“Despite the mass surveillance and increased police powers – all for our safety of course – the authorities have not only been unable to prevent terrorist attacks, they’re actions have actually ensured these attacks occur in Canada!”

Censorship: RCMP Asks Public Not to Post Photos, Videos of Ottawa Shooting
by Kit Daniels
Oct 22, 2014
The Royal Canadian Mounted Police asked the public not to post videos or photos relating to this morning’s shooting in Ottawa, Canada, as it was occurring, raising fears that officials were trying to censor news on the shooting near Canada’s Parliament.
The RCMP made the announcement on Twitter just minutes after at least one shooter killed a soldier at the National War Memorial of Canada, which is mere blocks from government buildings.
Despite claiming the censorship “ensures safety of first responders and the public,” the RCMP’s announcement raises valid concerns that government officials were trying to control the release of news surrounding the shooting to give them an opportunity to bury facts which place officials in a bad light.
The RCMP announcement is nothing short of an attack on the press because media outlets use social media as a source of news, and such censorship only benefits the government while doing little to ensure public safety.
“Twitter is the fastest way to break news now,” Guardian News & Media CEO Andrew Miller said back in 2013. “So core to what we do and core to what we do on a daily basis.”
For example, if it wasn’t for citizen-journalists tweeting the latest developments during the unrest in Ferguson, Mo., back in August, police brutality during the protests would have gone unnoticed.
“In Ferguson, Twitter users were able to see photos and video clips of Al Jazeera’ cameras and other equipment being removed after police fired a tear gas canister towards the news crew (police have since said they were just relocating the media to a safer area), and they were able to see [Washington Post journalist] Wesley Lowery being detained by police, and follow along in real time as he described having his head slammed into a soda machine, and reported how his requests to get the names and badge numbers of the police were repeatedly denied,” Mathew Ingram of Gigaom wrote. “In the absence of any other witnesses to that kind of behavior, Twitter becomes a crucial check on the power of the authorities.”

Only two days after a possible “terrorist” attack in Quebec that saw two Canadian soldiers run down by a motorist, who was later shot and killed by police.
The Montreal Gazette is reporting that: A uniformed soldier was shot at the Canadian War Memorial on Wednesday morning by a gunman dressed in dark clothing who fled toward Parliament Hill.
There have been unconfirmed reports of more shootings inside Centre Block, and Parliament Hill is in lockdown mode. Police and emergency vehicles filled the parking area in front of the Hill.
The shooting, which has been confirmed by Ottawa police, occurred just before 10 a.m. Bystanders and paramedics were giving emergency medical attention to the downed soldier, who was lying on the ground in front of the Cenotaph.
Witnesses described seeing a man running from the scene as tall with a dark coat.
