MONTREAL - A solemn memorial service was held in Montreal Saturday to mark the 14th anniversary of a mass murder that prompted tighter gun laws in Canada and the controversial national firearms registry. About 80 dozen people braved the cold as they gathered at Place du 6-Décembre, a park dedicated to the 14 women who were killed at the Ecole polytechnique. Another 12 students were injured in the shooting. A woman places flowers on the monument dedicated to Maryse Leclair during Saturday's ceremony.

As family members placed flowers at memorial markers, the names of each of the 14 victims were read aloud.

On Dec. 6, 1989, Marc Lepine, 25, walked into the engineering school with a semi-automatic rifle and, according to witnesses, shouted "I want the women. I hate feminists. You're all a bunch of feminists!

I vividly remember some douchebag in our university residence room whining coz a girl was watching the CBC coverage and Beverly Hills Cop II was on the movie network and he'd had enough of the coverage. Some people's children.

Thanks for posting those names.

(kinda off topic, but as a writer/journalist I'm baffled why they'd describe the gathering as "80 dozen" instead of hundreds.)

The Montreal Massacre...

I think the fact that the men in that class, left the room without thinking "who the fuck is this guy?" have had to deal with the biggest burdens of the indicidence... a burden that consisted of not stopping Lepine.

On Friday there were candles lit in the foyer of my school and you could buy roses and sign you'r ename for violence against women

I didn't even realize that the anniversary for the massacre was on Saturday, however I thought of it the minute I heard about the violence against women display..
