Today marks an important day in Canada. It was 29 year ago that 14 women were murdered at École Polytechnique in Montreal.
Since that day, Canadians have been marking National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
Donna Brooks, who serves as the CEO of the YWCA in Prince Albert told paNOW today gives the public a chance to truly reflect on the issue.
“It gives us an opportunity to think about the women and girls whom violence is a daily reality and also to remember those that have died as a result of gender based violence,” she said.
