On Dec 6, 1989, at 5:10pm, a man with a gun a hunting knife, and a vendetta against feminists walked into École Polytechnique, and killed 14 women, and injuring 14 others, in what is known as the École Polytechnique massacre, and the worst gun-reated mass murder in Canada . He separated the men from the women in the classes he attacked, and only shot the women. Within 20 minutes, he turned the gun on himself so he could take an easy way out. The École Polytechnique massacre happened 26 years ago today. That man’s name means nothing but murder and death, so we will not give him the courtesy of granting him media attention. Instead, let us remember the victims, women who were in school to learn, who had hopes and dreams, family and friends, lovers and loving personalities. Let us remember

Geneviève Bergeron (born 1968), civil engineering student
Hélène Colgan (born 1966), mechanical engineering student
Nathalie Croteau (born 1966), mechanical engineering student
Barbara Daigneault (born 1967), mechanical engineering student
Anne-Marie Edward (born 1968), chemical engineering student
Maud Haviernick (born 1960), materials engineering student
Maryse Laganière (born 1964), budget clerk in the École Polytechnique’s finance department
Maryse Leclair (born 1966), materials engineering student
Anne-Marie Lemay (born 1967), mechanical engineering student
Sonia Pelletier (born 1961), mechanical engineering student
Michèle Richard (born 1968), materials engineering student
Annie St-Arneault (born 1966), mechanical engineering student
Annie Turcotte (born 1969), materials engineering student
Barbara Klucznik-Widajewicz (born 1958), nursing student

And all of the students who committed suicide after the massacre.
