I would like to thank the membership of CUPE Local 3550 for sending Jody Ryan, a daughter of a murdered and missing aboriginal woman, to Ottawa for the Sister’s in Spirit Vigil and Rally. The experience was overwhelming and very powerful as I watched and listened to Jody demand justice and a public inquiry from the federal government. Jody spoke about her mom and the hardships her family and her community endure on a daily basis not knowing the location of their mothers, sisters, daughters, aunties and/or grandmothers.
Jody also spoke of the importance of staying safe so this type of tragedy does not happen in your family.
Please enjoy the pictures of your hard work in action.
