Barack Obama calls Stephen Harper to express support

WASHINGTON — Following Wednesday’s shooting in Ottawa

that claimed the life of a Canadian soldier, U.S. President Barack Obama phoned Prime Minister Stephen Harper and pledged that the U.S. is “going to do everything we can to make sure we are standing side by side with Canada during this difficult time.”

Obama told reporters at the White House that he gave his condolences to the families of the soldier killed earlier this week and of the soldier killed Wednesday while guarding the National War Memorial as well as to the Canadian people.

“We don’t yet have all the information about what motivated the shooting,” he said. “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.
