A crowd gathers at Philosopher's Walk to honour the victims of the Montreal Massacre

A large crowd gathered at Philosopher’s Walk near Bloor St. and University Ave. for the Women Won’t Forget vigil, marking the 25th anniversary of the murders at L’Ecole Polytechnique in Montreal.

Philosopher’s Walk is the site of 14 trees planted in memory of Geneviève Bergeron, Hélène Colgan, Nathalie Croteau, Barbara Daigneault, Anne-Marie Edward, Maud Haviernick, Barbara Klueznick, Maryse Laganière, Maryse Leclair, Anne-Marie Lemay, Sonia Pelletier, Michèle Richard, Anne St-Arneault, and Annie Turcotte, gunned down because they were women who dared to be educated.

Since then, December 6 has been marked as the National Day of Action and Remembrance on Violence Against Women.
