A vigil is being held on Thursday to mark the anniversary of the deaths of 14 women, who were gunned down at Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal.
The vigil has been organized by members of the Canadian Federation of University Women Kitchener-Waterloo.
It will take place at the St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church on Queen Street in Kitchener starting at 6 p.m.
CFUKW members say they also want to honour the many victims who have died by domestic violence, the thousands of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls and LGBTQ2S people.
Today, #UWaterloo engineering students, faculty, staff and community members commemorated the innocent lives lost in the 1989 massacre at École Polytechnique. May we honour them by continuing to fight for an end to violence against women. #December6 #UWaterlooRemembers pic.twitter.com/JtS0YEQ5IV— University of Waterloo (@UWaterloo) December 6, 2018
