Women’s Memorial March Today at PG Courthouse

Saturday, February 13, 2016 @ 10:01 AM

Prince George, B.C. – The second annual Women’s Memorial March for missing and murdered aboriginal women is being held this afternoon in Prince George.

Organizer Ken Solonas says the event runs from 2 to 4 pm and begins at the Prince George courthouse.  “There’s going to be speakers, performers, singers, there will be a women’s march through downtown and the RCMP will be assisting with traffic control to make sure everyone is safe.”

“Once we make it back to the courthouse there will be an open mike for people who haven’t had a chance to speak, performers once again and it will be followed by a dinner at the courthouse.”

He says speakers will include Brenda Wilson from the Highway of Tears Initiative, Angelique Levesque from Angelique’s Native Arts, a UNBC NUGGS Aboriginal representative, a CNC Students Unions women’s rep, a spokesperson for the Moosehide Campaign and others.


Where’s crusty and shurely…..??

Bond/ Morris are tasting wines at Pat Bell winery..memorial march isn’t a good photo-op!

So folks what just would you have the politicians do, stay in their offices and never get involved in public activities. Maybe its about selective, in your eyes favourable politicians. If not seen people bitch, if seen people bitch.

Now my disagreement about this march is its being selective by race and gender.

    This march was organized by people who are concerned about the disproportionate rates of homicide and disappearance among first nations women but it wasn’t exclusive to First Nations women. For example, photos of non-aboriginal Highway of Tears victims were present.

    There is clearly a disproportionate number of First Nations men being murdered and going missing, as well, but if there were a march for that issue it would still be selective by race.

    How do you propose to address specific issues, without addressing them specifically?

    tliotg, I have serious concerns about you! Dude, you have issues!

    Most aggressive pot grower I’ve ever seen, not bright having your screen name linked to an open Facebook page ….. duhmmy

Anyone have any positive, encouraging, uplifting comments?

“My friends, love is better than anger, Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So, let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we will change the world”. Jack Layton

    I was at the march and was encouraged and uplifted seeing the Aboriginal Liaison Cst. Jason Gillis simultaneously march, drum and direct traffic, all with a smile.

BYOB well one can have idealistic dreams.

Completely different party after Jack Layton passed, sadly his vision and energy is all but gone.
