A National Day of Action took place today for missing and murdered indigenous women in the downtown east side (DTES) and across Canada.

The march began at Victory Square and wound through the DTES, ending with a final ceremony at Openheimer Park.

Several stops along the way honoured murdered women such as Verna Simard, and also shamed entities like First United for not being accountable to those women who have been assaulted there.
