Violence Prevention Grey Bruce is partnering with The Women's Centre, Women's House Serving Bruce Grey, Georgian College, M'Wikwedong, The United Way and the Men's Program to host this year's December 6th vigil. The 2019 commemoration marks 30 years since the murders of 14 women at l'Ecole Polytehnique in Montreal. They were killed because they were women.
We will mark this significant anniversary at Georgian College with a vigil from 12 noon to 1pm on Friday, December 6th to honour the victims and stand against this type of violence. The event is planned to take place outside and organizers request that attendees dress for the weather. The commemoration will be followed by a casual gathering in the campus cafeteria with hot chocolate and baked goods. Parking will be free.
