Tears 4 Justice walk Northwestern Ontario
If you've been driving along highway 17 East of Thunder Bay over the last few days you might have noticed a caravan of white vans supporting a small group of walkers. The vans are covered in photographs of women, each photograph framed with bright strips of neon and flowered duct tape. The women pictured are all missing or have been murdered. This is a walk in their memory. It is called Tears4Justice. Although the number of walkers fluctuate as people join them, eight women set out from Nova Scotia on June 21st heading to Prince Rupert, BC. They were welcomed to Thunder Bay in a presentation at the Labour Centre this afternoon. The CBC's Heather McLeod went to that presentation. But first she stopped to look at the pictures on the van. There she met the first of walkers with whom she spoke today: Aggie.
