The 14 young women murdered on this date 30 years ago in Montreal were remembered at a vigil in Owen Sound.
Under brilliant sunshine and flags at half-mast in front of Georgian College, 14 young women held the names and photos of the victims and each placed a white rose in a basket to form a bouquet. The event was arranged by Violence Prevention Grey Bruce and hosted by the College.
Organizer Carrie Shute said the memory of the victims must live on.
"We want the young people of our future to know that this event occurred and we want to prevent it from happening in the future so remembering and connecting as a community really helps us show our solidarity to end violence against women," said Shute.
A 15th rose was added to the bouquet to symbolize all women who are victims of gender-based violence.
