Once again, We Can BC will be hosting the Annual Shoe Memorial at the Vancouver Art Gallery steps on Dec 6th, 2015. It will run from approximately 8:00am to 3:00pm. Everyone is invited, and by attending you will be honouring the women who are victims of violence. The steps at the Robson Street Side of the Art Gallery have a list of victims and their shoes which mark their deaths. A brief ceremony will be held at 1pm.

The Significance of the Shoe Memorial:
It has been 25 years since fourteen women were selectively killed at the Ecole Montreal Polytechnique. Government and media no longer widely acknowledge this day. Only with your help can we remember the over 950 women murdered in BC since then, as well as those who came before them. Our common goal is 'that the names of the victims’ should never be forgotten. They are represented by each pair of shoes and the printing and display of their names. Join us and pay your respects to those who have been killed.
