The Government of Saskatchewan is marking today — the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women — by remembering the deaths of 14 female engineering students killed at Montreal’s l’École Polytechnique in 1989.
The commemoration date was established by the Parliament of Canada in 1991.
Minister Responsible for the Status of Women Tina Beaudry-Mellor says we all have a role to play in standing up against gender-based violence.
All MLAs will wear the white ribbon as a symbol to mark the importance of December 6.
The White Ribbon Campaign is a movement to raise awareness of violence against women and girls, symbolizing the commitment to ending violence against women and girls.
