NHL postpones Wed. Oct 22 Toronto Maple Leafs at Ottawa Senators game after Islamic militant killing in Ottawa followed by wild shooting in Canada Parliament

UPDATE: 10/24/14, Montreal: The killer's Libyan father still lives with his Canadian mother though they're legally divorced: "By the summer of 2013, Zehaf-Bibeau had moved again. Back then, Montreal resident Bari Malki peaked out of his suburban home across the road from the one that he says Zehaf-Bibeau’s parents, although legally divorced in 1999, still share. Parked on the street was a dark-coloured Hummer. Scurrying around the luxury vehicle was a man with long dark hair, a white skullcap and wearing what he described as a typical Arab wardrobe. Malki learned the man’s identity only when he turned on the news Wednesday and saw the photograph of a gun-toting Zehaf-Bibeau. He recalled the booming voice of the shooter’s father, Bulgasem Zehaf, urging his son to stop cleaning the vehicle because it wasn’t even dirty."..."What propelled Michael Zehaf-Bibeau on path to radicalization," Toronto Star, A.

"So shocking were the day’s events to the Canadian psyche that organizers canceled a National Hockey League game between the Ottawa Senators and the Toronto Maple Leafs....The shootings come two days after a Canadian soldier died and a second was injured after being run down by a car driven by a suspected Islamic militant (30 mi. from Montreal) whom authorities said had been “radicalized.”"
