This is a game changer.
Wednesday’s attacks in Ottawa strongly suggest the Islamic State (ISIL) or other foreign jihadist influences have the ability to inspire, recruit or possibly even task Canadian sympathizers to launch domestic assaults, however unsophisticated.
With details still emerging Wednesday night, ISIL was the leading suspect. The terrorist group has publicly called on supporters to kill military personnel and civilians in Canada and other countries — including by running them over with cars. In just three days, two soldiers have been murdered on Canadian soil, one run down by a car in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu and another shot in cold-blood at one of the country’s most sacred sites, the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.
No previous or would-be jihadists have managed to do anything like this in Canada. And until now, the handful of modern terrorist incidents and major security breaches in Ottawa have largely occurred against foreign embassies and individual diplomats.
