    Default Shooting at Canadian Parliament & War Memorial

    Major stuff going down in my city, Ottawa.




    Police are expanding their perimeter around Parliament Hill and the National War Memorial after at least two people were shot Wednesday morning.

    Journalists and members of the public have, as of 11:20 a.m., been herded inside buildings in the area of the shooting and there are several road closures around the area. The area in front of Parliament Hill and the War Memorial is cordoned off behind police tape, including Wellington St., and Elgin St. near the monument.


    Police have not confirmed whether they believe all suspects have been accounted for. However, police are telling the public and journalists that they should move back and remain in protected areas for their own safety.

    Buildings on Parliament Hill and many facing the Hill are on lockdown.

    Reports say the nearby Rideau Centre and the U.S. Embassy were also on lockdown. 1310News is reporting bridges in the area of Parliament Hill connecting Ottawa and Gatineau, are also closed.

    Obviously we have to go in and liberate Canada with freedom bombs, it's the only way
    Bushido is realised in the presence of death.
    This means choosing death whenever there is a choice between life and death.
    There is no other reasoning.

    Default Ottawa a false flag?

    Been watching the USA news hyping this. Two cops in Las Vegas get shot and killed point blank in a pizza joint. There was hardly any meDia hype, but it was considered domestic terrorism. Ottawa , being the capital of Canada, has one shooting and is hyped like a 9 11 on 10 22 at 9:52am. I giggle at the power that the Israeli, British, cia,intelligence have to trick another great nation into warner brothers
    hands. It's amazing that they get away with it without deviating from the play book.

    Crazy that the guard that past away sadly had a piece on him for authenticity sake but aren't allowed to have any bullets in it. Not like he probably had any time to react since he was a sitting duck for a surprise attack from a lone lunatic.

    We used to play guns when we were kids with imaginary bullets, but if someone shot you you could always say nah ah you missed or claim that your forcefield was up

    ​​​From prime minister and beyond, Canadians thank Penguins for show of support



    It was not a typical two-anthem night at Consol Energy Center Wednesday.

    But it hadn’t been a normal day in Canada, either, and the Penguins, who were preparing for a game against Philadelphia, felt a gesture of support was in order.

    That is why, in the wake of Canadian Forces reservist Nathan Cirillo being shot and killed near the National War Memorial in Ottawa, team officials decided to have anthem singer Jeff Jimerson perform ‘O Canada’ before the game, something that usually happens only when a Canada-based team is in town. Fans stood and sang the words with Jimerson as players bowed their heads.

    And plenty​ of​ people, especially those in Canada, noticed.

    That includes Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who described it as "a wonderful gesture" in a speech to Parliament Thursday.

    After thanking fellow Canadians and leaders of other nations, Harper mentioned that anthem.

    "... I wanted to convey all the good wishes that I heard personally not just from Canadians but from our friends outside the country. I heard from President Obama, from Prime Minister Abbott, from Prime Minister Netanyahu, through a statement from Prime Minister Cameron. We've heard these expressions across the world.

    "I think we were all as Canadians touched by the wonderful gesture shown last night at the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey game. So thank you to our friends in the United States and around the world."

    The reaction has been “overwhelming,” said Tom McMillan, the team’s vice president of communications.

    He said that in addition to messages sent directly to the team – in both of Canada’s official languages – the Penguins have heard the anthem has been discussed at length on Canadian talk radio. They even have been fielding interview requests for Jimerson.

    McMillan noted that the Penguins’ farm team in Wilkes-Barre also had received several expressions of gratitude for performing ‘O Canada,’ even though the Baby Penguins had no connection to what happened at Consol Energy Center.

    “It’s been constant,” McMillan said. “Non-stop.”

    The messages have come in all forms – from texts to tweets to phone calls – with a few directed to a portion of the Penguins’ website that deals with anthem singers.

    One of those calls, he said, came Thursday afternoon from Donna Speer, widow of former Penguins forward Billy Speer.

    “We’re all stunned, in many ways,” McMillan said. “You’re trying to do the right thing. We weren’t thinking about what response we would get.”

    The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette was also receiving emails from Canadians who wanted to thank the Penguins.

    “Thanks to the people of Pittsburgh for noticing Canada had a bad day. I was touched, my family across Canada was touched, as were other Canadians,” wrote Bern McNicholl of Vancouver, British Columbia.

    “It was, and remains, a beautiful gesture of friendship and support - and one which will not be soon forgotten,” said Eric Hindson of Calgary, Alberta.

    Countless photos and videos of the gesture went viral on social media. A blurry picture of the anthem’s performance from a Post-Gazette reporter’s Twitter account was retweeted or marked as a favorite over 1,200 times. Canadian athletes including PGA golfer Brad Fritsch and Calgary Flames right winger Brian McGrattan offered thanks or praise via Twitter. Overnight, “Pens” and “Pittsburgh” trended on Twitter in Ottawa.

    the parliament had it coming tho
    it attracts alot of tourists and anybody can just walk through the front door.
    Theres a couple of unarmed security guards and thats the first and last line of defense.

    The white house doesnt play ...they are armed to the teeth
    Canada should take notes.

    now you cant wear your uniform in public off duty
    sometimes you dont have time to take all your kit off on break or if you a pressed for time.
    Plus theres that pride of wearing it.
    The day before there was an attack on a couple of soldiers
    another metally ill isis inspired guy rammed his car into a warrant officer

    RIP CPL Nathan Cerillo & Warrent Office Vincent

    I notice the discrepancy between the usa news and the Canadian news
    I feel the American news made a meal out of the situation
