Last year, we participated in Women’s College Hospital’s annual commemoration of the December 6, 1989 École Polytechnique Massacre – 2014 marked 25 years since it happened. Amongst others, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne was present as a rose holder and presenter.

Below is a video of the full event. Make sure to check out Researcher Janice Du Mont’s excellent presentation on the history of recognition of violence against women as a pressing social issue.
