On Dec. 6, the National Day of Remembrance and Violence Against Women, the University of Calgary held a memorial to commemorate the murder of 14 women at L'Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal in 1989. On that day, Marc Lepine, armed with a rifle, terrorized a class of 60 engineering students. Lepine separated the women from the men, declared his hate for feminists and shot at the group. Lepine killed 14 women.
During the U of C memorial, 14 female students lit a candle for each woman killed.
