Over the past week, postsecondary institutions across Canada have commemorated the 31st anniversary of the École Polytechnique shooting in Montréal. December 6 is known as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women, and a number of institutions held virtual events in memoriam of the 1989 murders. University of Northern British Columbia held an online event as part of its Inspiring Women Among Us initiative, and Okanagan College co-hosted a Virtual Candlelight Vigil with a network of organizations and volunteers. University of Calgary also held a livestreamed event, as did the University of Guelph. Dalhousie University’s Women in Engineering Society held an online memorial honouring the memory of each of the 14 victims. Dal | Nation Talk | UoGuelph | UNBC | UCalgary (National)
