MONTREAL - The man charged in a deadly separatist rally shooting tells QMI Agency that he's "innocent until I appear before my peers."

Fishing-lodge owner Richard Henry Bain made the comments Wednesday in an interview with Claude Poirier, chief crime reporter for QMI's sister news channel LCN.

Bain, speaking from an east-end Montreal jail, gave a five-minute interview about the Sept. 4 shooting in which lighting technician Denis Blanchette was killed at a downtown nightclub.

The election-night rampage disrupted a victory speech by Premier Pauline Marois, who has since said the shooting was an assassination attempt.
