Mon. Dec. 6, 1999 marks the 10th anniversary of the Montréal Massacre, when a gunman opened fire at the University of Montréal's École Polytechnique and killed 14 women. Since then, the day has been marked as a National Day of Action for Violence Against Women.
As with previous years, the University of Calgary is commemorating the anniversary with various activities, including a White Ribbon Campaign. Ribbons will be sold in MacEwan Hall from Wed., Dec. 1 to Fri., Dec. 3, and again on Mon., Dec. 6.
