To commemorate the feminicide that occurred at Polytechnique on December 6, 1989, the Canadian group The Tragically Hip released a music video on Monday from his song Montreal .
The video was produced by Mike Downie – brother of group leader Gordon Downie, who died of a brain tumor in 2017 – and by Tim Thompson from a recording of the song during a concert of the group at the Molson Center in 2000.
You can see the names and faces of the 14 victims of femicide as well as the beams of light that illuminate Mount Royal every December 6.
“Today, we express our support for the families of the 14 victims and the survivors of feminicide at École Polytechnique of 1989. We want to support their efforts against the possession and sale of semi-automatic assault weapons, ”the group expressed in a post shared on its social networks.
That's why The Tragically Hip put on sale this Monday a package including a t-shirt and two collection songs: Montreal and It's A Good Life If You Don't Weaken , in collaboration with singer Feist. All recipes will be donated to the PolySeSouvient group.
