Terrorist Ends Canada’s Innocence

An unprecedented attack shook Canada on Wednesday as at least one gunman attacked parliament and the country’s war memorial in the capital, Ottawa.

A fundamentally quiet and orderly town, Ottawa was rocked by the shooting of a uniformed Canadian soldier as he stood guard over the National War Memorial, located right across the street from Parliament Hill and the prime minister’s offices at Langevin Block.

It was the second attack inside Canada this week.
