Statement by the Prime Minister of Canada on the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women

Prime Minister Stephen Harper today issued the following statement to mark the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women:

“On December 6, 1989, the lives of 14 innocent and promising young female students were taken in a depraved act of violence at l’École Polytechnique de Montréal, simply because they were women.

“While we will never fully understand this atrocity, our Government is committed to helping ensure that it does not happen again by making our streets and communities safe for women, girls and all Canadians.
