Canadians Need the Truth About Toronto's Danforth Avenue Terrorist Attack


It's been more than three weeks since the murderous shooting attack on Toronto's Danforth Avenue, which is a famous outdoor dining location that is also home to the city's Greek community. Canadians were understandably horrified when they saw video images of 29-year-old Faisal Hussain casually walking down the street and opening fire. Hussain killed 18-year-old Reese Fallon and 10-year-old girl Juliana Kozis and wounded 13 other people, including a young woman who may be paralyzed for life.

Murderous attacks such as what Faisal Hussain carried out on Danforth Avenue clearly affect public confidence in the safety and security of the societies in which we live. Indeed, eroding and undermining that public confidence is a goal of the terrorist groups that engage in or seek to inspire such attacks.
