Church bells ring 1,181 times for Canada's missing and murdered aboriginal women
As the Truth and Reconciliation Commission comes to an end, the Anglican Church has asked parishes across the country to toll their bells in remembrance -- culminating in one for each of the 1,181 indigenous women who have died or disappeared.
The Church asked parishes across the nation to toll the bells in a gesture of solidarity with Aboriginal Peoples following the landmark report by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. Today, we aired the solemn remembrance from churches in St. John's, Charlottetown, Montreal, Ottawa, Calgary, Whitehorse and Vancouver. The voices you'll hear are Yukon bishop Larry Robertson and Matthew Quick, who rang the bells at St. James in Vancouver.
