Edmonton terror attacks a reminder that we must take hateful ideology seriously

We can all be grateful that no one died in the Edmonton terror attacks on Saturday, September 30.

Details are now beginning to emerge about a past police investigation of the lone suspect in the attack, Abdulahi Hasan Sharif.

The police duly conducted the 2015 investigation after receiving a tip from the public that he espoused radical views. One officer said he expressed genocidal beliefs and Sharif’s co-workers stated that he also expressed hateful views about Shia Muslims.
