Dawson marks shootings anniversary with Peace Garden
From an elementary school's choir to the sound of the bagpipes, Radio Noon with Bernard St-Laurent follows the ceremonies at Dawson College marking the fifth anniversary of the shootings at the CEGEP.
18 year old student Anastasia De Souza was killed while 19 others were wounded during the noon hour rampage. Five years later, the faculty and students of Dawson have turned that horrifying event into a beautiful garden dedicated to peace.
Listen as Radio Noon mixes the memories of Montrealers and former students with today's commemoration ceremonies. You'll hear student garden volunteers, professors, Dawson head Richard Fillion, Montreal Mayor Gérald Tremblay, Montreal Police Chief Marc Parent, a United Nations reverend, and an Algonquin elder.
