It was twenty Â years ago today, December 6th, 1989, when “proven” misogynist and extraordinary needledick;
“… Marc LÃ©pine, walked into Ã‰cole Polytechnique in MontrÃ©al, ‘armed with a legally obtainedÂ semi-automatic rifleÂ and aÂ hunting knife, shot twenty-eight people, killing fourteen and injuring the other fourteen before killing himself.’ All the people that he managed to murder were women. And, hereâ€™s the kicker, those efforts were declared his attempts at ‘fighting feminism’…”
And as truly horrific and sadly tragic the events of that day really were, like that of last year, I’m still quite incapable of writing anything that would, even remotely, do the lessons of that day, 20 years ago, Â justice. In fact, with the Canadian Government working so diligently to abolish the “federal long gun registry,” this years anniversary of theÂ Montreal Massacre is ever more relevant. So much so, I am certain anything I would write would be nothing more than a bunch of much deserved douche bag references, directed at people who aren’t easily insulted, or, for that matter, care what people, namely me, think.
It’s an absolute exercize in futility, and I won’t be taking part in it, today…
