NATIONAL DAY OF VIGILS
OCTOBER 4TH IS A DAY TO
REMEMBER AND HONOUR
THE LIVES OF
MURDERED AND MISSING
ABORIGINAL WOMEN AND GIRLS IN CANADA
The National Day of Vigils began in 2006 when 11 vigils were held across the country, growing to 72 in 2009.
This is an incredible increase in awareness and action that must continue and grow further.
The vigil began at Main and Hastings Street at 5 pm and gathered at Crab Park for the ceremony.
