Two aboriginal women are marching in Orillia this Friday to bring awareness to the “genocide” taking place in Canada against native women.
Gladys Radek, who led a 7,401-kilometre walk across Canada last year to bring awareness to and honour the murdered and missing women through her Tears4Justice group, is moving to Orillia.
