  • On December 8th 1989, Lloyd Robertson said on CTV National News: Now that we know who the killer is, the question of course, is: why did he do it? This hard-hitting video addresses that question, and looks at how the Canadian media has shaped our understanding of the Montreal Massacre by ignoring the issue of violence against women. Looking back at the worst mass murder in Canadian history, the artist asks what lessons would time and distance show us in the media s portrayal of this tragedy? A valuable asset to senior high school communications and post-secondary Women s Studies courses.
