We join in spirit today to honour and remember all the missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls and members of the 2SLGBTQQIA community. The red dress is a powerful symbol that represents a life once lived, then lost, and the trauma and the tragedy it caused to a family and an entire community. It is also a reminder to continue supporting the findings of the National Inquiry and the calls for justice.
We grieve and stand united with the Indigenous community.
