Polytechnique Montreal Holds Commemoration on 27th Anniversary of Deadly #MontrealMassacre

Polytechnique Montréal held a simple ceremony today to mark the 27th anniversary of Canada's worst mass shooting.

On this day in 1989, 14 women were shot and killed at the engineering school by a gunman professing to hate feminists.

The school says it wanted its commemoration to have a more personal touch this year.

In a ceremony this morning, staff members placed 14 white roses at the memorial plaque on the south west side of campus.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau issued a statement Tuesday, saying the victims were killed "simply because they were women."
