Canadian Parliament Building Shooting

A gunman attaked the Canadian Parliament and a soldier was fatfully shot at a nearby memorial. Witness accounts indicated the man who shot dead the soldier guarding the National War Memorial in central Ottawa, went on to attack the parliament building minutes later. The assault took place very near the room where Prime Minister Harper was meeting with members of his Conservative party. The gunman in the parliament building was shot dead, and Harper was safely removed.

"We will not be intimidated. Canada will never be intimidated," said Harper.  The Prime Minister of Canada has also stated "We will redouble our efforts to fight against terrorist organizations around the world. There will be no safe haven for those who try to bring savagery to our shores."

But these are what some people are saying about America's response states an editorialabout the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant militants in Iraq. “[The threat] has already touched the lives of the thousands of Iraqis, and one with the potential to affect this region directly. And still the United States, which has a greater military presence in the Middle East than any other single country, dithers over what to do.”

The suspect for the shooting in Canada's Parliament is Michael Zehaf-Bibeau (32) and a Canadian citizen. His motive for the attack is still unknown but some believe he was working for the terrorist group ISIS.
