Rating: Liked it ♥
Another book from the Crimes Canada series. This is book 2. Also short only 105 pages. This is about Marc Lépine who shot 14 female students on the campus of the University École Polytechnique de Montreal. Most of the book was about the issue of feminism and ‘radical feminists’ may have caused Lépine to commit this crime, by their treatment of him, he felt trapped and so on. At times it seemed the author was blaming the feminist for the crime. Not the victims, just that he felt angry and that he couldn’t advance in his life because of the actions of some feminists.
There isn’t much to say about Lépine’s life or the crime, there was no trial since he committed suicide, thus the intense speculation as to motive or what drove him to commit this shooting. Another interesting if brief read about a major crime that happened in Canada.
