1. On December 6, 1989, a gunman walked into Montreal's École Polytechnique and fatally shot 14 young women.

    The young man's name was Marc Lepine, 25, and the way he murdered his victims was methodical.

    He separated the men from the women and, before opening fire on the classroom of female engineering students, he screamed "I hate feminists."
  2. The Montreal Massacre became a galvanizing moment in the collective Canadian memory when mourning turned into outrage about all violence against women.

    Tomorrow, Canadians will remember the 14 women who were murdered, those who were injured, and the many, many more whose lives were turned upside down by this event.
  3. On the 10th anniversary of the shooting, the fifth estate's documentary, Legacy of Pain, looked at the rippling aftermath from a number of perspectives, starting with the families of the murdered women.

  5. We asked CBC readers, viewers and listeners to share how they would be remembering the massacre at Ecole Polytechnique.

    Here's what some of them had to say:
  6. Ill never ever forget this intense silence in the Montreal transits the very next morning , everyone was in a state of shock !
  7. I used to work at a men's shelter and one of my clients was on campus when this occurred. The guilt and fear he carried with him was still a dark spectre on his soul.
  8. i will remember freaking out because my niece was there when the tragedy occurred. we were going nuts trying to get in touch with her. plus the remorse for those innocent people who were gunned down. an awful reminder that psychopaths can show up anywhere.
  9. We still morn, my girlfriends father was a professor and as chance would have it, his class was not in session that day. Montreal will never forget.
  10. this isn't just about the women who died its about all women who face abuse and violence everyday.
  11. Powell River BC will join other cities around the country by holding a Shoe Memorial to commemorate this event along with remembering BC women and girls who have died violent death. We are also providing information on the support services available in our little city to women and their children who find themselves in crisis.
  12. Others say they will honour these women through actions:
  13. Or any other abused person. By remembering one we remember them all. What do I do? I pick up my badge and go back to work. I text a positive message to my girlfriend. I "like" a post of a friend. I teach my son to love respect and care for everyone equally and fairly. I live the ten commandments and seven sacred teachings. And I don't ever stop trying to fight violence and hate and darkness. I will never forget. #allmencan #heforshe
  14. Geneviève Bergeron (born 1968), civil engineering student.

    The story below is about how a high school friend of Bergeron's is remembering the massacre 25 years later and on the other side of the country:
  15. The other 13 victims were:
