    MONTREAL: Five people were killed after gunmen opened fire in a Quebec City mosque during evening prayers, the mosque's president told reporters on Sunday (Jan 29).

    Earlier, a witness told Reuters that up to three gunmen fired on about 40 people inside the Quebec City Islamic Cultural Center. Police put up a security perimeter around the mosque and declined to comment to reporters about the incident.

    Impossible. Canada is a peaceful, gun-free paradise.

    It's been a few days since the last one. The zealots get anxious if they can't talk about it for a few hours.

    There are plenty of hate-filled Canadians around this forum.

    Well so much for the "too many guns cause crime" theory.

    Horrifying.

    Unfortunately, it seems likely that this will devolve to a guns vs. religion thread. Reality is messy and complicated.

    I can't believe people are placing blame already, though I should not be surprised at the small minds on this forum.

    Waiting until the police release more information about the shooters would be too much to ask.

    Looks like the typical excuse of an "Eye for an eye". Don't people realize this isn't going to help. You aren't making anything better. Like killing a Neo Nazi or BLM member will undo the past violence. It doesn't work that way. You are killing innocent people who likely have nothing to do with the terrorist actions of others.

    Like killing police officers because one abused his power. You are only adding to the war, not proving your point to others.

    What people? Who are these people who are placing blame? Small minds? Pot meet kettle.

    Liberals on FB and Twitter are blaming Trump. Of course.

    Take it for what it is, but first witness reports - according many twitters account - say that shooters shouted Allah Hakbar

    Why anybody pays attention to FB is beyond me.

    Likewise anybody who pays attention to this cesspool called PRSI.

    (and yes, I am one of the things floating in it.)
