Dec. 6 is Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

It is also the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre of Dec. 6, 1989 in which 14 young female engineering students were murdered.  Each year on this date, vigils are held across Canada.

The Comox Valley Transition Society will host a candlelight vigil on the lawn of the courthouse in downtown Courtenay at 7 p.m. on Dec. 6, in memory of all women, and their children, who have been murdered or are missing.

Men, women and children are invited to attend.
