There will be a number of ceremonies across the country today for the victims of the Montreal massacre that took place back on December 6th, 1989.
14 women were killed at an engineering school at École Polytechnique by a gunman expressing his hatred for feminists and women in general.
There were also 14 people, who were injured before the gunman, 25-year-old, Marc Lépine, took his own life.
Torontonians will be paying homage with a vigil that will be held at Philosopher’s Walk at the University of Toronto’s St. George campus and that event is expected to get underway at 6 p.m. According to event organizers this year’s event will also be honouring missing and murdered indigenous women.
In Bancroft, a rally is set to take place for three women who were killed in a local shooting this past September.
There will also be a number of Canadian landmarks like the CN Tower and Olympic Stadium in Montreal that will be lit up in red to honour the victims.
