Lorne Gunter: Politicians wrongly point fingers at us in terror attack

Both New Democrat Premier Rachel Notley and Mayor Don Iveson left the impression in their news conferences Sunday morning in the wake of Saturday’s terror attacks outside the Eskimos game at Commonwealth Stadium and in downtown Edmonton’s bar strip, that they were as worried about you and me as they were about a second radical Muslim attacker.

Multiple police sources confirm that the suspect in Saturday’s terror attacks, 30-year-old Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, a Somali refugee here in Canada, “acted alone” and was “self-radicalized.”
