In an interview with the Georgia Straight... Daisy Kler said, “I think Marc Lépine wanted to close down the doors and opportunities for women and make us fearful and not be so public, and our response is the exact opposite.”

She also claimed that no male leaders stood up and defended feminists after the massacre. “We expect to be defended as feminists, as civil-rights activists, as women who are participating in the struggle and freedom for women,” Kler said. “So we take the library on purpose because it is a public space and we want to be out, loud, and proud as feminists.”
