    Ban matches while we are at it. Maybe they should make killing people illegal, oh wait that didn't work.

    It was fact checked by CBC. So you know it's true.

    I thought they all died of COVID. I guess it depends who's asking.

    Federal gun control action in wake of N.S. shooting beneficial: Polytechnique survivor

    [TRIGGER WARNING: Well, I guess it's too late for the trigger warning. By now you've already read the words "Polytechnique survivor" in the title. If you're like me, your blood is already boiling. Sorry.]

    Heidi Rathjen was a student at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique in December 1989 when a gunman murdered 14 women and injured 14 others at the school.

    She said the response to mass shootings should be “political and immediate.”

    “The Conservatives and the gun lobby have been falling over themselves claiming that the (orders-in-council) were some kind of devious self-serving political move that exploited a tragedy, while for the majority of Canadians banning assault weapons is the right thing to do to prevent mass shootings,” she said in an email to The Canadian Press.

    “If it took a tragedy to prompt the government into long-awaited action on gun control, that may be a sad commentary on politics, but it is surely beneficial for public safety.”

    Rathjen, who leads an advocacy group called PolySeSouvient, said it “would have loved” for the government to respond immediately to what happened at Polytechnique.

    “Unfortunately, it took six years of advocacy before a reasonable gun control law was passed, and victims’ families are still fighting for a complete ban on assault weapons — three decades later.”

    Blair said his office worked with the RCMP on the list of banned weapons for months before the announcement, but those conversations had “no nexus” with discussions about the shooting spree.

    “The RCMP of course were involved in those discussions from the outset because they are responsible for administering the Canadian Firearms Program,” he said.
    Blah, blah, f-ing blah. We've all heard your bullshit before.

    “We”re still waiting for change” 27 years after Polytechnique massacre

    Shut it.

    [...] our reaction to Polytechnique, which has featured bitter attacks on men, Conservatives, and every Canadian who doesn’t happen to think that a national bureaucratic boondoggle is the best way to honour the legacy of 28 people gunned down by a mentally unstable lunatic.

    Evil will always be with us. What changes are the psychological reflexes that help us deal with it. In that sense, we can learn a lot from the men and women who still ride around in horses and buggies.

    Now brace yourselves for this one...

    Former police officer Michael Arntfield says if the alleged interference happened, it’s unclear how it would have impacted operations or the investigation.

    But more importantly, he says, the “juicy political scandal” is distracting from what is supposed to be an inquiry into why and how a man disguised as a police officer and armed with illegal weapons was able to evade police and continue killing for more than 13 hours.

    “The larger conversation about systemic problems in the RCMP operationally, administratively, has been paved over,” said Arntfield, a professor of criminology at Western University.

    Because corruption within our government doesn't matter. Right? Just sweep it under the rug so we can get back to our regularly schedule programming. Right?
