Seven demonstrators from across Canada stopped in Saskatoon Wednesday as part of their cross-country walk. The group is walking from Winnipeg to Prince Rupert, B.C. as part of an effort to raise awareness of murdered and missing aboriginal women.

The demonstrators were joined in Saskatoon by Saskatchewan Senator Lillian Dyck, who called on the federal government to recognize the plight of Canada’s aboriginal women.

“The federal government is doing nothing, they could care less. This should be an election issue. This has to stop, we have to stop harming our aboriginal women,” Dyck said.

“It seems like there’s no help for us families, we’re the ones suffering,” said Brenda Osborne, one of the demonstrators.

“And this is why it’s so important to us to keep that awareness going all across Canada so people don’t give up searching for their loved ones.”

The 3,400 km journey has been made possible by volunteers and donations. Most nights they are camping, with some stops in hotels.
