OTTAWA Cheap College Jerseys China , Oct. 23 (Xinhua) -- Canada will not be intimidated by terrorism and will enhance its fight against terrorist organizations, Prime Minister Stephen Harper said on Wednesday.

Harper's address came as authorities lifted a lockdown in downtown Ottawa, except in the parliament building, after gunshots were fired inside it earlier in the day.

"This week's incidents are a grim reminder that Canada is not immune to the types of terror attacks we have seen elsewhere around the world Cheap Jerseys Shop ," said the prime minister.


"Attacks on our security personnel and on our institutions of government are by their very nature attacks on our country, on our values, on our society and on us Canadians," he added.

"We don't yet have all the information about whether this was part of a broader network or plan, or whether this was an individual or series of individuals who decided to take these actions," he added.


In his phone talks with Harper earlier Cheap Jerseys Discount , Obama condemned what he called the "outrageous" attacks that occurred in Canada in the past three days and offered "any assistance" needed by Canada in responding to the attacks.
