On Thursday, the PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women will host the annual Charlottetown Memorial Service marking the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
The theme of the PEI Purple Ribbon Campaign this year is, “Time to step up. Be ready to prevent violence against women.”
Candles will be lit in remembrance of the fourteen women murdered in the Montreal Massacre of 1989 and each of the ten Island women murdered since that year. The service will be from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m. at Memorial Hall in the Confederation Centre of the Arts on Thursday.
