The Prince Albert Grand Council Women’s Council is holding its 14th annual Honouring our Sisters and Brothers Memorial Walk this morning.

The walk raises awareness about the men and women who have gone missing or have died due to violence.

“We started 14 years ago when Amnesty International released a report about all the missing and murdered women in Saskatchewan. We held a meeting and thought we have to do something to bring awareness to our community of Prince Albert,” said walk spokesperson Shirley Henderson.

“We held that walk for about five years and then people came to us saying that we are forgetting about the men too. So we changed the walk into Honouring our Sisters and Brothers Memorial Walk.”

Henderson says she believes the walk has been very successful over the years, suggesting approximately 200-300 people attend the event. She says a bus from Wollaston will be attending the walk.

“I think that it signifies that we haven’t forgotten about the missing. Missing brothers and missing sisters — we’re still remembering them. Years down the road, we want to keep the momentum going,” said Henderson.

The opening ceremony will be taking place at Prince Albert city hall at 10 a.m.
