Murder victims were failed

Hundreds march in 21st Annual Women's Memorial March

This front-page story in The B.C. Catholic newspaper of Feb. 27 shows where sympathies lie in today's world.
Archbishop J. Michael Miller, CSB, of Vancouver and Barbara Dowding, vice-chancellor of the Archdiocese of Vancouver, join in the memorial march.
St. Valentine's Day was filled with bittersweet feelings of love and loss in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside as hundreds of people gathered for the 21st Annual Women's Memorial March. By 1 p.m. the crowd was growing larger every minute, with many holding up photos with the names of women who had gone missing or whose DNA had been discovered on Robert Pickton's pig farm.

Pickton is serving time in jail for the murder of six women and has been charged in the disappearance of 20 others. He has been reported as claiming to have murdered 49.
