  • Monday, Dec. 6th is Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. On December 6, 1989, a gunman deliberately massacred 14 female engineering students at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal. It was a tragedy that shocked the national and forced us all to acknowledge the extent of violence against women in our society. December 6th is a day for women and men to reflect and work for change. Two years after the Montreal Massacre, a group of concerned men launched an awareness campaign on the issue of men’s violence against women. Men and boys were encouraged to wear a white ribbon as a pledge “never to commit, condone, or remain silent about violence against women.” Monday in homeform, white ribbons will be available to students willing to make a commitment to end violence. Both women and men can wear the ribbons. Violence is a societal issue that affects women, men and children alike. We can contribute to making our society a healthy one by supporting anti-violence work in our communities. Donations for the ribbon will be given to the local women’s shelter.
