December 6: From the Montreal Massacre to Gun Control: the Inside Story
| On December 6, 1989, Marc Lépine walked into the
École Polytechnique in Montreal armed with an assault rifle. During the
next forty-five minutes he shot twenty-seven people. Fourteen of them - all
women - died.
After the Montreal Massacre, Heidi Rathjen, an engineering student at the school, joined forces with Wendy Cukier, a professor in Toronto, in an effort to change Canada's gun laws.
Against great odds and the opposition of gun clubs and hunting associations, Rathjen and Cukier, with the assistance of countless other Canadians, gradually built support for gun control. December 6: From the Montreal Massacre to Gun Control is the story of their campaign.
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book go to Heidi Rathjen's continuing cause, the Coalition for Gun Control.
Written by Heidi Rathjen and Charles Montpetit. Published by McClelland & Stewart, 1999.
