VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Activists in Vancouver are demanding federal leaders address the issue of violence against Indigenous women and girls, ahead of Monday’s election.
Diana Day is with the Pacific Association of First Nations Women, she says so far during the election campaign, federal leaders haven’t addressed the hundreds of women who are abused or killed across Canada.
“We are really hoping that whoever wins this election, they will make particular attention to these call for justice because it is so important that our women are being targeted and we need justice reform,” Day says.
“It’s very surpris[ing] it wasn’t more of an issue.”
