Comrade Jeff Hughes Murdered By RCMP
I have just been informed that Comrade Jeff Hughes of NF Canada was murdered by the RCMP at approximately 6 AM Pacific time yesterday morning, in Nanaimo, British Columbia.
The one sketchy news report so far indicates that around 10 shots were fired. I happen to know that Jeff did not own a handgun or other firearm, which is almost legally impossible in Canada in any case.
I am not going to say what I very much want to say at this point. Even I have sense enough to understand that would be neither helpful nor prudent. I will comment further when more details become known.
