National Day of Remembrance

Nineteen years ago on December 6th 1989 in Quebec, fourteen women were shot and killed, simply for being women. The gunman, Marc Lepine, blamed "feminists" for his failures in life.

Yesterday In Toronto a woman was stabbed to death by her husband .

Nothing much has changed. A woman is more often safer with strangers than with her own family and friends
