Women's Studies Professor On White Male Terrorism In Canada


Robyn Bourgeois, an Assistant Professor at the Centre for Women's and Gender Studies at Brock University, writes in, 'The Conversation...'

White men were responsible for or currently face charges for the mass murders at the École Polytechnique in 1989, Mayerthorpe in 2005, Moncton in 2014, Calgary in 2014, Québec City in 2017, Toronto in 2018 (a van attack) and Fredericton in 2019. Those in Vernon, B.C., in 1996, Edmonton in 2014, and Toronto in 2018 (the shooting in the city’s Greektown neighbourhood) were perpetrated by racialized men.

Perpetrated by racialized men?

Marc Lépine, the white male who carried out the École Polytechnique shooting, was born Gamil Rodrigue Liass Gharbi.

Was he racialized, too?
