4 - The Montreal Massacre

In 1989, a lone gunman entered the École Polytechnique de Montréal. In just 20 minutes, 14 women were murdered and a further 10 women and 4 men were injured. The perpertrator killed himself, leaving behind a suicide note citing the reason for his crime as 'feminists'. This week we look at the Montreal Massacre, who Marc Lépine really was (who cares), and why he commited one of Canada's worst mass shootings in 30 years.
