Charlie Hebdo shooting: Remembering the victims

(Toronto Star)
Graphic: Pascal LeFevre


The twelve victims: Stephane "Charb" Charbonnier (the editor), Bernard "Tignous" Verlhac, Jean "Cabu" Cabut, Georges "Wolinski" Wolinski, Bernard Maris, Philippe Honore, Elsa Cayat, Mustapha Ourrad, Michel Renaud (a guest editor), Frederic Boisseau, Ahmed Merabet and Franck Brinsolaro (policemen) = Sacre bleu! I concede a terrible kind of harsh, improbable karma. We mourn popular, revered journalists and cartoonists, fine cops and a caretaker shot in the Charlie Hebdo building by the Muslim barbarians/slaughterers. A tragic end. Hmm, what price do we envision to achieve urgent peace?
