Our Statement on the Anniversary of the Montreal Massacre

Every year as we reflect on the tragedy of the École Polytechnique massacre, we are reminded of the sacrifices made by women who came before us, to forge a path for women to come.  The women who flouted social convention and determinedly went after their dreams.  The women who would have numerous barriers to their success – strictly because of their gender. The women who ultimately lost their lives because of hatred and misogyny.  The 14 women who were murdered 29 years ago today lost their lives because of a small-minded man raging against feminism. Today and every day, we honour their sacrifice. We applaud their courage.  We mourn their devastating loss, and we renew our resolve to creating a world free from violence against women.
