Attempted assasination in Quebec, Canada

An Anglophone tried to open fire on a Francophone politician and fortunately didn't succeed in hitting her, but tragically, he did shoot at least one other person:
Quebec’s separatist party, Parti Québécois, was interrupted after someone tried to assassinate its leader and province’s new Prime Minister, Pauline Marois, on Tuesday night.

Shouting “The English are rising!” in French, a man clad in a blue bathrobe opened fire on Marois as she gave her victory speech to jubilant supporters celebrating the party’s rousing electoral win.

Live bullets whizzed past Marois, who did not know what was going on until security quickly pulled her off stage in the middle of her speech.

Police knocked the deranged man to the ground, but not before two people were shot. A 40-year-old man was killed during the melee, and a 20-year-old man was wounded. A third man was treated for shock, officials report.

The incident marred a triumphant evening in which Marois won 55 seats, short of the 63 seats needed for a majority in the 125-seat National Assembly, but enough to make her Quebec’s first woman premier.
The following suggests where the gunman stands politically:
The election result was a bruising defeat for the incumbent Liberals, who have run the province for the last decade. Their leader, Jean Charest, lost his own seat during a campaign that showed the party to look old and worn out.
So was this an angry leftard who tried to shoot at the new prime minister, or a sick misogynist? For now, it's still unclear.
