J.H. Burns outlines the shooting of Don Dunphy at the hands of Premier Paul Davis’ security outfit that took Newfoundland & Labrador by force two weeks ago, and tries to make some sense out of the mess of the information given to the public.
“It’s entirely a light-based installation, except there will be the words “Good Little Girl.” A reference to the kind of culture that breeds the idea of purity and teaches little girls that they should be pure and if they’re not careful they might become tainted — and that tainted equals worthless,”
