It's election night here. People have been tearing each other apart for months. I wich when they realise that what they wanted has not happen, those pseudo-anarcho/commies will just shut the *** up now.
Shooting mars Quebec separatists' election victory
One person was killed and another seriously injured when a gunman opened fire during the victory speech of Quebec’s newly elected separatist leader Pauline Marois late Tuesday, eclipsing the Parti Quebecois' narrow win over the ruling Liberals.
REUTERS - A masked gunman shot dead one person inside a Montreal theater where the leader of Quebec’s separatist Parti Quebecois was celebrating a narrow election win in the Canadian province, police said on Wednesday.
The shooting eclipsed news that the Parti Quebecois had pipped the ruling Liberals in Tuesday’s election and would have to be content with a minority government, effectively ruling out another referendum on breaking away from Canada.
Pauline Marois, newly elected as the first female premier of Quebec, had just told a rally of supporters the province would one day be independent when her bodyguards rushed her from the stage. She later returned to finish her speech.
The incident was shocking for Canada, where murder levels are around a third of those in the United States and political violence is extremely rare.
Montreal police said a man around 50 years old had entered the back of the Metropolis theater just before midnight (0400 GMT Wednesday) with a rifle and a handgun and shot two people. Police said a man in his 40s died on the spot, another was taken to hospital in a critical condition.
RDI television showed pictures of police subduing a large man with a rifle who was dressed in a black cape and a black face mask.
He appeared to shout in French the phrase "The English are waking up." Marois had promised to strengthen laws designed to ensure the dominance of the French language, which has worried some in the minority English-speaking community.
"We are appalled by this violence," said Carl Vallee, a spokesman for federal Prime Minister Stephen Harper...............
You know me, always posting with an absent mind....
No big deal..
I wish that the people that want to get rid of Obama would put it as nicely as you. One line and move on...
... though on second thought - the words 'get rid of' used on this thread might be misconstrued...
I happen to disagree one hundred percent with Philip - Obama needs to STAY. Hope he gets the chance to steer the ship further into smoother waters--- - lol as Clinton said (not a fan of clinton but heck great speaker eh?!) "it takes longer than 3 1/2 years to fix an 8 year mess..."
I read the repoert on the winner of the Quebec election (a woman) and was VERY happy that they had a nice, happy and informative story, headline was nice, photo was happy - and left the detail about the attempted shotting to the last few lines... so as not to let the "bad guys" win... and control the message...
