National Day of Remembrance to be marked on Thursday

Ecole Polytechnique (2016)

Thursday is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women.

Nearly 30 years ago, on December 6th, 1989, fourteen women were murdered at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal.

The shocking tragedy led Parliament to designate December 6th as a national day of remembrance.

In Truro, the Lotus Centre will host a brief ceremony, guest speaker, and light lunch at the Marigold Cultural Centre from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

It's being hosted in partnership by the Colchester Sexual Assault Centre, the Mi'kmaw Family Healing Centre, the Lotus Place, and Third Place Transition House.
