We remember December 6

14 women were killed at École Polytechnique on December 6, 1989.

Over 35 women and girls in Ontario were killed by men who were either a former or current intimate partner, a family member, or someone known to them in 2020.

First, mourn. Then take action for change. We remember December 6.
