The Ending Violence Association of BC wants to express our deepest sympathy to the families and friends of women who have been murdered across the province in recent months, including Chassidy Charlie who was murdered last week near Burns Lake. We also want to express our sympathy to the communities, including Chassidy’s community of the Cheslatta Carrier Nation. We know how deeply impacted whole communities are by these horrific crimes. As you know, EVA BC is committed to honouring the direction given to us by our Aboriginal allies and speaking out about the extremely high levels of violence that Aboriginal women face, so we have been speaking to media in response to this most recent tragic loss.
EVA BC thanks 94x and the Wolf News in Prince George for allowing us to post their February 1, 2011 radio news report that includes an interview with EVA BC Executive Director Tracy Porteous. Click here to listen to the newscast.
