On this date in 1989, 14 women were murdered at Montreal’s École Polytechnique by a gunman who targeted them for simply being female engineering students. The anniversary of the tragedy has since become Canada’s National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.

Today is the 100th anniversary of the Halifax Explosion…the disaster happened when two ships collided in Halifax Harbour and one of them, the Mont Blanc, exploded. About 2,000 people were killed and almost 10,000 more injured that day in 1917. To this day it’s still the worst human-made catastrophe in Canadian history. Our museum, Resurgo Place, has an exhibit…ANSWERING THE CALL – Moncton’s Response to the Halifax Explosion is a small, yet significant exhibit, developed to highlight the research results, as well as some captivating stories that were shared by members of our community. There will be a public opening reception for the new exhibit on Thursday, December 7, 2017 (10 a.m.) at Resurgo Place on Mountain Road. Light snacks and refreshments will be served. The exhibit will be on display in the Union Centre Gallery until Sunday, January 7th. Resurgo Place is located at 20 Mountain Road in Moncton.
