Canada parliament shooter made video, driven by ideology – police

TORONTO (Reuters) – The man who killed a Canadian soldier and attacked the country’s parliament building last week made a video of himself before hand, evidence he was driven by ideological and political motives, police said on Sunday.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said in a statement they were conducting a detailed analysis of the video made by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau and could not release it at this time.

In wake of Canada attacks, Toronto police drill for disaster

TORONTO (Reuters) – About 100 police, firefighters and other emergency workers held a disaster-response drill in downtown Toronto’s deserted financial district on Sunday following a week that saw two soldiers killed on Canadian soil.

Security in normally relaxed Canada has been tighter in the days since a gunman shot dead a soldier in Ottawa before charging into the parliament building and another man ran over two soldiers with a car, killing one, outside Montreal.

‘Highway of Heroes’ bears slain Canadian soldier home

HAMILTON Ontario (Reuters) – The body of a Canadian soldier shot dead while guarding the country’s war memorial in Ottawa returned to his hometown on Friday, after thousands of his countrymen paid tribute along the nation’s “Highway of Heroes.”

Crowds of people lined much of the roughly 500-km (310-mile) route along Lake Ontario while a black hearse accompanied by dozens of police vehicles bore the slain soldier, Corporal Nathan Cirillo, 24, back to Hamilton, Ontario.
