Missing Justice

by admin February 16, 2010

Around 150 people participated in a march Sunday in Montreal to draw attention to the plight of over 500 First Nations women who have been murdered or gone missing over the past four decades. The annual event began in 1991 in Vancouver, but other cities across Canada participate in the annual event. This year is the first time a march is being held in Montreal.
“Even most of the cases [of missing women] we know about are completely unresolved and uninvestigated,” said Maya Rolbin-Ghanie, an organizer of the march. “It’s so important to remember these women. But the reason for coming out is partly political as well. This has been going on for decades, and we want the government to take this issue more seriously.”
