On this day in 1989, 25-year-old Marc Lepine, screaming "I hate feminists!" shot and killed Anne-Marie Edward, Anne-Marie Lemay, Annie St. Arneault, Annie Turcotte, Barbara Daigneault, Barbara Marie Klucznik, Genevieve Bergeron, Helene Colgan, Maryse LeClaire, Maryse Leganiere, Maud Haviernier, Michele Richard, Nathalie Croteau and Sonia Pelletier.

Dozens of vigils, memorials and public events will take place across Canada today remembering these 14 women. We will gather to speak about the ongoing violence perpetuated by men against women and trans people that forms the basis of our rape-culture.

George Galloway speaking from Yellowknife!

On Nov. 24 former British MP George Galloway visited the Northwest Territories, part of a 10-day, 10-city pan-Canadian speaking tour.



Local sponsors of the visit include Alternatives North, Public Service Alliance of Canada, Northwest Territories Federation of Labour, and Union of Northern Workers.



Mr. Galloway is an internationally-recognized advocate for human rights and fair treatment for Palestinians. He has been an outspoken critic of western involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan, and led three humanitarian convoys to Gaza.

The right-wing minority government of Stephen Harper has just introduced Bill C-49.

The "Preventing Human Smugglers from Abusing Canada's Immigration System Act " that, among other things, allows the minister of public safety to declare any group of migrants coming in to Canada, a 'smuggling incident.'
