On Monday, September 15, Elders, youth, women, men and professionals gathered in Ottawa to present the cases of all Aboriginal women missing across Canada to Prime Minister Stephen Harper and call for a full public inquiry into their disappearances.
Both organizers and volunteers left on foot from Vancouver on June 21 and arrived in Ottawa on September 15. Respected Elders and several of the victims’ family members spoke on behalf of the people, explaining the importance for more attention to be given to these missing women’s cases.
New cases have occurred as Walk 4 Justice travelled the country. All participants hope to open the government’s eyes on the ever-growing issues concerning the disappearances and deaths of Aboriginal women.
