MMIWG2S awareness walk reaches Saskatoon
April 8, 2022 – In a show of support for the Saskatchewan-led cross-Canada awareness walk for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ (MMIWG2S) people, Saskatoon residents welcomed Métis citizen Lindsey Bishop and MMIWG2S advocate Krista Fox to the city.
Métis Nation–Saskatchewan (MN–S), the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations (FSIN), the City of Saskatoon and the Saskatoon Police Service asked the community to come together and honour their efforts.
Lindsey’s sister Megan Gallagher went missing in September 2020. Supported by the MN–S Family Information Liaison Outreach (FILO), the Gallagher family is searching for answers. MN–S continues to call for the Métis MMIWG2S experience to be addressed.
Lindsey and Krista embarked on the cross-country journey from Victoria, BC, in February and will end on the east coast in December.
