Terrorist ideology blamed in Canada car attack

SAINT-JEAN-SUR-RICHELIEU, Quebec (AP) — A man who was shot and killed by police after he struck two members of the Canadian military with his car was “clearly linked to terrorist ideology,” officials said Tuesday.

One of two soldiers hit by a car in a city near Montreal died from his injuries.

Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney called the attack a “terrible act of violence against our country, against our military and against our values” and “clearly linked to terrorist ideology.”

I looked for a toned-down headline compared to the USA story:

Canada: Convert to radical Islam ran down soldiers

usatoday.com/story/news/world/2014/10/21/driver-hits-canadian-soldiers/17649449/

Nonetheless, this has to be looked at as another “Lone Wolf” attack, one single person carrying out such an act.
