      No coincidence that Malala Yousafzai was to receive honorary Canadian citizenship today.

        I was told Canadians don't have or use guns. Must be an American causing trouble.

                @ArashMadani: CBC reporting the soldier shot at the War Memorial in Ottawa is a Reservist from Hamilton. His condition is not known at this time, per CBC.

                  Purely speculation on my part, but who wants to place odds on the impetus for this attack being a retaliation for Canada adding its six F-18 and entire pea shooter collection to the fight against ISIS?

                      This report suggests the same gunman who did the War Memorial shooting then ran to the Parliament, which from Google Earth looks only a block away. I don't know how far the Rideau Center, where the third shooting took place, is from the Parliament Hill complex.

                      Edit: The Rideau Center is a short distance away on the same street (Wellington).

                        No doubt -- ISIS called on jihadis to kill infidels, including we Canadians.

                        According to Tarek Fatah, three female jihadis are back in the country and running loose in my hometown.

                        Lost in the horror of these murders that some are still referring to as a “possible” terrorist attack, was the news on Saturday that three Muslim girls of Somali heritage, who wanted to travel to the Mideast and join ISIS in Syria as wives of jihadis, were back home and free.

                        The Toronto Star reported the teenage girls’ parents had tipped off the RCMP, who arranged to apprehend the teens in Turkey and return them to Toronto.

                        What was particularly disturbing was that instead of arresting and charging these three ISIS recruits, the RCMP simply sent them back into the community, under the care of their parents.

                          From Leafs radio guy Joe Bowen.

                          What is truly sad is that Parliament Hill will now become as secure as the Capitol.

                                NHL postpones Leafs-Sens game. Right move.

                                BTW, the video of the shooting in the hallway of the Parliament building -- the Conservative and NDP parties were caucusing on either side of that corridor.
