The answer to why Michael Zehaf-Bibeau opened fire on a soldier at the National War Memorial in Ottawa last October may be revealed tomorrow.
RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson will release a video Zehaf-Bibeau made on his cellphone moments before the attack.
Sources tell CBC News the video statement is not even a minute long, but in that brief period Zehaf-Bibeau explains that he attacked Parliament to avenge Canadian forces being sent to Muslim countries.
Canadian forces participated in the air strikes against Libya — the country where Zehaf-Bibeau’s father was born.
Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper told CBC news he had been briefed on the contents of the video.
“I have not seen the video, but I think Canadians are well aware — not just because of the Oct. 22 attacks but because of what they can see around the world — that unfortunately the threat of terrorism, violent jihadism, is very real,” Harper said.
