Posted on 10/01/2017 5:59:57 AM PDT by traumer
Canadian police have confirmed they are investigating possible acts of terrorism after multiple incidents in Edmonton, Alberta, on Saturday night. They said a police officer controlling traffic at a Canadian Football League game was struck by a car at high speed and then attacked with a knife. A man driving a van went on to hit at least four pedestrians and was arrested two hours later after a police chase. Police said an Islamic State (IS) group flag was found in one of the vehicles. Edmonton Police Service Chief Rod Knecht said the officer and his vehicle were rammed by a white Chevrolet Malibu at about 20:15 local time (04:15 GMT) outside Alberta's Commonwealth Stadium.
The driver then got out of his vehicle and stabbed the uniformed officer several times, before fleeing on foot. The officer was taken to hospital but his injuries are not thought to be life-threatening. Chief Knecht said information about the vehicle's registered owner was broadcast to patrol officers.

“... it was determined these incidents are being investigated as acts of terrorism.”
Isn’t it a quick jump to conclusion?
...Police said the arrested individual had been known to authorities.
Better the devil you know? And yet they knowingly allow them to remain in Canada? Wonder if they wise up and know an act of terrorism will actually occur at some point? They aren’t there for the scenery
Suitable grossed out for the remainder of the day. I HATE roaches
great...heading to Banff tomorrow....
