Valery Fabrikant,

Born 1940 in Minsk, USSR - a former associate professor of mechanical engineereing at Concordia University. He is best known for his murder of four colleagues.

Born in the Soviet Union, he immigrated to Canada in 1979 and began teaching at Concordia in 1980. Fabrikant blamed his colleagues for his being denied tenure on four successive occasions and for attempting to have his employment terminated. He also accused the university of tolerating the practice of academics being listed as co-authors on papers to which they have not contributed; in 1992, he had gone to court to try to have the names of several colleagues removed from works he had written in the 1980s.

A campaign of harassment aimed at members of faculty culminated in a shooting rampage on August 24, 1992 on the ninth floor of the Henry F. Hall building at Concordia. Killed in the shooting spree were Departmental Chair Phoivos Ziogas and Professors Matthew Douglas, Michael Hogben, Aaron Saber. A departmental staff secretary, Elizabeth Horwood, was injured.

Fabrikant represented himself at his trial. After several weeks of eccentric behaviour, the judge suspended the proceedings in order to conduct a hearing into Fabrikant´s mental fitness to stand trial. He was eventually found fit, and after five months of proceedings, the judge stopped his defense, so the jury had no choice but to find him guilty.

Fabrikant is serving a life sentence at Archambault Prison in Sainte-Anne-Des-Plaines. Fabrikant is a notable usenet user known for posting in newsgroups, particularly can.general and can.politics, with his claims that he is the innocent victim of a conspiracy theory against him.

The Fabrikant incident resulted in a series of investigations and a formalization of research ethics guidelines by Canada´s research funding agencies. An investigation on the conduct of the faculty in Fabrikant´s department revealed that many of Fabrikant´s claims were indeed true. The three researchers who were the primary target of Fabrikant´s allegations have since had their research accounts frozen by NSERC for misappropriating research funds and have been forced to take early retirement.

Do they teach spelling and grammar at Athabasca? Perhaps Concordian students should check it out.
