The Mounties didn’t tell the public the murders were precipitated by domestic violence. For days, rumours swirled that the gunman’s ex-partner was among the first killed (she was not) while advocates urged officials to speak loudly and clearly about the normalized male violence underlying such deadly attacks (they did not)… “For those of us who have experienced how male violence destroys lives, it was an extreme and actualized version of the male rage and aggression targeting those who are supposed to be the closest to them,” reads a statement on the murders from the Transition House Association of Nova Scotia.
