I'm not up on the news and i have limited media access right now. I've heard of some problems from my neighbor who is from Montreal. This sounds really intense. Sending love, support and gratitude that you are safe.

A minority Parti Québécois government was elected and at the moment that Prime Minister, Pauline Marois, was giving her speech this happened : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MXVCa0pTHQ

The Parti Québécois has traditionally been seen as a French-speaking party, but anyone could of voted for the PQ on September 4th.
The gunman spoke some English, but he is clearly mentally ill.
At the moment there is a French-English clash and it needs to be stopped.
I started a Facebook page on the matter: https://www.facebook.com/respectquebec
We are taking things one day at a time.

Tomorrow on October 1st there will be a fundraising show to financially help the daughter of  the technician killed on election day. People will also be able to give a donation to the other technician injured on that tragic night. Celine Dion and Arcade Fire are the top Montreal artists: http://montrealmetropolis.ca/metropolis/concert-en.aspx?idConcert=970

This event will hopefully bring people together!
