Montreal Massacre 29-years later: Say their names. Remember. Take action. | InsideOttawaValley.com

On December 6 every year, Canadians remember the 14 women killed for being women at the Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal on that day in 1989.

Nearly 30 years later, not much has changed. In 2017, 84 per cent of homicide victims in Canada killed by a current or former intimate partner were women. In the first eight months of 2018 alone, 106 women and girls were killed in Canada, primarily by men. Indigenous women and girls continue to be killed at a rate six times higher than others.

There are more than 550 women’s shelters and transition houses across the country for women and children fleeing violence, according to the Women’s Shelters Canada’s internal database. That may sound like a lot, but much more are needed. In Women’s Shelters Canada’s yearly reports, the turn away-rate for shelters has consistently remained at 70 to 75 per cent from 2014 to 2018 due to lack of capacity and resources.

In Memory

I thought “where in the USA did that happen?”

then, the story repeated. Canada, Montreal.

I pulled off the road, turned off my vehicle and just cried.
