Justice is coming – Prince George Citizen

‘Justice is coming’

Written by FRANK PEEBLES
Citizen staff
Monday, 15 September 2008

March to culminate in protest on Parliament Hill The Walk 4 Justice ends today, and also begins. According to organizer Gladys Radek the long march from Vancouver to Ottawa (with a connector walk from Prince Rupert through Prince George that joined them near Kamloops) was merely the warning shot fired across government’s bow. Their mission is to eradicate violence against women and seek justice for those missing and murdered like the victims of the Highway of Tears, one of whom is Radek’s niece Tamara Chipman.

B.C. residents bring unsolved-murder campaign to Ottawa – CBC.ca

After walking thousands of kilometres, a group of B.C. residents arrived on Parliament Hill Monday to draw attention to the unsolved cases of 3,000 missing and murdered women, mostly aboriginal.

The Walk4Justice journey was personal for organizer Gladys Radek, whose niece Tamara Chipman went missing along the “highway of tears” — an 800-kilometre stretch of Highway 16 between Prince George and Prince Rupert where 18 women have disappeared since the 1970s.

“I kind of knew how big Canada was, but it really opened my eyes even more about the plight of the missing and murdered women right across the nation,” said Rudek. “I think it’s Canada’s dirtiest secret.”
