The big news story of the day for us.. some shots were fired in Ottawa killing a ceremonial soldier at the National War Memorial and inside the Canadian Parliament. I watched it unfold on CBC & CTV's live stream online and hope and prayed it wouldn't get out of hand and get a whole lot worse.. which thankfully it didn't.. The world is a crappy place at times. The lone shooter was shot dead so I 'm not sure we'll ever know fully why this happened but it's leaning towards home grown terrorism or at least that's the storyline for the moment.
