Walk for Justice participants heading into the homestretch of their journey

They began their journey at the site of one of Canada's most infamous serial killings and now the men and women on the Walk for Justice are almost at their destination.

The group of 17 have arrived in Burns Lake, ready to tackle the final ten days of travel before they reach Prince Rupert on the 22nd of June.

The campaign to raise awareness of the missing women of Highway 16 began in Vancouver on May 29th and since then have travelled to many communities through the Interior and now on the road to the coast.

Along the way they began the process of calling for a public inquiry in the cases of the many missing women in Northern BC, many of which have disappeared while hitch hiking along Highway 16.

The journey takes them westbound again starting tomorrow, with stops planned in Houston June 12th and Smithers June 13th. The group arrives in Moricetown June 14th, Hazelton on June 16th, Kitwanga June 17th and Terrace on June 18th.

They leave Terrace and arrive in Prince Rupert on June 22nd.
