Council Asked to Join Red Dress Event
Prince George, B.C.- The City of Prince George will be called upon to take part in a special event to mark the missing and murdered women along Highway 16.
A presentation to Mayor and Council this evening calls for the City to take part in an event set for October 2nd.
That event aims to have volunteers stand along Highway 16 carrying a red dress, a symbol of the ” absence of these women in the lives of their family, friends and community.”
That highway event will be followed by a gathering at the stage in Lheidli T’enneh Memorial Park, where it’s proposed there will be a candlelight vigil among red dresses hung on the stage and between trees.
The proponent is calling on Council to take part, and to have the City waive the stage rental fee as well as pick up the tab for the liability insurance for the event.
