Libby speaking out for missing women

On a day dedicated to love, they remembered loved ones lost: The murdered and the missing. Yet theirs is not a mourning felt just once a year. It's chronic, continual and, for most, without any relief, whether or not the fate of their sisters and daughters, mothers and friends has been determined. The 19th annual Women's Memorial March had nothing to do with the Olympics; it is only coincidence that the annual Valentine's Day observance fell during the Winter Games here, drawing international media attention and a larger crowd than normal, hundreds falling into step behind the families following a noon remembrance service inside the Carnegie Community Centre in Vancouver's notorious Downtown Eastside.
