Over 40 years ago an indigeous woman whilst walking down Third Street in The Pas, Manitoba e was abducted, brutally beaten, sexually assaulted and killed. Four young local white men were eventually implicated in her death: It was not until December 1987, sixteen years after her death, that any of them were convicted of the crime. The most significant factors prolonging the case were racism, sexism and indifference, looks like little has changed in Canada.

When I think back, there was the Robert Picton investigation and trial in Metro Vancouver, and all the missteps there. Then I think of the Highway of Tears, Hwy 16 between Prince George and Prince Rupert,BC where the bodies of 20 murdered women, mostly First Nations women, have been dumped. Claims of racism, sexism etc.
