I wrote about the murders of Zainab, Sahar and Geeti Shafia and their father's first wife Rona over two years ago, when their bodies were found in the Rideau Canal in Kingson, Ontario:
Three or so weeks back, a submerged car was found in the Rideau Canal in Kingston, Ont., containing the bodies of three teenage girls and their aunt a story initially reported as Mysterious Death Of 4 Quebecers Baffles Kingston Police. When it emerged that the four female Quebecers were, in fact, Muslim, the tearful parents offered up a strange tale of an impromptu midnight driving lesson gone tragically wrong (Driving Lesson May Have Led To Drowning).
La Presse is now reporting that the girls' father, mother, and brother have been arrested en route to Montreal Airport, and that the deceased "aunt" or (alternatively) "cousin" was, in fact, the girls' father's first wife. The words "crime d'honneur" are beginning to creep into newspaper accounts.
Not over at The Atlantic Monthly, where a certain snippy dweeb whose name is too boring to type thought Phyllis Chesler and I were getting too worked up over North American "honour killings".
The girls' father, mother and brother are all now on trial for their murder, and we're a long way from "midnight driving lessons" gone "tragically wrong":
Later in July, detectives placed a bug in the family minivan, and were soon listening to conversations where Mr. Shafia called his daughters whores and exhorted the devil to "s on their graves."
That telling detail is from Christie Blatchford's fine trial coverage, and it gets to the heart of why "honour killing" is too disturbing for the multiculti diversity-celebrating relativists even to acknowledge.

Yeah, that sounds bright.
Shafias all found guilty of first-degree murder
In a rat-infested dungeon on a bread and water diet would be nice...but thanks for the good news.
Thanks for the ping, fanfan.
You’re very welcome Clive.
