Friday December 6th, 2019

Today we pause to remember the thirtieth anniversary of the Montreal Massacre the anti-feminist attack which lead to the shooting deaths of 14 females engineering students at Ecole Polytechnique on December 6, 1989.  It is an event that still leaves a lingering sense of trauma for many in Quebec and across Canada.
