Missing and murdered indigenous women remembered in annual march

 


More than 100 Montrealers gathered in Cabot Square to mark the 10th annual memorial march and vigil for Canada's missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls.

The national Sisters In Spirit march and vigils was founded in 2005 by Bridget Tolley, an Algonquin from the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg in Quebec, about 135 kilometres north of Ottawa. Her mother was hit and killed by an RCMP cruiser in 2001.
