I was a sophomore in high school at the time; that was a strange October.

I think this movie was filmed in Canada despite the filming locations in the imdb.

Exactly why do you think that? What evidence do you have?

According to the IMDB, the picture car co-ordinator is called Nigel Habgood:

I looked at the other films he has credits for on the IMDB, and according to the IMDB's locations information they were all filmed partially or entirely in Canada.

Before the Beltway Sniper Attacks in October 2002, the Snipers; John Allen Muhammad and Lee Boyd Malvo had shot at least 15 victims between February 2002 and September 2002, these attacks occurred in Washington State, California, Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, Alabama, Florida, Georgia and Maryland.

In those attacks, 7 were killed, among those who were killed was Keenya Cook; a 21 year-old mother and the niece of a woman who was the friend of John Allen Muhammad's ex-wife and one of the principal witnesses who testified against Muhammad at his divorce hearing and custody case.

In that shooting, Muhammad wanted to silence the witness for testifying against him, so he sent Lee Malvo to her house in Tacoma, Washington State (Muhammad's hometown) to kill her but when Lee knocked on the door of the woman's house, her niece instead opened the door and Lee killed her.

Before the spree, Muhammad did plan to have his ex-wife; Mildred killed and at the time of the attacks, she and her children lived in the D.C. area and after he was caught, she was shocked and begun to believed that if she stayed with Muhammad, the attacks wouldn't happen.

In a documentary on the CI channel, they did a special where one of the surviving victims who was shot before the Beltway attacks and Keenya Cook's aunt had sat down with Mildred and told her that she is not to blame for what Muhammad and Malvo did and that she was lucky to get the kids and herself away from him before her and her kids became another lot of victims added to the list of victims killed in the two sets of the attacks.

It was also later revealed that during Muhammad's trial in May 2006, Malvo testified that the shootings were meant to be part of the "Real Plan"; a bigger plan that Muhammad had came up with to inflict major carnage across the United States.

The plan was spilt into three phases:

Phase 1- Kill six white people a day for 30 days, this phase had consisted of planning and mapping out a predetermined route in and out of the DC area as well as practicing at the locations.

Malvo said that Phase 1 didn't go as planned as the route selected was filled with heavy traffic and the lack of a having clear shot or having clear getaway.

Phase 2- Kill a pregnant woman by shooting in her in the stomach and later, a police officer, this was to be followed by detonating several bombs at the officer's funeral to kill the attending officers and later, the ambulance crews arriving on the scene.

Malvo said that Phase 2 was to take place in Baltimore and was close to be implemented but wasn't carried out.

Phase 3- Extort millions of dollars from the US Government.

Malvo said the Phase 3 would take place during or shortly after Phase 2 and that the money extorted from the US Government would be used to finance a larger operation.

Malvo also said that the larger operation would take place in Canada and while on the way, they would stop at various youth centres and orphanages to recruit more young boys with no parents or guidance who Muhammad could be a father figure to like he was to Malvo.

Once they recruited a large number of boys and cross the border into Canada, Muhammad would train them in weapons and stealth tactics and once the boys' training would be completed, Muhammad would send them out across the US to carry out a coordinate series of mass shooting sprees in various US cities in hope the shootings would plunge the US into chaos that have already build up after the 9/11 attacks.

I seen the "Blue Caprice" which also focused on the Beltway Sniper Attacks but it had also focused on the events leading up to the attacks as well as the earlier attacks.

Also, in one scene, you can see a "Home Outfitters" store, which is a Canadian retailer chain.

During the spree, some service stations in the areas started putting up tarps all round the awnings to protect people who are filling up their cars and some people would filled their vehicles up at the naval base of National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland as they felt safe with the guards and even some would crouch between the pumps and their vehicles when they were filling up.

Some schools were closed for the day, all the schools' outdoor activities were cancelled, some schools changed their after-school procedures for parents to pick up their kids to minimize the amount of the time that the children are in open and some schools had police officers posted to keep a watch.

All government buildings and tourist attractions had their security heighten and all US Senate Pages had received driven police escorts to and from work and weren't allowed to leave their residence at the Daniel Webster Senate Page Residence except for work.

The investigation did received a lot of assistance from the officials at the Pentagon who allowed the investigators to used their Satellites in hope to track down the Snipers.

Yeah, schools had indoor recess instead of outdoor. They thought white vans were what the shooters were driving so they pulled those over, though they found it it was actually a blue four-dar car.
