The Montreal Massacre

Dec. 6 is the 27th anniversary of the Montreal Massacre and the Labrador West Status of Women’s Council, in conjunction with other groups, is holding a service of remembrance for the victims



The École Polytechnique massacre, also known as the Montreal massacre, occurred on December 6, 1989, at the École Polytechnique in Montreal, Quebec, Canada


Twenty-five-year-old Marc Lépine, armed with a Mini-14 rifle and a hunting knife, shot 28 people, killing 14 women, before committing suicide


He began his attack by entering a classroom at the university, where he separated the male and female students. After claiming that he was "fighting feminism" and calling the women "a bunch of feminists," he shot all nine women in the room, killing six. He then moved through corridors, the cafeteria, and another classroom, specifically targeting women to shoot. Overall, he killed fourteen women and injured ten other women and four men in just under 20 minutes before turning the gun on himself. His suicide note claimed political motives and blamed feminists for ruining his life. The note included a list of 19 Quebec women whom Lépine considered to be feminists and apparently wished to kill.

The incident led to more stringent gun control laws in Canada. It also introduced changes in the tactical response of police to shootings, changes which were later credited with minimizing casualties at the Dawson College shootings.


Shannon Curlew with the council said it’s important for people to remember events like this, even though it’s sad to do so. She said she herself remembers the feeling when the massacre happened at École Polytechnique in 1989.
“I was only six and I didn’t know what was happening but I knew that women had been hurt or killed,” she said. “There was a feeling in the air that something bad had happened.”
The service is being held at the College of the North Atlantic, Room 112 and is non-denominational. The College, along with the Hope Haven and Ministerial Association, are also partners in the event.
It begins at 11:30 and will last for an hour, with refreshments to follow. For more information, call the Women’s Centre at 944-6562.

After his suicide, Lepine’s actions were examined by forensic psychiatrists who attributed the killings to a possible personality disorder, psychosis, or attachment disorder. Sociologists claimed he may have suffered from isolation and was influenced by his own poverty and violence in the media. Yep. Blame it on TV. Sociologists. Pah. The event has been described as a “pseudo-community” type of “pseudo-commando” murder-suicide, in which the perpetrator targets a specific group, usually in a public place and intending to die in “a blaze of glory“. I don’t know about the glory part, but I agree with the blaze. A police psychiatrist noted “extreme narcissistic vulnerability” demonstrated by fantasies of power and success combined with high levels of self-criticism and difficulties dealing with rejection and failure. He attempted to compensate for his feelings of powerlessness and incompetence by a violent and grandiose imaginary life.


Other theories were that Lépine’s experiences of abuse as a child had caused brain-damage or led him to feel victimized as he faced losses and rejections in his later life. Monique wondered whether Lépine viewed her as a feminist, and thought the massacre might have been an unconscious attempt to get revenge for her neglect while she pursued her career, and for his sister’s taunts. Whatever Lepine’s state of mind when he killed the young women at Ecole Polytechnique, The Montreal Massacre, as it will be forever known by Canadians, is regarded as a hate crime against women.
