Women Won’t Forget: 25th anniversary of the Montreal massacre at L’Ecole Polytechnique

A large crowd gathered at Philosopher’s Walk for the Women Won’t Forget vigil to mark the 25th anniversary of the murders at L’Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. Philosopher’s Walk in Toronto is the site of 14 trees planted in memory of Geneviève Bergeron, Hélène Colgan, Nathalie Croteau, Barbara Daigneault, Anne-Marie Edward, Maud Haviernick, Barbara Klueznick, Maryse Laganière, Maryse Leclair, Anne-Marie Lemay, Sonia Pelletier, Michèle Richard, Anne St-Arneault, and Annie Turcotte, gunned down because they were women who dared to be educated. Since then, December 6th has been marked as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
