Premier of Quebec rushed from stage amid security scare

Just saw this on the wires.......

Sept 4 | Wed Sep 5, 2012 12:23am EDT


Security guards abruptly rushed the leader of Quebec's separatist party from the stage after an armed man shot and injured two people outside the Montreal venue where she was speaking.

The shooter said on camera : « The anglos are waking up! The anglos are waking up! »

Frightening...

What a terrible idea. As a former Quebec resident and English Only speaking Quebecker this will not help the cause of the Anglo Speakers. They are causing more harm and only delegitimizing their chances of succeeding within their goals. Sad day that the PQ won, and a sad day that the Anglo's have reacted so poorly.

Two persons are seriously injured (gun shots) and the suspect got really close to the Prime Minister of Québec.

SouthernHab's title is seriously stupid.

The suspect was yelling, in broken French, "The anglos are waking up! The anglos are waking up!" but he does not, I hope, represent the Anglo quebecois. He looked mentally challenged.

If you want to discuss politics, I advise you to go to the politics subforum.

Now I really hope the report of one death isn't true.

Sweet jesus. This is going to be awful. I moved up to Canada to leave the insane people with guns behind. Guess you can only fear-monger for so long.

The shooter in question is probably not an anglo. he was expressing himself in french, and what seemed to me was a Quebec accent. blaming the "anglo's" is definatly not the right thing to do at the moment,

Yes. I'm french speaking and voted for the PQ, but I don't believe this crazy guy represent the anglo community at all. They have more class than that.

Crazy ****.. but I think it could have been way way worse. Did you guys see the weapon? I'm actually surprised that only one person died.

Also, I have a feeling that the fire on the back door was light up so nobody could escape while the shooter is inside.

Assassination attempt against our brand new PM and we're to blame ? The English media about Québec politics is far worse than the French media is about the Habs...

general warning

try to keep away from the politics talk here, head to the politics board (link can be found in the lounge) for that.

this thread is for the discussion of the tragic event in montreal tonight ONLY.

I have also edited the title, so stop bickering about that.

What hapenned is horrible, but you know how it is in QC, even if it's only ONE idiot, it only takes a little group of people with that opinion to make it heard.

I can't believe things like that can happen in here, sad to hear somebody died during what was suppose to be a fun night for the PQ fans.

That's exactly what I fear man. I am a francophone who want to an English university and I know that there are more things that unite us, that they're things that divide us. It would be sad if one idiot would divide the Anglos and the Francos even more...

I hope the MLNQ won't use this event to ***** against anglos...

I'm also a francophone and I'm well aware of what could happen following that incident. I'd hate to start another war in QC, I'm dead tired of QC being divided all the time.

I hope that truck doesn't mean other people were involved, I hope it's the last we hear of that kind of stuff, is it me or we seem to hear way more often about these kinds of things in the 2 or 3 previous weeks. A lot of crazyness lately in MTL.
