Some of the walkers complete their journey from Norway House

Multi-month walk to raise awareness for the missing and murdered wraps up in Prince Rupert

A group of six walkers have completed their journey from Norway House, Manitoba to Prince Rupert.

A group of six walkers have completed their journey from Norway House, Manitoba to Prince Rupert to raise awareness for missing and murdered men and women.

The Walk for All Missing and Murdered arrived in Prince Rupert shortly after 3 p.m. and received a warm welcome at the Butze Rapids turnoff before being joined by several others for the final walk into Prince Rupert.

Brenda Osborne organized the walk and started from Norway House in late July. Osborne said that walking for the missing and murdered is close to her and her family, stating that they lost a beloved cousin.

“Still today I still wait for her to come home: she used to babysit me,” Osborne said. ” I also lost an aunt and uncle and another cousin, and closer still is my daughter who went missing in 2008.”
