It has been 32 years since the École Polytechnique massacre. On that terrible day, 14 women were senselessly murdered. They had so much of their lives left to live and that was brutally taken from them.
The National Day for Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women was borne of this tragedy. A day to commemorate those lives lost and renew our commitment to ending violence against women.
We would like to take this opportunity to do just that. To remember those women, mourn the loss of their lives and recommit to ending the violence that resulted in their tragic deaths.
