Media absent in Mississauga shooting

On May 29 a shooter walked into the Chicken Land restaurant in Mississauga.  When the shooting stopped five people were shot, one fatally. The Peel Regional Police Homicide squad is handling the file. They have named three suspects: Anand Nath, Naqash Abbasi, and Suliman Raza (pictured). Two of the suspects were subsequently arrested and charged, but Nath tried to flee, boarding a flight to Montreal. He ultimately turned himself in and was flown back to Mississauga. Peel Police have since charged him with first degree murder as well.  Now you’d almost think that this sort of shooting attack would attract a lot of media attention. But it didn’t. Unless you’re a voracious news consumer, it’s likely you never heard of any of this.  I scoured the internet to find information about this incident but had precious little success.Tom Quiggan has been following this story on his excellent podcast The Quiggan Report. But where’s the mainstream media? The shooting victims were, all but one, members of the same family which operated the restaurant. Naim Aki, 25, was killed in the shooting rampage. His dad, 56, Jihad, mom Rania, 44 and brother Daniel, were also shot but not fatally. A shot was fired at the 13-year-old sister Sandra, but fortunately missed.  A 58-year-old male employee of the restaurant was also shot.  The victims were members of the Lebanese Druze community while the suspects are Sunni Muslims.  It looks like the shooting was targeting the family and appears to have been a bid to eradicate them. Why? Well,...

Atlanta shootings a tragedy, but not a hate crime

It's been amusing watching the political left set their hair on fire over the Atlanta shootings.It must have been a hate crime they claim. After all, they were all Asians. Well except for the two found-ins in the wrong place at the wrong time, folks whom the left simply ignore. Its embarrassing really. First off, the Asians involved were the furthest thing from the outstanding citizens killed by a depraved killer. Well, he was nothing of the sort. He is a disturbed young man obsessed with pornography and sex in general with whomever he can get it. The Asians killed were  . . how to be gentle here. . .ladies who give rub and tugs. These shops are all over the place and yes Canada too. They're a dime a dozen across Canadian cities. Remember the sainted Jack Layton? His 2010 election for the Prime Minister's job came unglued when he got found naked in one of these shops in the 700 block of Dundas Street in Toronto. He tried to claim when the police came in on a child sex trafficking investigation he was only there for a shiatsu. While standing, talking to a naked man the officer could barely contain his mirth. Tip: if you are going to claim you are only in a massage parlour for a shiatsu massage, don't get naked without a towel. I don't blame the women in these places.They are just trying to earn a living. Without English or marketable skills,  this is what they are left with. But, the blame...
