Sullivan’s memories of shooting on The Hill

Mike Sullivan posted a memoir to Facebook of last week’s shooting on Parliament Hill.

Our caucus main door, leading to the Hall of Honour, was two double doors – an outer wooden door which opened out, and an inner padded door which opened in, for soundproofing. There were three other sets of doors into the room, all padded and doubled, and I hastily helped move a table against the door closest to me, to keep it shut. By this time we were hearing a hail of gunfire. It seemed to be first outside the main door, then it moved to outside our back door. I was too close to it, so I moved away and put my back to a stonewall. I was shaking like a leaf…

 

In related news, Mike Sullivan agreed with Thomas Mulcair’s opinion that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was a criminal, not a terrorist. Sullivan said, “Here, here” [sic], when sharing the opinion from Mulcair on Facebook. Mulcair has been criticized by Conservatives and Liberals for this position, but received wide support from the public.
