North Coast Transition Society/Coast Mountain College to host Vigil tomorrow for National Day of Remembrance


The Multi purpose room at Coast Mountain College in Prince Rupert is
the host facility for Tuesday's vigil to remember the murdered women of Montreal's
Ecole Polytechnique Institute on December 6 1989

Tomorrow marks the anniversary of the murders of 14 female students at Ecole Polytechnique de  Montreal and as has been the remembrances of the past, the North Coast Transition Society will be holding a vigil at Coast Mountain College in the city to remember the women from Montreal and to take a stand against all gender based violence.

Tuesday's remembrance and vigil takes place from Noon to 1 PM in the Multi-Purpose room of the Prince Rupert Campus of the college. 

This years commemoration in the city comes only a few weeks past the tragic day at the Ocean Centre Mall which claimed the life of Patty Forman.  

That horrific incident will also  be on the minds of many of those taking part in the Prince Rupert vigil.

The Federal Government has an information page (which you can review here) that provides some background to the annual remembrance and calls for a moment of silence at 11AM.

Tuesday's Remembrance of remembers the victims of violence of December 6th.

Coast Mountain College has more on Tuesday's vigil here.
