Christie on Toronto van attack

April 25, 2018
CFAX 1070

School of Humanitarian Studies Prof. Ken Christie joined Terry Moore on CFAX to discuss the motivation behind Monday’s Toronto van attack.

Here is an excerpt:

“It is a deliberate attack, which is what terrorists do. But terrorism has to have a political motivation. The problem is that we may find that there is no motivation. We may find that this person was just extremely disgruntled, frustrated [and] socially alienated. […] We need to start looking at these things in society which are driving people to do that and at the end of the day we may find that there is no real solid ideological or political or any other kind of motivation. That becomes harder and harder to explain.”
