Dec 6th: National Day of Remembrance

On this day, Dec 6th 2014, the 25th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre, I would like to thank everyone who came out to the Vigil at lunch on Thursday.

Our screening of the NFB/CBC co-production After the Montreal Massacre generated much interesting discussion, and plans for future conversations.

I would also like to invite everyone to consider funding the IndieGogo campaign for a new documentary on issues around violence Against Women, titled A Better Man.
