1 person has been murdered at the PQ election celebration. That makes it terrorism. Its not just a crime, its a politically motivated crime.
It was a shocker. "What happened! Where did she go?"
A politician doesnt skip the moment of glory. It must have been a security problem. Marois was there ranting about separation and then she was gone.
The news kept getting worse after that.
First the crowd was told someone fired some blanks. A lie to keep order. You can't yell fire in crowded theatre. I guess you can't yell fire in burning theatre either.
Later we found out about the fire the terrorist had set and the person he shot.
Very sad. A terrible start to a divisive and confrontational minority government.
Then there is the quote picked up by the french CBC. "The english are rising" he is thought to have shouted.
I have my doubts. It doesnt smell right.
I've never heard of militant anglos before. It seems to me that vastly outnumbered people would side with the rule of law. What exactly would armed rebellion accomplish?
No rational person would do something like this. Remember this is the same city that gave us the Luca Magnotta horror. He made some grusome political statements as well.
A person could be both insane and politically active. Think of Charlie Manson. Manson went around killing white people to provoke a race war.
Could the PQ shooter be a looney separatist looking to instigate a retaliation worthy of the FLQ?
Some would hope.
