Concordia campus shooter blames his victims

November 6, 2007

Valery Fabrikant, the one-time engineering professor who who took the lives of four Concordia University professors in 1992, says that his actions were a "righteous attack against co-workers trying to steal his ideas." The shooter compares his actions to the shooting at Montreal's Ecole Polytechnique, saying that his victims were not innocents like the 14 women killed there in 1989.  Fabrikant is currently suing his former colleagues for $600,000 in damages because they "unfairly profited" from his research and "extorted" his documents.
