Cherisse Houle's mother speaks out

More than 300 people attended the Women's Memorial March on Monday, February 14, to honour and remember the hundreds of women who have gone missing or been murdered in Canada.

The crowd, holding signs and banners, and wearing cardboard butterflies with pictures and names of victims, took to the streets to bring awareness about the tragic issue of missing and murdered women. Currently in Manitoba, there are more than 70 unsolved cases of missing women. Most of them are Aboriginal.

Barbara Houle, mother of slain teenager Cherisse Houle, spoke out about her daughter.

The 17-year-old mother of a young son was found face down in a creek in July, 2009. Her homicide is still unsolved.
