Polytechnique Montreal Memorial on December 6

Circulated on Behalf of KFA Status of Women Representative, Cherylynn Bassani

Good Day!  

I would like to warmly welcome you to attend the Memorial on December 6th that has been planned so that together we can reflect on antifeminism and gender based violence and remember the lives of the 14 women who were shot down in their university and workplace on December 6, 1989 at Polytechnique Montréal in Montréal.  

The Memorial will take place outside near the pond (outside the Student Lounge 1202 in the courtyard) on the Trades Campus in Cloverdale from 12:00 to 12:30. Coffee and tea will be served outside prior to the Memorial.  

Gender based violence is all too real in our society, and being a polytechnic ourselves we share a unique affinity with Polytechnique Montréal. Please consider attending the Memorial, not only to remember the women who lost their lives on December 6, 1989 -but to show solidarity in our KPU community that gender based violence in any of its forms will not be tolerated. 


In solidarity,  



Cherylynn Bassani,  

Status of Women Representative, Kwantlen Polytechnic University
