Monday in Vancouver will be another day to remember the women: the ones whose lives didn't seem to matter when they first went missing from the city's downtown east side in the late 1990's and early 2000's.
Police eventually found some of their remains on Robert Pickton's pig farm.
Commissioner Wally Oppal will release his long-anticipated report into
the way the case was handled - or mishandled - on Monday.
At the same time, the families of three of the victims will gather
on Hastings Street. Three bronze plaques will be embedded in the
sidewalk, each one with a victim's name. One of the names will be
Brenda Wolfe. Her daughter Angel told her story on The Sunday Edition a
few weeks ago.
There will be more plaques to come, representing 62 women in all, as permanent reminders that their lives DID matter.
This is the Living Memorial Stones Project, conceived, organized and personally paid for by a man named Sean Kirkham.
