This week, Drewby and Yergy discuss The École Polytechnique Massacre, also known as the Montreal Massacre, which was a mass shooting in Montreal at an engineering school affiliated with the Université de Montréal. Fourteen women were murdered and ten women and four men were injured.
On December 6, 1989, Marc Lépine entered a mechanical engineering class at the École Polytechnique and ordered the women and men to opposite sides of the classroom. He separated nine women, instructing the men to leave. He loudly stated that he was “fighting feminism” and subsequently opened fire, shooting all nine women in the room, killing six. Lépine proceeded through corridors, the cafeteria, and another classroom, targeting women for just under 20 minutes. He killed eight more before shooting himself in the head.
At the time, the incident was the deadliest mass shooting in Canadian history, only surpassed by the shootings in Nova Scotia taking place in April of this year.
