The Brampton High School Shootings

By Kristi Lee | Canadian True Crime

In 1975, a teenager walked into his high school carrying two rifles in a black guitar case.

This is the story of the first ever mass shooting at a secondary school in Canada, and how it spurred changes to Canadian firearms laws.
