Attacks on CF in Canada: Latest from RCMP on #OttawaShooting

leave a comment »

This, from the RCMP (highlights mine):

The RCMP’s investigation of the October 22, 2014, terrorist attack in Ottawa is advancing and has revealed a great deal about Zehaf-Bibeau’s movements and actions prior to the attack.

The RCMP has identified persuasive evidence that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau’s attack was driven by ideological and political motives. Zehaf-Bibeau had prepared a video recording of himself just prior to conducting this attack. The RCMP is conducting a detailed analysis of the video for evidence and intelligence. You must understand that we cannot release this video at this time and I would ask for your patience in this regard.

The RCMP believes that the knife carried by Zehaf-Bibeau was retrieved from his aunt’s property in Mont Tremblant. Zehaf-Bibeau had lived there years earlier and appeared to have stored the knife on the property. We are still looking into the origin of the gun used by Zehaf-Bibeau. It is an old and uncommon gun. We suspect that he could have similarly hidden the gun on the property but our inquiries continue.

We have identified the source of funds for Zehaf-Bibeau’s pre-attack activities. Zehaf-Bibeau had been employed in the oil fields of Alberta and had saved his money. He had access to a considerable amount of funds. We are investigating all of his disbursements in the period leading up to the attack.

The RCMP is also investigating Zehaf-Bibeau’s interactions with numerous individuals in the days leading up to this attack. The investigation is focusing on whether these interactions could have contributed or facilitated, in any way, the terrorist attack subsequently committed by Zehaf-Bibeau.

Consistent with the principles of independent investigation where police shootings or use of force result in serious injury or death, the RCMP has asked the Ontario Provincial Police to take complete conduct of the investigation of the shooting of Zehaf-Bibeau inside Parliament. The RCMP is confident we will have an authoritative and detailed account of the shooting, including a complete reconstruction of the heroic actions of those involved, in the weeks to come.

This nationally scoped investigation remains exceptionally active and fluid. The RCMP undertakes to get as much information to the public as quickly as we can.

Bob Paulson
Commissioner

Attack on CF Troops in Canada: What Canada Is, and What It Isn’t

leave a comment »

Here, I worried about the worst in Canadians coming out following the attacks that killed two Canadian Forces members.

This is NOT what Canada and Canadians are ….

THIS is what Canada is and Canadians are …

These are neighbours & non-members of the mosque helping clean up.

Those guys in uniform?  Reportedly the base commander and base Sergeant Major from CFB Cold Lake dropping by to show support.

Well done everyone!
