Delilah Terriak, younger sister of the late Loretta Saunders, is attempting to organize a nation-wide vigil to honour her sister and other women who have fallen victim to violence.
“While we found my sister, she and I know of too many stories of women who will not be laid to rest,” wrote Terriak on facebook. “This needs to change now. I plan on holding a country wide vigil and would love your help. This is for all women, not just you, me or Loretta.”
26-year-old Loretta Saunders of Happy Valley-Goose Bay went missing on Feb.13. After more than a week of searching for the pregnant Saint Mary’s University student, Saunders body was found off of a highway in New Brunswick, on Feb. 26. The police have ruled her death a homicide and Saunders former roommates, Blake Leggette and Victoria Hennebury have been charged with first degree murder.
Less than an hour after Terriak's request for help on social media, people from cities like St. John’s, Halifax, Oshawa, Ottawa, and Fort McMurray, agreed to organize a vigil in their community’s.
Terriak said she will be waiting a day or so before choosing a date for the big vigil.
