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.

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,...

‘Nothing to see here, folks’: What Canadians are increasingly being told about national security matters

Whoddunit? What happened? Why’d it happen? It’s only natural that human beings will ask these questions if a shooting happens in their neighbourhood, a vehicle rams into pedestrians, or people in their city are arrested for having explosive devices. So natural that there are entire genres of books, movies and TV shows devoted to people asking these questions and doggedly pursuing answers. (Toronto Sun)
