We Remember

Today is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women and we remember those who have experienced gender-based violence and those who we have lost to it. It is also a time to take action.

On December 6th, we remember the women who were murdered in the École Polytechnique massacre or Montreal Massacre:

  • Geneviève Bergeron,
  • Hélène Colgan,
  • Nathalie Croteau,
  • Barbara Daigneault,
  • Anne-Marie Edward,
  • Maud Haviernick,
  • Maryse Laganière,
  • Maryse Leclair,
  • Anne-Marie Lemay,
  • Sonia Pelletier,
  • Michèle Richard,
  • Annie St-Arneault,
  • Annie Turcotte,
  • Barbara Klucznik-Widajewicz

As we mourn their loss and remember their lives, we reaffirm our commitment to fight the hatred that led to this tragedy, and the misogyny that still exists today.

In Canada and around the world, women, girls, 2SLGBTQQIA+ (two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, asexual, plus) and gender diverse individuals face unacceptable violence and discrimination.

Let’s recommit ourselves to ending gender-based violence in Canada which has been amplified by the COVID-19 pandemic.
