The Highway of Tears is one of Canada's most tragic and haunting mysteries. Specifically referring to Highway 16 in BC, but seemingly collecting victims from across Canada's west, observers have estimated more than 500 women, most of them Native and/or troubled youths, have been killed or kidnapped on the route between BC and Saskatchewan. [ame="http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26708"]500 native women who have disappeared or been murdered in the last 20 years - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community[/ame] This forum needs volunteers to get it up and running. We need to start populating this forum with threads dedicated to the missing persons, UID and victims of unsolved murders, to government/LE and community initiatives, and theories as to what is going on in this region of the country. Why are we losing so many women? And how can we help? I am very proud of this forum, and I think WS can provide an excellent resource for these cases. Hundreds of family and community members are longing for justice and closure. My heart goes out to the victims and those who love them. I hope we can help.
