Breaking News: Shooting In Parliament


  1. Fortunately, Lorne, this seems to have been a very amateurish attack. When contrasted to the attacks we have seen in foreign capitals this was not all that serious.

    What I want to know is why, when our government wastes no opportunity to warn us that terrorists are afoot among us, there were soldiers standing Target Duty at the War Memorial.

    Way back when, soldiers were at the memorial on Remembrance Day. That's about two weeks hence. So why did we (Harper) set up every domestic terrorists' dream target? Was this young soldier fodder for Harper's grotesque militarist nationalism?

    The whole business sickens me.

    1. Without in any way minimizing the tragedy of events today, Mound, I have to admit that one of my immediate thoughts upon hearing the news was how Harper will work this attack to his advantage. I can just imagine the ads that are to come about "Harper's strong, decisive leadership" contrasted with some silliness about Trudeau.
