“We were very, very proud, and very honoured to have our sisters and allied with us,” said program manager Tracy Leblond.

The March began just after 9 a.m. Tuesday at the centre and included a flag raising and prayer at Seaway Centre Park, and speakers and a women’s song at Sarnia City Hall.

“There is a lot of pain and unanswered questions,” said Leblond. “When one of us hurts, we all hurt.”

The No More Stolen Sisters movement is a human rights response to discrimination and violence against Indigenous women in Canada.
