Terrorist Attacks in Canada

Crazy week in Canada, generally quiet country located north of the United States.

Monday, two soldiers were attacked by an Islamist - one has unfortunately died.

Right now, there are reports of three shootings in Ottawa, capital of Canada. One on Parliament Hill, one at the War Memorial and a third near a shopping mall.

The War Memorial is like the US's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier - the two soldiers there were standing guard and one of them was shot and taken to the hospital. The media doesn't have his condition yet.

Since this was a coordinated attack and where the shootings took place, I am going to call this a terrorist attack.
