Police have released a video made by the gunman who stormed Canada’s parliament and shot dead a soldier last week and there’s growing pressure on parliament to do more to prevent such attacks.

“We will be vigilant, but we will not run scared. We will be prudent, but we will not panic. In recent weeks I’ve been saying that our laws and police powers need to be strengthened in the area of surveillance, detention, and arrest,” said Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper. “They need to be much strengthened, and I assure you Mr. Speaker, that work that is already underway will be expedited.”
