Today, as we remember and honour the lives of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two-Spirit people, we’re adding our support for the vital need to take actionable steps to bridge the digital divide and help ensure safety for the Indigenous communities across Canada – including BC’s Highway 16.  

We acknowledge the number of Indigenous women that have gone missing or have been found murdered along the Highway of Tears, and to do our part, we’re building stronger connectivity across this stretch of highway so that women like Ramona Lisa Wilson will now have a line to safety.

Ramona’s sister, Brenda, tells us more about what this significant step towards reconciliation means to her community as well as the murdered and missing Indigenous women, girls and Two-Spirit people.
