I have never really been able to find the words to describe how the Montreal Massacre affected me. It is a tangled jumble of emotions: disgust, disbelief, shock, anger, sadness, hope, determination among others.
I wasn't prepared for this type of crime, none of us were. I thought it was a minimum expectation of society that an angry mentally ill man would not be running around with an assault rifle, a weapon designed solely for a war zone.
Nineteen years later we have a Government that is philosophically opposed to gun control and pay equity. And for that I don't have any words either.
