    Everywhere I looked along the parade route, I saw snipers, police officers, helicopters, and soldiers. They were very still and very quiet.

    I’m surprised to see Canada taking the long short road to perdition on this issue. I always thought you guys were impervious to this sort of nonsense.

    Oh well. All things must pass, eh?Report

    Technically, CSIS cannot detain anyone. It is a civilian (i.e. non-law enforcement) agency. It would likely be the RCMP who detains them. And didn’t the shooters father die in 2011 fighting in Algeria?Report

      No, he fought in Libya in 2011 and is still alive. He’s keeping quiet, but has issued a statement about the shooting. Thank you for the correction about detainment.Report
