Aasim Rashid, spokesman for the British Columbia Muslim Association, said Friday that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau visited the Masjid al-Salaam Mosque for three to four months toward the end of 2011, and possibly early 2012, before he was told not to come back.Rashid said before Zehaf-Bibeau got in trouble for using the mosque for accommodations, he had complained to leaders in the previous administration about the mosque's openness and willingness to let non-Muslims visit.Rashid said Zehaf-Bibeau was told he should go pray at a different mosque if he disagreed. But he stayed until he was ultimately asked to leave when officials learned he was still sleeping in the mosque while battling legal troubles.Unlike the attacker in the Quebec case, Zehaf-Bibeau was not being watched by authorities.
