YWCA holds candlelight vigil to honour and remember women and girls murdered in 2022

The Muskoka YWCA is inviting the community to attend a candlelight vigil on Tuesday, December 6th, 2022 at the Huntsville Public Library to honour and remember the women and girls who died by femicide this year in Ontario.

A candle will be lit for each women and girl who was murdered during 2022 in Ontario and each name will be read to help remember and honour them.

The YWCA says the vigil is part of the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women — a day of remembrance that began in honour of the 14 women killed on Dec. 6, 1989, at École Polytechnique, also known as the Montreal massacre.

The event takes place on Tuesday December 6, from 4-6pm at the Huntsville Public Library.
