Darcy McGee was assassinated as an MP.
It resulted in Canada's last public hanging.
It was long ago but, it happened in Canada.

I thought of Darcy McGhee but he was a Father of Confederation. Sir John A MacDonald was Prime Minister and it was a hundred and fifty years ago. Americans were assassinating Presidents then and
they're doing it now.
The late President Ronald Reagan was the last one shot, though not killed.He never went anywhere without massive protection after that.
i would be surprised if security around the current president and his family isn't as tight as it possibly
I imagine if Senator Bernie Sanders was successful he might be equally at risk.
He is promising a revolution.
Most of the programs the Senator is proposing are identical to those provided to the Cuban people
by Fidel Castro's revolution.
So far as the bellicose billionaire's promises are concerned ,he has barely stopped short of seven virgins for every man in a paradise on earth or Playboy Clubs for the masses.
If elected, his too is a revolution of sorts.
As far as Sanders is concerned, his promises are the same he has made throughout his career,
In all those years, he never had to deliver because he was never aligned with a machine that could.
These are interesting times.
Even as we watch, political parties are hi-jacked with ease.
For all intents and purposes , Trump has hi-jacked the Republican Party.
Senator Sanders has done the same with the Democratic Party.
Stephen Harper did the same with the Canadian Progressive Conservative Party very few years ago.
"Home-grown terrorists" is a common reference in every country. Even as far away as Australia.
Before our very eyes, the government of arguably the most powerful country in the world is being taken over by vernacular filled with exaggerated claims popular with wrestling fans.
Not even Steven Spielberg has ever considered that as a plot for a horror movie.
