Quebec connection to Newtown tragedy

Posted By: Canadian Press · 12/18/2012 8:52:00 PM

The Quebec uncle of a teacher killed in Friday's school massacre says he's revolted by how easy it is to get high-powered weapons in the U-S.

Francois Rousseau's 30-year-old niece Lauren was a substitute teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut.

Her Canadian-born father, Gilles Rousseau, told Radio-Canada he wanted to see his daughter's body but was informed it would not be possible.

He says the rounds 20-year-old Adam Lanza used were so powerful they ripped through the school's walls and left holes in his
daughter's car.
