Rose Campaign

Leave a comment

This rose commemorates Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. On December 6, 1989, fourteen young women were murdered at l’École Polytechnique, sparking pressure for gun control legislation. Twenty years later, 88% of Canadian women killed with guns are killed with a shotgun or rifle. Registering long guns saves lives. Last year, over 100,000 women and children entered shelters in Canada. Women need to live safely beyond shelter – not choose between poverty and returning to abuse. For women’s safety – Defeat Bill C-391. Invest in new housing. The Rose Campaign to End Violence Against Women & Girls.
