Rally focuses on issue of missing, murdered aboriginal women

  • Print

WINNIPEG -- A downtown rally to raise awareness for missing and murdered aboriginal women isn’t just about aboriginal people.

The speakers' list is weighted in favour of non-native leaders although it includes the three Grand Chiefs in the province.

Churchill MP Niki Ashton, Winnipeg city councilor Ross Eadie, Manitoba CUPE president Kelly Moist and Winnipeg Harvest director David Northcott are all on the agenda.

The event begins at 10 a.m. with a march from The Forks to the TD Centre on Portage and Main. The rally at 201 Portage Ave., runs 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The Assembly of Manitoba Chiefs is sponsoring the event to keep public attention trained on the issue. Manitoba’s grand chiefs are expected to repeat their call for an inquiry into the missing and murdered women in Canada.

The march will be led jointly by AMC and women leaders, including a chief and several elders.
