  • Thomas remembers women who lost their lives to violence

There were 14 women murdered in the École Polytechnique massacre in 1989 and 10 P.E.I. women killed by intimate partners or close acquaintances.

"Most women are able to survive the violence against them but every six days one woman in Canada is murdered by a man who said he loved her", Brown said.

"They're the women who cleared the path".

The first female civil engineer to graduate from Polytechnique, Michele Thibodeau-Deguire, is chair of the board of directors of Polytechnique.

In Montreal, a wreath of white roses will be placed at the commemorative plaque at the school where the shooting occurred.

While working conditions may have improved, Thomson says she's aware women remain in the minority in the science and tech fields.

Between 5pm and 10pm, fourteen beams of light will illuminate the skies above Mount Royal, commemorating the women who were killed.

Fourteen women were killed at École Polytechnique nearly 30 years ago, simply because they were women.

"We're seeing things happening, we're seeing people being removed from their jobs and it becoming very public, and I think that is exactly what needs to happen for us to start seeing change, there needs to be repercussions", Johb said.

During a trip to China, Trudeau took part in a candle-lighting ceremony at the Canadian Consulate in Guangzhou to mark the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

"What happened in Montreal that day was a senseless act of violence that shocked the country, and the world", Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday.

He said more has to be done to combat gender-based violence at home and overseas through fighting injustice and inequality.

"Today is a day to reflect on the reality that violence against women and girls remains pervasive in our society".
