Jonathan Kay: Did one man’s attack on Parliament really change Canada ‘forever’?

I don’t think I agree with all of the author’s conclusions, mainly that the availability of video from the Ottawa Shooting incident meant that “We took in the fear before we could process the facts.”

But even with that assertion, I find this a very very interesting article calling for a little more calm contemplation of the events, so that we might make decisions based on fact instead of fear.

I’m very worried that the events of the last week or so will cause Parliament to pass “anti-terror” bills more easily then they might have before.

It seems to me that recent events call for more emphasis on metal health and availability of care for those with such issues, but I guess that’s just my opinion.
