Stephen Harper the Canadian Prime Minister yesterday vowed to redouble the country’s fight against “terrorist organizations”, after a reported convert to Islam attacked the nation’s parliament and sending shock waves through the country.

The gunman shot dead a soldier at the National War Memorial in central Ottawa on Wednesday morning, while a man armed with a shotgun burst into the Center Block of Parliament, pursued by police. He died after dozens of shots rang out a few yards away from where the PM was talking to his legislators.

Ottawa police say it was too early to determine whether one person was responsible for both attacks. The killing of the Canadian soldier was the second this week with a possible link to Islamist militants.

In a televised address late yesterday Harper insisted Canada would never be intimidated.

This will lead us to strengthen our resolve and redouble our efforts and those of our national security agencies to take all necessary steps to identify and counter threats.
