As a survivor of the shooting at Dawson College, I strongly deplore the holding of a pro-firearms demonstration at the memorial in front of École polytechnique, named la place du 6 décembre.

This memorial exists to commemorate the 14 women who were murdered at École Polytechnique in 1989.

The fight for the control of firearms is far from over. It is still possible in this country to obtain a semi-automatic weapon without having to disclose mental health history.

The protest scheduled on Saturday at this highly symbolic location demonstrates how insensitive opponents of gun control are. We need to continue the fight for public safety and for strong rules against the possession of these deadly machines.
