Montreal Female Engineering Students

December 6, 1989, Marc Lepine went to the University of Montreal school of engineering, LÉcole Polytechnique de Montreal. He was armed with a knife and a semi-automatic rifle. He entered an engineering class, ordered the men out of the classroom and killed all of the female students. Before murdering the female engineering students, he is reported to have called the women feminists and to have stated he hated feminists. Lapine killed fourteen people that day and then he took his own life.

Many talented students, people with tremendous potential, died that day. This memorial can never honor the students enough. All we can do is name the victims. The students who died that day include:

Genevieve Bergeron
Helene Colgan
Nathalie Croteau
Barbara Daigneault
Anne-Marie Edward
