Honouring the Lives of Murdered Women  Children

London, ON - December 6th is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women. This year marks the 30th anniversary of the murder of 14 female engineering students at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal.

We also remember those women and children murdered in Ontario over the last year, including Maryhelen Johnston, who was killed by her intimate partner on May 12th in London.
