Urban Planner: December 6, 2012

Today: honour the women who lost their lives in the 1989 Montreal massacre, see your favourite Degrassi scenes re-enacted, and let a Spice Girls tribute band tell you what you really, really want for Christmas.

A 2008 candlelight vigil for the Montreal Massacre, held on the U of T campus. Photo by {a href="http://www.flickr.com/photos/mdmorin/3088858752/in/pool-torontoist"}mdmorin{/a} from the {a href="http://www.flickr.com/groups/torontoist/"}Torontoist Flickr Pool{/a}.


IN MEMORIAM: December 6, the anniversary of the Montreal Massacre, is now our National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women. Here’s a local community event, open to all who’d like to listen and learn. It will feature City Councillor Mike Layton and SlutWalk co-founder Heather Jarvis, among others. Centre for Social Innovation (720 Bathurst Street), 6 p.m–8:30 p.m., FREE.

MUSIC: Get ready for a very spicy, very ’90s Christmas. Wannabe: The Spice Girls Tribute Band—a group that offers accents, gospel choirs, and all the dance moves—invites you to an evening of singalong fun. There will also be present opening, mistletoe hanging, and a very special secret guest. Lower Ossington Theatre (100 Ossington Avenue), 7:30 p.m., $20.

COMEDY: What’s better than Degrassi Junior High? Getting to see it live! Well, sort of. At Comedy Bar, you can watch your favourite scenes from the teen soap opera be re-enacted by local comedians and sketch troupes that include Falcon Powder, Elephant Empire, and Tony Ho. The night will be hosted by Ladystache, and there will be special guests (including a Zit Remedy cover band). Comedy Bar (945 Bloor Street W.), 9:30 p.m., $10.

    The Women Won’t Forget December 6th Vigil is also taking place as it has for the last 22 years at Philosopher’s Walk (between the ROM and the RCA off bloor st) with Speakers and Performers. The picture above is from our 2008 Vigil. All are welcome. The vigil goes from 6pm – 7pm and a reception will take place with free food and drinks at Gabby’s on bloor afterwards.
