This day marks the 29th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre of December 6, 1989 at L’École Polytechnique where 14 young engineering students were shot and killed for no other reason other than simply being women.
Volunteers will be distributing white ribbons and collecting donations for the YWCA Dec. 6 Fund in the main Hospital lobby from 8-9 a.m. Please drop by to pick up information and learn more about what you can do to end violence against women at our table display and visit 16 Days of Activism against Gender-Based Violence to pledge to take action and commit to end gender-based violence, now and throughout the year. Visit the intranet for resources and tools to support patients experiencing domestic violence. For more information please contact Suhail Rafiq at Suhail.Rafiq@sinaihealthsystem.ca or ext. 7519.
