A review conducted by the Ontario Provincial Police into security on Parliament Hill during last October's terror attack will remain secret, for now.
The Toronto Star reports that the OPP have delivered two reports to Royal Canadian Mounted Police Commissioner Bob Paulson and House of Commons Speaker Andrew Scheer, one on events inside the Parliament buildings and one outside.
The OPP say that it is not up to them but those they delivered the reports to, to decide if they will be made public.
While details have not been released The Star describes what it claims confidential sources have told them about the final moments of terrorist, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau.
From the time he entered Parliament and shot one parliamentary guard inside the main doors, to when he lay dead, just under two harrowing minutes had elapsed. Although wounded, Zehaf-Bibeau fired off another shot that missed guards and police advancing on him down the Hall of Honour. Security forces had shot him and he had trouble raising his gun.
Zehaf-Bibeau died moments later in a hail of bullets fired by then Sgt-at-Arms Kevin Vickers and an unidentified officer.
Several changes to Parliament Hill security have been made since the attack including giving the RCMP oversight over security inside and outside of the buildings.
Previously security in the Parliament buildings was a shared jurisdiction while the Mounties looked after external security.
