QUEBEC — Quebec mosque shooter Alexandre Bissonnette told a prison social worker last fall that he regretted not having shot more people when he opened fire in a mosque in January 2017.
According to a statement from Cayouette that was read in court at Bissonnette’s sentencing hearing Monday, Cayouette said Bissonnette told her it’s not true that he didn’t remember what happened the night of the attack or that he heard voices.
Earlier Monday, the Crown presented evidence from Bissonnette’s computer that indicated the Quebec mosque shooter was obsessed with U.S. President Donald Trump, Muslims, Dylann Roof, mass shootings and feminists.
In the month before the shooting, Bissonnette was checking Trump’s Twitter feed every day and reading news about Trump on a daily basis, according to evidence presented at his sentencing hearing in Quebec City.
The contents of the computer reveal that in the days before the attack Bissonnette was almost daily watching videos and reading about Dylann Roof, who murdered nine black churchgoers in a South Carolina church in 2015.
