Events and vigils held in remembrance of women murdered at École Polytechnique

December 6, 2021
Several organizations in Canada will be observing the 32nd anniversary of the École Polytechnique massacre today. Polytechnique Montréal hosted White Rose Week last week to raise money for the next generation in engineering, and will be laying wreaths made of roses in front of the commemoration plaque this morning at 8:30AM. The City of Montréal and Comité Mémoire will shine 14 beams of light into the sky as part of an event that will be broadcast on the Polytechnique’s social media accounts. The University of Windsor will be observing the day with an in-person event at 11 AM EST at the Memorial of Hope on campus. The vigil will also be live streamed online. Okanagan College’s campuses will be holding a candlelight vigil as a symbolic commitment to end violence against women. Polytechnique Montréal | UWindsor | Castanet (National)
