Statement from MLA Alana Paon on National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women – December 6, 2018 [PC Party]

“On this sombre anniversary of the murders of 14 young women at L’Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal in 1989, we gathered at the annual ceremony to recognize this important day at Province House in Halifax. Women and men of all backgrounds gathered, united, to remember those women, but also all women who are missing, murdered or have experienced violence.

I was joined by Cape Breton-Richmond constituents Laurie Pottie, Noelle and Annie Doucette of the Potlotek First Nation. I was honoured to have them as my guests in the Legislature for this meaningful day and I thank them.

Laurie Pottie is a local artist who has created a beautiful painting titled Red Justice Blowing in the Wind, part of a national movement honouring missing and murdered Indigenous women. Her painting (attached) was displayed in the foyer of Province House where attendees had a chance to view the painting and reflect on its meaning.”
