    I will look for more/better links for you.

    I would actually like to see a subforum for the Highway of Tears.
    Thank you!

    Yes, a forum would be a good idea. It's a large and complex investigation and deserves much more attention than it gets. Those poor women...
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    The reason I suggest it is that there does seem to be a need for resources on the missing victims, and I think WS would be a great place for it.

    People should care more about this. It is a horrible thing.

    While we explore this, I want to express some thoughts. There is a fine line between acknowleging the lifestyle of the missing/murdered women and blaming them for being victims. I doubt anyone wakes up one day and says, "hey I think I will become the possible victim of a serial predator by behaving in xyz fashion."

    People who are marginalized need more attention than most in a case like this, imo. A transient lifestyle makes you hard to look for-some where there is a family member sadly wondering where their loved one is. Being a native doesnt appear to me to be the sole reason to consider someone marginalized, either...so I think we have to be very sensitive while we explore the relationships between these cases.

    OTTAWA — Some street prostitutes in Ottawa’s east end say they are unsettled after learning that a john tried to kill one of their colleagues, who was choked unconscious and then dragged to her attacker’s car.

    Working in the Ottawa east end’s sex trade has been particularly tough the past few years.

    Jennifer Stewart, 36, was found dead in a Vanier parking lot in August 2010.

    Kelly Morrisseau, 27, and pregnant, was found naked and bleeding in a parking lot near Gatineau Park in 2006.


    She died in hospital and an autopsy showed she had been stabbed at least a dozen times while trying to fight off her attacker.

    The Vanier street prostitutes, both aboriginal, were knifed to death.


    Jennifer Stewart worked the same Vanier streets as Morrisseau. Also a mother, she turned tricks to feed her crack habit. She had stab wounds to her head, legs and wrists and was found dead a short walk from her apartment.

    Around the time Stewart was killed, streetwalkers of Vanier, as they call themselves, said they had been having a lot of trouble with two bad johns.

    One was said to flash a badge of some sort, say he was a police officer and demand free sexual favours, threatening arrest if the prostitute refused. Another john was said to be quick to wave a knife to force them to give him sex for free

    There are 41 unsolved murders on the Ottawa Police books, including several prostitute killings. The latest involved a woman named Leeanne Lawson, who was found dead in a parking lot near King Edward Avenue in September. [2011]

    These incidences are certainly NOT taught to any real degree in American schools. I never knew anything about Wounded Knee other than the name until I read Brown's book back in high school on my own. The first time i heard about the Trail of Tears was as a boy when I got map from my mother than showed it plotted out. It was years before I read in depth about it from the books of John Upton Terrell and cannot recall it being covered in school except perhaps very lightly. Incidents as the Sand Creek Massacre were never mentioned at all and i doubt that they still are. The incident was so horrific, so unbelievable, that I doubt a single white American wants his or her child to be taught about the kind of things their ancestors did to "civilize" this country. Or that this kind of thing went on in Vietnam (My Lai) and Iraq.

    At the same time, when I read the title of this folder from the main page, even before I opened it, I knew if was going to be about native women and not white women. It had to be. If that many white women were disappearing in Canada, the whole world would have heard about it. It's inconceivable that many native women could die or disappear but nobody really cares. If they were white, the cops would have caught the guy long ago. Don't bother to argue that with me because you won't change my mind.

    Try to find "Trail of Tears" in your kid's history books!
    My ancestors walked that trail.

    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    We are the watchers. We are witnesses. We see what has gone before. We see what happens now, at this dangerous moment in human history. We see what's going to happen - what will surely happen - unless we come together: we - the Peoples of all Nations - to restore peace and harmony and balance to the Earth, our Mother.

    Wow - I haven't been following this case much but they suspect the recently discovered American killer to be a killer of up to 7 women in Oregon.
