On December 6, the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, we remember fourteen young women who in 1989 were murdered because they were women in what became known as the Montreal Massacre. We remember nine women since 1989 murdered on Prince Edward Island by men who knew them. Join others in your community to light a candle of remembrance, to remember, to reflect, and to act so these murders end.
