Gathering at Nelson City Hall asked for remembrance and action on violence against women

Nelson residents including several elementary school classes attended a rainy ceremony on Friday in Nelson to remember the 14 women murdered in a mass shooting in Montreal on Dec. 6, 1989: Geneviève Bergeron, Hélène Colgan, Nathalie Croteau, Barbara Daigneault, Anne-Marie Edward, Maud Haviernick, Maryse Laganière, Maryse Leclair, Anne-Marie Lemay, Sonia Pelletier, Michèle Richard, Annie St-Arneault, Annie Turcotte, and Barbara Klucznik-Widajewicz.

The anniversary of the massacre has since been commemorated as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
