MAROIS SHOOTING

CP

Even Before the Shots, This Election Was Rooted in Hate

As the Parti Québécois gathered for their victory party Wednesday morning, shots were fired from an AK 47 where two people were shot; one man died on the scene. Pauline Marois was quickly ushered off the stage, and authorities swiftly apprehended the shooter. People are quick to place blame in instances like this. We are all to blame. When the political discourse in this province reduces itself to a claptrap mélange of xenophobic remarks and intransigent reactions, the outcome is never good.
