Today was the provincial elections of the province of Québec in Canada. Pauline Marois, chief of the Parti Québecois, was elected in a minority government. As she was giving her speech about Québec independance, she was shot at by a man with what seemed like an AK-47. She was not hit, but two other men were. One is confirmed dead, while the other is in critical condition at the hospital. The criminal is a 50-year old man, an anglophone. As he was being taken away by the police, he said something to the effect of "The English are rising".
I am saddened by this. My heart goes to the victims and their families.
