12/1    No, being Canadian didn't help in Mumbai.
        \_ The gunmen were going to places that British + Americans
           frequented at. They had no idea if this guy was a Canadian
           or not.

        101 dead in India. Word of advice: don't tell gunmen that
        you're an American/Britain. Say that you're a Canadian, and
        that you never supported Bush's war. Seriously, you didn't
        actually support his war right? It's aboot time that I practice

           invested it in his 7 American houses.

Go to Google News Montreal actor describes 'Die Hard' moment in Mumbai shootings 1 day ago TORONTO -- A Montreal actor who was wounded in last week's Mumbai terror attacks described finding himself in the midst of a real-life "Bruce Willis 'Die Hard' moment" as he came under a hail of gunfire. Rudder dived to the floor of the Oberoi hotel restaurant just as a third bullet hit him in the buttocks and a fourth one grazed his head. Rudder's acting instincts and experience on movie sets proved a tactical asset: he pretended he was dead until the gunmen moved off. After the gunman left the area, he crawled over to the service exit of the kitchen and fled the building before he was bundled off to hospital in the back of a taxi. A surgery is scheduled for Tuesday to remove a bullet still in his stomach. Two of the friends he was dining with were killed in the attacks, which claimed the lives of 174 people, including two Canadians. The second Canadian killed has been identified as Elizabeth Russell, Moss's wife. Russell's daughter, Anne Russell, confirmed Sunday that her mother, a retired nurse and social worker, died alongside her partner of 20 years. When Rudder and his friends first heard gunshots, the actor got up to see what was going on, but hotel staff told him it was just gangsters and he should go back to his table. Doctors have told him that he won't be in any condition to travel for a "little while." The second Canadian wounded, Toronto yoga instructor Helen Connolly, was grazed by a bullet. Seventeen other Canadians were inside the Taj and Oberoi hotels when the attacks happened. Rudder and three others had travelled to India on a spiritual pilgrimage with their Virginia-based meditation group. Charles Cannon, the group's spiritual leader, barricaded himself into his hotel room with his two personal assistants from Synchronicity Foundation, stacking furniture against the door. The three listened to grenade explosions and heavy gunfire outside, "not knowing if in the next moment the door would be blown away and your life would be ended," Cannon said Sunday. On Saturday afternoon - nearly 60 hours after the attacks began - there was a knock at the door: 10 Indian commandos were waiting in the hall. They escorted Cannon and his colleagues down the stairs, through the flooded and charred hotel. Cannon said he plans to return to India, though it's too early to say whether he will organize another group retreat.
