The 19th Annual Missing Women's Memorial March took place February 14th in Vancouver's Downtown East side. Most of the women who have passed were either First Nations, mis-using substances or working the streets of this community at the time of their disappearance. Numbers were estimated at around five thousand for the march, the largest turnout in its 19 year history.
