the results of last night’s election were absolutely predictable. the shock and indignation that i’m reading all over the internet since makes me wonder where everyone has been living for the past six months.
not predictable, of course, was the madman with the gun. i feel terrible for the victims and their families. this incident, by comparison with other attacks recently elsewhere, shows what a difference a ban on automatic/semi-automatic rifles makes… thankfully it wasn’t much worse.
maybe now that the election is over, the federal government will stop flying over us with fighter planes. as much as i prefer seeing my tax dollars going to fancy flying machines instead of, you know, sick grandmas and school kids, the constant flyovers are giving me nightmares.
all this cements how little this island has in common with this province and this country. who wants to join my new political party? i’m calling it “moi, montréal”, and the principal platform is that the island of montreal should be a independent city state, where not speaking both french and english makes you uncool, food trucks roam the streets freely, and tolerance is mandatory. don’t like it? we have 20+ bridges for your convenience, so long!
