Candlelight vigil for Hilary Bonnell

From (link):

In the wake of the tragic finding of Hilary Bonnell there will be a candlelight vigil November 21st at 5:30 p.m. at the Exhibition Grounds in downtown Fredericton.

The procession will head down Smythe Street, up King Street, and make it's way to City Hall where there will be speakers. There will be a representative from the Muriel McQueen Ferguson Foundation, the [Fredericton Sexual Assault] Crisis Center, and Gignoo House.

Remember to bring a candle, your prayers, and your support.

The NB Rebelles - Fredericton, in solidarity with the aforementioned groups, hope to see you at the vigil tomorrow.

In the last issue of The Brief there was an article about the disappearance of Hilary Bonnell, discussing "what role racism, colonialism, and misogyny have played in the low level of the media coverage and slow pace of the police investigation," thus linking this murder to the over 500 Aboriginal women who have gone missing or been murdered in Canada.
