Thirty years ago, 14 women were murdered in the halls of their engineering school at École Polytechnique in Montréal. They were targeted because they were women. As proud feminists, Alberta’s NDP Caucus recommits to fighting violence against women.

This appalling oped published on 30th anniversary of dismisses gun control movement (whose leaders are mostly women) as “emotional.” This sexist way of dismissing female advocates has been a common tactic since 1989

Thirty years ago, 14 young women were gunned down in an act of horrific violence that shocked people in BC, Canada, and around the world. Today, we ask all British Columbians to join us in remembrance and unite with us to end gender-based violence.

30 years ago today, a man walked into a Montreal school with a gun, singling out and killing 14 women in the name of "fighting feminism." Remember their names. Remember why we fight to end violence against women and girls.

30 years ago on December 6th, 1989 - 14 women were killed because they were women. We will never forget. 30 years later and gender-based violence and femicide continues. This MUST stop! We cannot go backwards. We must go forward.

Today our PM stands in the House diminishing what happened with his “those who identify as women” talk, as if that’s relevant, or comparable in any way with what happened. They were murdered solely because they were female

Say their names. Do not forget them. 14 women murdered on 06/12/89 because of misogyny. They dared to study engineering. I remember it like it was yesterday & it started a feminist flame inside me that will never go out

30 years ago, 14 women were shot dead at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal. Most were aspiring Engineers who never got the chance to practice their chosen profession. This hits home for me as my daughter is a Civil Engineer. Today we honour their memory. 🙏🏻

Since the Canada has witnessed 11 more mass shootings. That's one every 2.5 years, on average. We need to ban dangerous weapons now.
