An attack on a police officer outside a football game and a high-speed chase that injured four people in the western city of Edmonton are being investigated as acts of terrorism, Canadian police said on Sunday.
A man who allegedly attacked an Edmonton police officer with a knife before raming a rental truck a few hours later into pedestrians downtown is suspected of "terrorist acts", police chief Rod Knecht, Sunday morning.
Canadian police said they were investigating violent attacks in Edmonton on Saturday night as "acts of terrorism" after a man hit a police officer with a auto and stabbed him and then later struck four pedestrians while driving a second vehicle. "It's a testament to his experience and training that he survived".
Edmonton's refugee and Somali communities are bracing for a backlash in the wake of the attack, and met on Monday to discuss how to move forward, said Ahmed Abdulkadir, executive director of the Ogaden Somali Community of Alberta.
Knecht said when the U-Haul pulled over for the checkpoint, the driver was confronted after he produced identification linking him to the registered owner of the Malibu. "We can succumb to that or we can rise above it".
"Well said, Minister. Canadians' resolve has been tested this weekend, but I know, as always, we will come through united". But he said an ongoing investigation could change that theory.
"It is believed at this time that these two incidents are related, " Knecht said.

"It just came around the corner, ripping".
