Thomas remembers women who lost their lives to violence

Montreal Massacre 20161206

Kimberley Young-Milani of the Circle Women's Collective lights a candle in remembrance during a ceremony at My Sisters' Place that honours the victims of the Montreal Massacre.

"Today marks the 28th anniversary of the day that 14 women were murdered at École Polytechnique de Montréal, exclusively due to their gender".

The Montreal Massacre was the deadliest mass shooting in Canadian history.

The names of all 14 victims read aloud, each life remembered, each life senselessly taken all those years ago. Family members and loved ones of the women slain will also be present, along with every Montrealer who wishes to attend.

The anniversary of the shooting is a good time to discuss guns laws in Canada "in order to diminish the chances that this kind of tragedy happens again", she said.

This week also wraps up 16 Days Against Gender Based Violence Kamloops, a first-ever collaboration between TRU Status of Women Committee, Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre, the Kamloops YMCA-YWCA Y Women's Shelter and TRU's Sexualized Violence Prevention and Response Manager. "We have to make the change".

The date also falls within the annual 16 Days of Activism campaign which begins on November 25 with the International Day for Elimination of Violence Against Women and runs until December 10 with Human Rights Day.

"It brought a very acute spotlight onto violence against women that it just doesn't happen in our homes or in far away places".

"I think it's really a positive thing what the Man Up group is doing".

The crowd sang all four verses of the solidarity song "This Tough Spun Web" before the ritual came to an end.

"We as individuals have a responsibility to respect everyone regardless of their gender", said Nagpal.

"It is really hard to understand we live, supposedly, in one of the best times in history", he said.
