I believe we are still in shock over the Montreal Massacre that took place on December 6, 1989, now 25 years ago.

I also believe we should not hide our feelings of loss for our sisters and their families. The memories are still vivid to this day, and stand as a reminder that there is still so much hurt and violence in the world. Not only for women, but for their daughters, sons, nieces, and nephews. December 6 will continue to remind us, as sisters, to remain strong in our fight to end violence against women and children.

The Howe Sound Women’s Centre will be remembering the women we lost on that day 25 years ago. Join us on Saturday, December 6 for a candlelight vigil to honour the lives of our sisters lost, and in their memory, strengthen our own resolve to end violence for all women.
