The Guardian on Montreal Violence

September 15th, 2006     by Allison Martell     Comments

I will be blogging from Edinburgh, Scotland for the next eight months or so, while I attend school here. Generally Canada is ignored by the UK media (and that is fine with me) but after this week’s shootings in Montreal we are on front pages internationally.

I’m just posting to point out an article available online from The Guardian. It is mostly about the other Montreal school shooting, at L’Ecole Polytechnique, where Marc Lepine murdered fourteen women. The article is obviously intended for non-Canadians, but I think it’s worth checking out if (like me) you are too young to remember Lepine. It’s pretty tough reading, though.
