It is a memorial event that no one wants to repeat.
A cairn near the main entrance of the Division Street police building will be dedicated today with a plaque attached that’s engraved with the names of six Kingston women who have been murdered by partners since 1997.
“That’s the tragic and unfortunate part, there are spots for additional names,” said Const. Lisa Damczyk, the department’s domestic violence coordinator.
“We hope we never have to add any names to it,” said Lisa Fox, a counsellor at Interval House, Kingston’s shelter for women.
It is likely that more Kingston women will die, statistics show.
