I Remember 14 Times

On December 6, 1989, a young man walked into his school, at 5 P.M. and said, “I hate feminists!” And proceeded to kill 14 women and then shot himself.


A dark day in Canadian history.


The shooter’s name is Marc Lepine.


… I have struggled with this post all day. I believe it is a story worth writing (and reading) about; however, I don’t think I can do justice to these women’s memories, nor cover it properly enough. So, instead, I will lead to a few sites that I believe DO cover this event very well.


As such, I’m suggesting TruTV, a television station that covers all sorts of crimes in great and true details. The other site I came across quite by chance,  but is pretty interesting. It’s Heroines.ca – a site written by Merna Forster. She has a fine tribute there.




    • Yes, a wonderful site! And I’m sure to pick up your “Women in History” books as well. Unfortunately, only your second book is available on Kobo. 😦
      Thanks for dropping by!
