PAGC Holds Memorial Walk

City Hall in Prince Albert was filled with signs and banners today, displaying the names and faces of Aboriginal people who have gone missing and murdered over the years.


A moment of silence was held for the most recent tragedy in the city, the violent death of a 16-year-old girl.


Organizers say more has to be done to prevent any more sons or daughters from being lost.


Gwenda Yuzicappi made the trip up from the Standing Buffalo First Nation to attend today’s event.


She is the mother of Amber Redman, a 19-year-old woman who was found murdered, four years after she went missing.


Yuzicappi says she doesn’t want her daughter to be forgotten, and she is encouraged by the high number of people who turned out for today’s rally, although she grieves that so many families have been affected by these tragedies.


People attending today’s event marched up to the Prince Albert Grand Council office, where a lunch was served.
