Top Mountie backtracks on releasing Zehaf-Bibeau’s video manifesto

RCMP may not release a video manifesto recorded by a gunman who later stormed Parliament, despite the commissioner earlier saying he hoped to do so.

In the video, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau is said to have laid out political motives for his Oct. 22 attack ‎and made a religious reference.

RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson has said he hoped the video would be released. On Monday, however, Mr. Paulson backtracked on that, saying he now may instead release a written transcript.
