Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper voiced determination that Wednesday's shooting in the capital not deter the government and Parliament.

"While the prime minister stated that facts are still being gathered, he condemned this despicable attack," a statement from the prime minister's office said after a soldier at the National War Memorial was shot and killed and shots rang out inside the Parliament building.

"The prime minister reiterated the importance of the continued functioning of the government and our Parliament."
