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 7 - Lindsay, the Internet, and Radicalization’, we will be joined by investigative journalist Mack Lamoureux (Vice) who will open our eyes to the troubling world of online radicalization in the context of Lindsay Souvannarath’s case.
