As the new premier-elect was finishing her speech, a security person rushed her off the stage suddenly.
2 minutes later, some PQ operatives came on stage, saying that they had to protect her as something happened. He then asked everyone to leave.
1 minute or so later, Marois came back and said the same thing. She mentioned a sound grenade.
3 minutes later there is news footage of a man lying on the pavement and a rifle.
I've never seen anything like this before and probably never will again.
If this was an assassination attempt I have one thing to say
I hate the PQ, and Marois. I think they are potentially dangerous.
But they won.
They won the election, fair and square.
No matter how much you hate or fear the other guy, you can't try to stop them by force.
Democracy is the cornerstone of our freedom, and we must respect it, even when it tells us the things we don't want to hear.
