A call for action on the issue of missing and murdered aboriginal women, from a Loretta Saunders relative
She made it her mission to research and draw attention to the issue of missing and murdered aboriginal women. Now, she's the catalyst for change under devastating circumstances. Loretta Saunders went missing last month in Halifax. Two weeks later, the St. Mary's University student's body was found along the Trans-Canada Highway west of Moncton.
Holly Jarret is Loretta Saunders' cousin. She was at a vigil on Parliament Hill to call for a national public inquiry into the crimes against aboriginal women, and she joined us with her thoughts.
