Sorry for the (hopefully wrong) post I made about the soldier. No major news organization here in Canada is reporting that yet.

Still developing situation.

According to Canadian Post via Globe and Mail:

The outbreak of violence on Wednesday shortly before 10 a.m. (ET) sent MPs into hiding and all federal government buildings into lockdown.

Gunfire erupted at the National War Memorial, then moved to Centre Block and has also been reported at the Chateau Laurier hotel east of Parliament Hill.

Prime Minister Stephen Harper was with Veterans Affairs Minister Julian Fantino in a caucus meeting when the gunfire began, Mr. Fantino told the Toronto Sun Wednesday. Fantino credits a sergeant-at-arms for taking down a gunman. “All the details are not in but the sergeant-at-arms, a former Mountie, is the one that engaged the gunman, or one of them at least, and stopped this,” Fantino said.

Two sources told The Canadian Press that Kevin Vickers, the sergeant-at-arms for the House of Commons, shot an assailant. Other MPs also tweeted that a gunman was shot and killed, but police did not immediately verify the reports.

That’s still to be confirmed.

Meanwhile, AFP is reporting that NORAD has been put on alert to deal with any possible threats as a precaution (US and Canadian forces involved):

Air defenses on alert - US and Canadian air defenses have been placed on heightened alert. the North American Aerospace Defense Command (NORAD) “is taking appropriate and prudent steps to ensure we are adequately postured to respond quickly to any incidents involving aviation in Canada,” an offcial tells AFP.

All this came just a day after Canadian reports indicated that there was nonspecific terror chatter.

Jury convicts ex-Blackwater guards in 2007 Baghdad killings

A federal jury on Wednesday found four former Blackwater guards guilty of killing unarmed Iraqis at a Baghdad traffic circle, more than seven years after the shooting incident that outraged Iraqis and inflamed anti-American sentiment around the world.

The Washington jury found three of the ex-guards with the private security company, Paul Slough, Dustin Heard and Evan Liberty, guilty of voluntary manslaughter. It found a fourth guard, Nicholas Slatten, guilty of murder in connection with the first death at the circle.

In all, the jury found the four former guards guilty on nearly every count related to the incident.

19 Eclectic Cyborg  Oct 22, 2014 10:04:32am

A little more added info: The War Memorial in Ottawa also holds the Tomb of the Unknown soldier. It is guarded 24/7 by the Canadian military. The soldier who was shot was the one guarding it.

Actually the product is drugs. Specifically fear, anger and hate. The media sells the drugs. The addicts buy the products advertised by the media. (It doesn’t help that they’re high) The advertisers pay the media.

Meanwhile closer to home, Gov. Christie continues his best impression of Two-Face.

On the one hand, he’s all reasonable in dealing with the Ebola outbreak, and put together a team of people to address potential cases in the state, etc.

On the other, he wants GOPers to win, so that they can control the mechanisms of voting.

Yeah, had to do a double take too on that, but that’s what he said, and the implications are clearly disturbing and reveal what the GOP really wants to do - they want to depress turnout and minimize the rights of those who can’t easily get to the polls, or that once they’re there, that they can’t vote because more roadblocks are put up in their way.

Fear is a marketing strategy. With thousands of TV channels and infinite choice on the web, the only way of “breaking through the clutter” is basically scaring the living shit out of people. You’ll see it in the local TV promos:

“10 common foods that can spell DOOM for allergic kids - and the worst part is, you won’t know your kid is allergic until he’s FLATLINING ON THE SLAB!!! Watch this very special FOX UNDERCOVER investigation … or your children will DIE!!”

re: #53 Dr. Matt

We won’t have it much longer. CBC is a public media network and hated with a passion by ‘conservatives’, who run this country at the moment.

I made the mistake of reading comments on one of the CBC articles. “Arrest all suspicious people! We need strong government, not wimpy government!” Disheartening to find we have wingnuts up here as well.

I should realize that as H. Beam Piper noted, “The species is common and widely distributed,” and I’m just going to have to get used to that fact.
