The University of Prince Edward Island, along with the Canadian Commission for UNESCO (United Nations Education, Science and Cultural Organization), present Science as a Right, a panel discussion in recognition of the United Nations Human Rights Day on Monday, December 10, 2018 from 7 to 9 PM at the Beaconsfield Carriage House, 2 Kent Street in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. In this time of alternate facts, fake information, and psychological manipulation by seeming authority that tries to make us doubt what constitutes real science, it is important to recognize that even if science seems in conflict with immediate economic or political goals, making the truth public is essential for accurate economic and political decisions.

December 6 is the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence against Women in Canada. Established in 1991 by the Parliament of Canada, this day marks the anniversary of the murders in 1989 of 14 young women at l'École Polytechnique de Montréal.

The PEI Advisory Council on the Status of Women will hold the annual Charlottetown Memorial Service marking the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women from 12 noon to 1:00 pm on Thursday, December 6 at Memorial Hall, Confederation Centre of the Arts. The theme of the PEI Purple Ribbon Campaign this year is, “Time to step up. Be ready to prevent violence against women.” Candles will be lit in remembrance of the fourteen women murdered in the Montreal Massacre of 1989 and each of the ten Island women murdered since that year.

UPEI will observe the day by lowering the flags in front of Kelley Memorial Building to half-mast.
