On Thursday, February 22nd, an 11 person jury found Raymond Cormier NOT GUILTY in the death of 15 year old Tina Fontaine after a three week trial.
The justice system continues to fail Indigenous women and girls, leaving their families without healing.
We will begin with a prayer and a few speakers, followed by a round dance, and end with a warm up snacks and warm beverages at Knox Metropolitan United Church. Please join us in song and prayer and round dance in honour of Tina's life, and for all #MMIWG2S.
"What the Canadian judicial system cannot take from Tina Fontaine. She is a hummingbird in motion, her wings emerald green. She is floating, our baby sister, from ancestor to ancestor. She is drinking in stories. She is drinking in laughter. She is feasting with the Old Ones. She is feasting with her father, and she is well loved. She is well loved, our baby." - Gregory A Scofield
