HUMAN RIGHTS WATCH puts international spotlight on BC's "HIGHWAY OF TEARS"


A human rights group that's usually probing abuse, torture, and extra-judicial killings in places like Syria and Afghanistan is now in northern BC. Human Rights Watch is researching 160 unsolved cases of missing and murdered women in northern BC. Researchers spent more than a month interviewing people between Prince Rupert and Prince George. Daybreak's Betsy Trumpener catches up with HRW's women's rights researcher Meghan Rhoad.

Rhoad is hoping those who haven't been able to talk to her can get in touch. Her email is rhoadm@hrw.org
