Young woman beated to death on Longueuil cycle path

Isn't this also terrorism?

Sadly, because of the events in Saint-Jean and Ottawa, people are talking about this savage attack on a woman simply for being a young woman cycling or jogging on a path - in the middle of Vieux-Longueuil, the old, dense centre of a large suburb on Montréal's south shore, not an area thought of as deserted or dangerous.

Yes, and it turns out she wasn't either cycling or jogging. She was just walking home after her shift, across the river in Montréal.

I'm familiar with that path as I've done it the other way when teaching ESL in Longueuil at the far end of it. Not very long, and lots of people - not at all a deserted area. I've cycled along it and also walked all the way - lots of people do. What is at issue is women's most elementary freedom to circulate, walking, cycling whatever, without the constant fear of being hit upon, humiliated, raped, robbed or even savagely murdered.
