Canada's first honour killing?

Nowhere in the article does this say these are muslims...but it appears this is an honour killing.
The brutal shooting death of a 20-year-old Ottawa woman and the wounding of her fiance early Tuesday morning provided one more shock yesterday: the suspect is the bride-to-be's brother.

Police said yesterday they are on the hunt for 20-year-old Hasibullah Sadiqi of Ottawa in connection with the death of his sister, identified by her fiance's family as Khatera Sadiqi, and the wounding of the fiance, Feroz Mangal, 23.

Just before 1 a.m. Tuesday, at least five shots were fired as Mr. Mangal and Ms. Sadiqi sat in a black Honda in a parking lot at the Elmvale Acres shopping plaza at the corner of St. Laurent Boulevard and Smyth Road.

Ms. Sadiqi, who was at the wheel, died of a single gunshot to the head. Mr. Mangal, beside her in the passenger seat, was hit in his neck, torso, arm and thigh. He remained in the intensive care unit of the Ottawa Hospital's Civic campus yesterday, in critical but stable condition.

Honour killing was my first thought as well when I read the article in the Ottawa Citizen this morning. It has all the hallmarks of avowed honour killings occurring elsewhere in the world. However, if it is an honour killing, don't expect the Police, Government or MSM to call it such - not politically correct. Stuff like that doesn't happen in Canada. We're far too enlightened.

Not only are we far too enlightened, any problem was stirred up by George Bush, and given local amplification by various poodles!

CJOH had a guy do a soundbite about honour killing and the Ottawa Sun says the Afghan community "was talking" about the "upcoming" marriage, implying they were living together.
Nobody will come right out and say it.

It wouldn't be the first. There was a case in BC last year, I believe, when a father murdered his daughter.

Also a case in Toronto last year, that Steve Janke has followed.

The man's family is Afghani, so it's a given they were Muslim. Virtually a given that her family is too.

A few years ago, there was a case somewhere in Canada of a father (Muslim) who was charged with the attempted murder of his daughter because she refused to marry the man he told her to marry. Does anyone know what ever happened in that case? Did the father go to jail?

I've met Khatera a few times through friends, she is Muslim and a sweet girl, she didn't deserve this...
