    We all know about the importance of today and have probably thought about the terrible events that happened in Halifax 95 years ago during the explosion.

    Today has another special meaning. It is the anniversary of the 1989 l'École Polytechnique de Montréal masacre when 14 women were killed.
    The government declared this date as a time to reflect on the memory of these woman, but also to bring attention to the serious issue of violence against women in Canada.

    I know RC is all fun and games, but after seeing a very close friend deal with the aftermath of an attack, I want people to take a minute and think about it. Let's stop the silence on this issue. Make the victims feel comfortable to speak out and speak up instead of feeling ashamed. It is NEVER ok to hit a woman. Violence is never the answer.

    Thanks RC <3
