On January 29, 2017, an armed gunman burst into a mosque in Quebec City, killing 6 and wounding 19 more.
It was a horrendous attack that must be condemned. And immediately it was.
But the early reports were confusing. One eyewitness at the mosque said there were more than one gunman. Another said there was a shout of “Allah Akbar”.
And that night, police took into custody two men — Alexandre Bissonnette, and Mohamed Khadir, a Muslim man.
The next morning, police released Khadir, saying he was no longer a suspect, but rather a witness. And they laid charges against Bissonnette, for murder.
What’s going on here? What are the facts? And can we trust the mainstream media to tell us the truth about such a controversial and sensitive subject?
We don’t know all the facts yet. But unlike the CBC, we intend to uncover the truth, not bury it.
