Press release: As feminists we insist there will be a gaping hole in the inquiry on future prevention unless components of a feminist analysis are included in the mandate of the inquiry.
“For us feminism is not a ‘dirty’ word. For others the word seems to be scary or spells “danger.” Our call for a feminist analysis was ignored by federal and provincial governmental departments during their deliberations on how to address the mass shooting atrocities of a man whose actions or behaviours can only be described as evil.” Jeanne Sarson and Linda MacDonald on what the scary word is all about.
John McCracken takes a look at the feedback on the federal/provincial announcement that there will be a review rather than a public inquiry on April’s mass shooting. “The good people of Nova Scotia, as it turns out, can smell a cover up from a mile away,” he concludes.
Open letter: Ten Liberal Members of Parliament were elected in this province of Nova Scotia, all signed this statement alleging there is a “feminists analysis” in the review process for the NS mass shooting. There is no evidence to back your statement.
Statement by Nova Scotia Feminists Fighting Femicide: “As feminists we are infuriated with this “father knows best” patronizing process of proceeding with a review versus an inquiry.”
