    The RCMP have charged a 29-year-old man with the murder of Saskatchewan teenager Amber Redman.

    Albert Patrick Bellegarde of the Little Black Bear First Nation has been charged with the first-degree murder of Redman, 19, who disappeared in 2005, the RCMP said Tuesday afternoon.

    Bellegarde appeared before a justice of the peace Tuesday afternoon in Regina. He was remanded in custody and is scheduled to appear in Regina provincial court Wednesday morning.

    A second man, 31, who's also from the Little Black Bear reserve, is in custody following his arrest Monday evening in Meadow Lake.

    ~snip~

    Bellegarde was charged a day after police announced they had found human remains believed to be those of Redman on the Little Black Bear reserve about 125 kilometres northeast of Regina.

    Hundreds March For Their 'Stolen Sisters'

    Nina Courtepatte, Katie Cardinal, Aielah Saric-Auger, Rachel Quinney, Irene LeGrande.

    It is a roll call of just a few of the more than 500 aboriginal women who have been murdered or gone missing in Western Canada in recent decades.

    The dead and the missing were remembered Saturday by more than 200 people who joined the second annual Stolen Sisters Awareness Walk, which wound its way through the neighbourhoods of Spruce Avenue and Alberta Avenue.

    The walk aims to raise awareness of -- and bring an end to -- the disproportionate amount of violence committed against indigenous women, who make up less than three per cent of the Canadian population.

    "We talk about the 500 murdered and missing aboriginal women, but we know it is far more than that," Joanne Daniels, who is with the Institute of the Advancement of Aboriginal Women, told walk participants gathered at the Canadian Native Friendship Centre.

    "Those are only the ones that have been reported," she said.

    Vigils honour hundreds of missing aboriginal women

    Oct 04, 2009 07:26 PM

    THE CANADIAN PRESS

    Dozens of vigils were held across the country Sunday to remember more than 500 aboriginal women who have vanished in the last three decades and to draw attention to what organizers called a national tragedy.

    ***

    "We call for a national plan of action that recognizes the violence faced by aboriginal women because they are aboriginal," organizer Alana Lee said as sweetgrass smoke hung heavy in the air.

    "Violence against aboriginal women is too big a problem to ignore."

    ***

    "We all have a responsibility that if we see something that we don't approve of, speak up, say something because you never know, that might be the call that actually saves someone's life," she said through tears.

    ***

    "It's because of the systemic structures of poverty, colonization and racism."

    The Canadian government is unwilling to protect First Nations women from the violence, Reynolds said.

    Sisters lead hunt for native justice

    They are the keepers of the flame for more than 500 missing and murdered aboriginal women in Canada. And their crusade has become--for the moment, anyway--the whole country's crusade.

    From a cramped, west-end Ottawa office decorated with dream catchers and infused with hope, the place where a great divide is bridged between hundreds of grieving communities across Canada and the powers that be on Parliament Hill, a small team of researchers and outreach workers is trying hard not to say: "We told you so."

    But the people behind Sisters in Spirit, a five-year, federally funded initiative launched in 2005 by the Native Women's Association of Canada, have been saying all along what most Canadians are just now waking up to after a recent media blitz about murdered and missing women in Western Canada.

    They've been telling Canadians that the dead and disappeared are almost everywhere across the country; that there is no single serial killer at work, except apathy; that the tragedy runs deep into the history of aboriginal dispossession and discrimination; that jurisdictional tangles and cultural blind spots help explain why so many killings and so many vanished women have been relegated to the cold-case file.

    March to remember missing, murdered women

    Some of the hundreds who marched through Vancouver's Downtown Eastside on Valentine's Day to remember the city's missing and murdered women say they're still concerned a forthcoming public inquiry is solely focused on the high-profile case of serial killer Robert Pickton.

    Carrying baskets of red and yellow roses, giant photo collages of lost loved ones and hand-printed signs warning about the "danger" of certain men, the large crowd walked through drenching rain after a memorial service in a Downtown Eastside community centre.

    It was the 20th year for the annual march, which started as residents of the blighted neighbourhood tried desperately to bring attention to women -- many aboriginal sex workers -- who were disappearing in growing numbers.

    Just before Monday's grim ceremony, advocates spoke out about what they say are inadequacies with the provincial inquiry, which is expected to get under way later this year. Among their concerns were a perceived lack of consultation with the victims' families and aboriginal groups, as well as the appointment of just a single commissioner to oversee the hearings.

    "We're talking about, frankly, the most pressing social issue of our time," Angela MacDougall, one of several march organizers, told a news conference.

    "We should all be extremely concerned by this lack of attention by the provincial government."

    Another big mistake is failing to include women and girls who have vanished for years along the so-called Highway of Tears in northern British Columbia, she said.

    Is there a list of these missing women anywhere, with descriptions and other information? The Unidentified section lists a number of women who are thought to be of native ancestry who might be connected.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)
