St. John's College held a service today on National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

stjohn 2In 1989, 14 women lost their lives in the Ecole Polytechnique massacre. In 1991, the government named December 6 as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, marking the anniversary of those murders.

Today, St. John's College held a memorial in their chapel, inviting both women and men to honour those women who have been victim to violence. 

"This is an opportunity for the entire university community to engage in remembrance and commemoration as a way to show solidarity with those who have experienced gender-based violence, particularly women," said Edgar French, spiritual care coordinator at the U of M, in a statement. "[We] recommit ourselves to the essential work of countering gender-based aggression explicitly and implicitly."

Elder Marlene Kayseas, Indigenous Student Centre's Elder-in-Residence, was invited to speak. Marcia Friesen and Haya Izhar also spoke, both from the University.

This day is part of 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, which ends on International Human Rights Day, which is on December 10.
