    VANCOUVER Taxi drivers in Prince George, B.C., are being pressured to submit a DNA sample to the RCMP in their investigation of the deaths or disappearances of at least 18 women over the last three decades.

    Every cab driver in the city has been told by the RCMP that providing a DNA sample would eliminate them as a suspect or person of interest in the investigation, the Toronto Star has learned.

    Last Thursday the Aboriginal Law Association of McGill hosted the panel discussion, Stolen Sisters, addressing issues of violence and discrimination that Aboriginal women continue to face within Canadian society.
    The discussion was a part of the event: “13 Days to Honour Aboriginal Women,” which aims to celebrate Aboriginal women, as well as raise awareness about missing and murdered Aboriginal women.
    Official statistics estimate that since the 1980s, approximately 520 Aboriginal women have been murdered or gone missing.

    VANCOUVER -" Vicki Hill was an infant in 1978 when her mother went missing along the Highway of Tears and was later found dead".



    Hill spoke at a forum in Prince Rupert, B.C. – the first of seven launched in northwestern B.C. – where community members were given a chance to tell Commissioner Wally Oppal about B.C.’s many missing and murdered women, and how investigations should be initiated and conducted"

    When filmmaker Matt Smiley first heard about the Highway of Tears, he knew it was a story that had to be told.

    Now he's in Prince George with a camera crew and will be touring the 700 kilometre stretch of Highway 16, between here and Prince Rupert, examining the route where at least 18 young women have been murdered or have gone missing.

    It all began when the name of Nicole Hoar - the treeplanter from Red Deer who was last seen June 21, 2002 at a gas station west of Prince George - came up in a conversation with Smiley and his sister and brother-in-law, who live in Prince George.

    Smiley, who grew up in Montreal and lives in Los Angeles, had never heard of the Highway of Tears until then.

    VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Canadian police have linked a dead U.S. convict to the killing of a teenage girl nearly 40 years ago, one of 18 young women who were killed or vanished along three highways in British Columbia over several decades. Oregon authorities are also investigating the man for possible links to four murders in the U.S. state.
