Newsline: US ambassador to Canada was out of town during Ottawa attack | Diplomatic Briefing

During the height of the attack on Canada’s capital Wednesday, U.S. Ambassador Bruce Heyman retweeted his Embassy’s statement that “we are currently on lockdown.” As it turns out, Ambassador Heyman, a former Chicago investment banker, was not locked down in the Embassy or even in Ottawa, the I-Team has learned. It is unclear where he was. Shortly after the shooting incidents at the Canadian War Memorial and the Parliament building, the I-Team contacted the Embassy and to do a phone or Skype interview with Ambassador Heyman. We were told by Embassy press assistant Jennifer Young that “the Ambassador is not available for interviews at this time.”
