Mercedes Admiraal Gassman observes a minute of silence during a candlelight vigil for United Against Violence Against Women on Tuesday, Dec. 6. The event was sponsored by the SAFE Society, Okanagan College Students’ Union and Okanagan College Aboriginal Services. While the event originated out of the horrific mass murder of women at Montreal’s Ecole Polytechnique, this year’s ceremony also recognized the missing and murdered women who have disappeared along B.C.’s Highway of Tears.
