Vigil for murdered and missing aboriginal women held in Regina

REGINA - A 24-hour vigil being held in Regina aims to remind people about the all-too-high number of missing and murdered aboriginal women in the city and the country.

The candlelight vigil is being held on the sidewalk of the Albert Memorial Bridge on Albert Street until 8 p.m. Friday.

Participant Angela Gray, whose niece is believed to have been murdered, says they want justice for these women.

She says it's important to keep them in the public eye so no one forgets about them.

A report by the RCMP released in May 2014 revealed there have been 1,181 cases of missing and murdered aboriginal women across Canada since 1980.

It also revealed that Saskatchewan has the highest rate of victimization of aboriginal women of all of the provinces.
