The Montreal Massacre and the Murdered Legacy
I'm glad the Harper Cons weren't invited to this sad ceremony on Parliament Hill.
For how could those grotesque Cons mourn those murdered women? When they are greasing up their guns to murder their legacy.
“Even as we mourn the 14 women killed at l’École Polytechnique, this government is taking the last remaining safeguard off the very weapon that murdered these women,” Ms. Turmel said. “The Conservatives are recklessly dismantling the only positive thing to come out of the tragic events of Dec. 6.”
Spitting on their graves, and shattering the lives of those who loved them, and along with so many others worked so hard for 22 years to make Canada a safer place.
Free from this kind of violence...
People like Suzanne Laplante-Edward, mother of Anne-Marie, who is seeing the living memorial to her daughter destroyed by those ugly teabagger Cons. As she looks on helplessly.
“We are about to lose a tool that is proven to save Canadian lives, to save women’s lives, to save children’s lives,” she told the crowd Tuesday. “Please, please, do something.”
Or twisted into something monstruous, by these callous gun nutz.
“That’s a terrible thing, it’s a terrible, terrible thing to use these beautiful young women as a pawn in a game to advance a political agenda.”
When in fact the only political agenda was the Con plan to appeal to those too lazy, too cheap, too dumb, or too paranoid to register their guns, like they register their cars. And use it as a wedge issue to inflame and divide Canadians.
I believe the gun registry made our country a safer place. I believe it helped save the lives of police officers and paramedics, and other first responders. I believe it helped prevent violence against women, helped prevent suicides. I believe it made us more Canadian and less Amerikan.
I have seen the horror of gun violence up close, and it disgusts me.
So I will never forget what those evil Cons have done, and all those who put their greedy, selfish interests before the safety of all of us.
And of course, until the end of time.
I will always remember them...
