Candles of remembrance
Renee and Erika Arnouse take part in the annual candlelight vigil, United Against Violence Against Women, held Thursday evening at the Salmon Arm campus of Okanagan College. 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 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.
