KAMLOOPS — A march was held yesterday on the North Shore, in honour of missing and murdered aboriginal women across Canada.

Close to one hundred people took part in the march, which started and finished at Spirit Square, just off Tranquille Road. Organizers of the event hoped the march would help keep the conversation going about the missing and murdered indigenous women in Canada.

In 2014, there were more than 1800 cases of missing, or murdered indigenous women and girls across the country, and advocates say that number is growing. There were similar marches held in various Canadian cities over the weekend.
