    December 6 is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women in Canada. Established in 1991 by the Parliament of Canada, this day marks the anniversary of the murders in 1989 of 14 young women at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal, who were killed because they were women. Unfortunately 30 years later, the effects of this tragedy are still felt, and gender based violence continues to be an issue.
