Rundown for October 24, 2014
Terrorism North Of The Border! The entire nation of Canada was shaken this week, when a lone gunman named Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, believed to have been radicalized and sympathetic to groups like ISIS, shot and killed a soldier in the street and then stormed the Parliament. The attack was supposedly provoked by a delay in his application for a passport, which he was planning on using to travel to Syria. Toronto Sun columnist Tarek Fatah checks in with NightSide Nation to talk about the attack and the fallout as Canada deals with its own homegrown terrorist. Call in and join the conversation!

Should Christmas Vacation remain Christmas Vacation? Or is it better to be more inclusive, no matter how the town feels about the issue? Call in and sound off!
