Are the MSM and Government Officials Already ‘Fake Newsing’ Yesterday’s Van Terror Attack?
Less than 24 hours after Toronto van terror suspect Alek Minassian allegedly deliberately mowed down pedestrians Monday afternoon, leaving 10 dead and 15 injured, he’s already being mainstream media-described as a “socially awkward tech expert”.

Is the mainstream media trying to portray Minassian, 25, as a mentally disturbed individual rather than a terrorist?

“Canadian Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said he does not believe the attack was linked to terrorism. Federal mounted police are not involved in the investigation, also making a terror connection unlikely.” (Daily Mail, April 23, 2018)


Canadians and Americans call “Federal mounted police” the RCMP (Royal Canadian Mounted Police).

In this country the RCMP investigate crime.  CSIS () investigate terrorism, though the two agencies often work together.

Yesterday’s horrific attack which left carnage a mile long leaves more questions than answers.

Minassian, who went on to attend classes as a Seneca College student, purportedly  attended a high school program for students with special needs where he would often walk the halls with his head down and hands tightly clasped, according to former classmates. 

“A September 2013 blog post said he had started to work at Seneca College’s Centre for Development of Open Technology. He posted about his progress developing software there until March 2014.” (Daily Mail, April 24, 2018)

Are there any records of any groups with whom he may have communicated between 2013 and 2014? 

The Daily Mail cite students who claim Minassian was not only harmless, but “absolutely harmless”.

“Shereen Chami, one of his ex-classmates, told Reuters that he was not violent.(Daily Mail)

“She said Minassian was part of a program at Thornlea Secondary School, in Toronto’s northern suburbs, for high school students with special needs, attending a mix of mainstream and separate classes.

“Chami remembers him walking the halls with his hands together and his head down, and making meowing noises.

‘He wasn’t a social person, but from what I remember he was absolutely harmless,’ she said.

“Two other classmates said they attended classes for students with special needs alongside Minassian. 

“One classmate said that when he knew Minassian he couldn’t drive and didn’t know how to work a steering wheel.”

If Minassian made it from the van rental company to the scene of carnage, wouldn’t he have known enough to steer his way there?

If Minassian rented the white van from Ryder, wouldn’t he have had to show his driver’s licence?

And the MSM’s current biggest tell-tale claim of them all?

“The name Minassian, or its alternative spelling Minasyan, is an Armenian name and more than 90 per cent of Armenians are Christians.” (Daily Mail)


Are the MSM and Liberal Canadian Government already planting the seeds that a Christian and not a Muslim is responsible for yesterday’s van terror attack?

How is it possible that police and government officials are ruling out terrorism when Toronto Police are still investigating the attack?

Aren’t truck and van attacks now a common method of terrorism? (Nice, Berlin, London, New York and other cities)

Are the MSM and authorities now ‘Fake Newsing’ potential terrorist attacks?

Was the timing of the Toronto attack suspect in any way?

Surely these are all questions the public has a right to have answered.

Public masses expect one thing from the media and their governments: the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.
