Sunrise Memorial – Winnipeg

It was my honor once again this year to photograph the sunrise memorial at Winnipeg’s Legislature.  Dec 6 is Canada’s Day of Remembrance and action on violence against women.  In 1989, when 14 women were shot to death in Montreal by a man deliberately targeting women on a busy campus, Canadians reacted with shock, sorrow and outrage.  A strong lobby formed to bring guns under control in Canada, work that continues to this day.

One of 14 Candle’s lite for the ceremony

This was a candle light ceremony also honoring Manitoba women who have lost their lives to violence.  It was nice to see 14 young candle lighters this year.
