Family Transition Place (FTP) asks the community to remember the 14 young women who were horrifically killed on December 6, 1989 at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal.
For many years, FTP has invited the community to honour the 14 women at an in-person vigil. Due to current Covid-19 restrictions, FTP will be hosting a brief vigil online on Sunday, December 6, 2020 at 11:30 a.m.
Last year was the 30th anniversary of the tragedy in Montreal and after last year’s vigil, members of the community met to discuss local issues related to domestic violence with the hopes of developing solutions on a municipal and provincial level. It is FTP’s hope to continue those important conversations again, when it is safe to do so.
As part of this year’s online observance, FTP’s Executive Director, Norah Kennedy, will take a moment to remember the 14 women, acknowledge all of the women we have lost to domestic violence over the last year, and offer ways for all of us to live in a community free of abuse.
