event indeed.

It is sad. Unlike the states where the first few clauses need a constitutional amendment to change or remove (or maybe they just ignore it), the Charter has a clause to allow legislation which specifically contravenes it to enacted regardless. It hasn't really been in the news much over the past decade but the "notwithstanding" clause it there for use. I really hope that things remain calm though. This is quite alarming, but thankfully not on a larger scale.

Obviously you won't be provoking that exact thing by posting that.
