The Prime Minster is condemning today’s events on Parliament Hill as a despicable attack.  The Prime Minister is expected to address the nation later this afternoon or possibly this evening live on all television networks.  The media is still waiting for confirmation on this.  Meanwhile, the Canadian embassy in the U-S is in lockdown.  U-S President Barack Obama is expressing his thoughts and prayers for all Canadians affected by today’s attack.  Obama and Stephen Harper did have a phone call earlier today, but there are no details on the conversation.
