Before I start, Gladys and I want to thank you all for your continued support and we also want to make you aware about how important this walk is especially this year. Because if you have not heard, there have been numerous agencies that have had their funding completely cut - The Highway of Tears being one of the biggest. This says one thing to me, loud and clear, that the government is sending us a message that they don't care about our murdered and missing women. In 2 recent sessions, they would not commit to a public inquiry, even though it was demanded by several members of parliament and then announced the fundings that were being cut. Our women's organizations nationally are in grave danger at this point, so this year's walk will not only be about creating awareness for the murdered and missing women, it will also focus on the importance of letting the government know WE ARE NOT GOING TO GO AWAY!
The walkers will attend the Kamloops Pow Wow June 21st then leave Kamloops, BC June 22 and head to Winnipeg. They will be making stops in the following locations ... Chase, Salmon Arm, Sicamous, Enderby, Armstrong, Vernon, Kelowna, Peachland, Summerland, Penticton, Oliver, Osoyoos, Revelstoke, Golden, Lake Louise, Banff, Canmore, Calgary, Red Deer, Edmonton, Llyodminister, Battleford, Saskatoon and others.
If you can pull together a team of like minded individuals to organize accomodations, hearty meals, showers etc. in your area, please contact Laurie @ admin@walk4http://www.facebook.com/l/94746;justice.com If you would like to host a fund raiser in your area too, that would be great. And if you would like the walkers to do a presentation while they are in your area, please let us know asap and we ask that you provide us with media contacts so we can get as much coverage as possible.
If you would like to walk this year: you must meet the following criteria: be completely alcohol and substance free (this is a spirtual walk and the use of substances goes against our policy), sign a release form, if you have any health issues, you MUST make us aware of them and have a VALID drivers licence. We will be setting up a paypal account this week and are asking that you donate to this important cause.
Thank you again for your support
