Default Quebec City Mosque Attack

Stupidly I've no link. I just want to talk with people about this as I'm deeply upset by it.

I know that there are shitty, stupid, foul, ignorant, racists in Canada but I never considered something like this happening.

On the news there was an unconfirmed report that one of the accused is of Moroccan descent. Maybe the law can wring some sort of explanation out of them.

I took a look at the mosque on the corner, all quiet and normal. My neighbourhood has all kinds of churches, ashrams, meeting places of many faiths and it makes me sick at heart to think that my new neighbours will have to consider getting security cameras and doors to feel safe.

I find it deeply upsetting as well. People in their house of worship should feel safe. I find it very troubling that this kind of hate has happened anywhere, but in a place where people were praying is beyond horrible.

Same here. It's very disturbing.

The mosque had already been targeted - a pig'd head was left on the doorstep & anti-Islam propaganda has been distributed in the area.

As my son pointed out last night, racial tension is surprisingly (to us) high here, some of it very openly so

That mosque is very close to where my son lives.

I'd have expected something like this happen somewhere in Canada but not there.

Have the shooters been identified?

Name & shame.

If the are Canadian citizens, then lock them up without trial & throw away the key.

If they are PR's, then deportation within 24 hours

on the CBC news website - c&p'd

"'A witness who asked to remain anonymous told Radio-Canada that two masked individuals entered the mosque.

"It seemed to me that they had a Québécois accent. They started to fire, and as they shot, they yelled, 'Allahu akbar!' The bullets hit people that were praying. People who were praying lost their lives. A bullet passed right over my head.

"There were even kids. There was even a three-year-old who was with his father," the witness said."

They have murder charges to face in Canada first.

Not officially but there are 2 suspects in custody who have not been formally charged with anything. The Police have not identified anything about them apart from being male.

If charged then they need to be afforded a trial and legal representation and due process under the law needs to be followed.

How would deportation within 24 hours work if a PR?

lets sit back take a breath and wait for more details before getting caught up in all of the speculation as evidenced by the comments in this article on the shooting

OK, if that is Canadian judicial process if the shooters are PR's only

Charge them with murder then put them on a plane within 24 hours.

No trial, just a court apperance, 'you are charged with murdering & causing bodily harm with the intent to murder xxx people'

If they are not Canadian citizens how long under the current Canadian legal system do you reckon it will be before they are deported?

If this 'shooting & killing people' happened in one of the muslim countries, I suspect the arrested shooters would have their heads chopped off real quick.

An 'Eye for an eye', eh, why not

Unconfirmed RUMOURS that one may be of "Moroccan origin", and/or that they may be students at UdL.

Some of the news coverage I'm watching is quite mixed up and contradictory, three reports from the same news channel, all at the same time, with different rumours in each .

Thats why we need to sit back and wait for more details from Official Sources who sometimes also get it wrong as well.

From several years of perusing Canlii from my armchair, PRs charged and convicted of crimes for which they can be deported generally first serve their sentences, then face deportation hearings.

Absolutely. The official police spokeswoman has already corrected a couple of statements.
