Candles and Remembrance

On December 6, 1989, between 5:10–5:30 p.m., female students at École Polytechnique de Montréal, were the victims of a school shooting – a mass murder that led to the death of 14 innocents.
The perpetrator, 25 year old Marc Lépine, a woman hater, shot 28 women with a Ruger Mini-14 rifle and then cowardly turned the gun on himself.
Lépine began his attack by entering a classroom at the university, where he separated the male and female students. After claiming that he was “fighting feminism” and calling the women “a bunch of feminists,” he shot all nine women in the room, killing six. He then moved through corridors, the cafeteria, and another classroom, specifically targeting women to shoot.
His suicide note, according to Wikipedia, claimed political motives and blamed feminists for ruining his life. The note included a list of 19 Quebec women whom Lépine considered to be feminists and apparently wished to kill.
