Mr. Speaker, I rise today because 33 years ago on this day, horrific act of violence changed our country. Yeah. On December 6th, 1989, 14, women were murdered at the Cole Polytechnique Dema. When a gunman walked in, separated the women from the men and opened fire A, they were murdered because they were women.
