In 2015, on the eve of Valentine's day, the people of Halifax would learn that they aren’t exempt from the type of nightmares that play out on American news stations.
A local 19 year old James Gamble and his girlfriend, 23 year old American Lindsay Souvannarath, had taken the first steps in their plot to shoot and kill as many people as possible in the Halifax Shopping Centre food court before taking their own lives, just like the murderous pair they idolized… the Columbine shooters.
In ‘Part 6 - Lindsay and the Columbiners’ we will be joined by author/journalist Rachel Monroe who helps us better understand the stranger than fiction Columbiner subculture she has been researching for the better part of a decade.
