British Columbia. Missing Women Commission of Inquiry.
Oppal, Wallace T.
"Most of us will never have to worry about where we will get our next meal, what we will do to get the money we need to live or where we will sleep. We don’t understand what it feels like to be consumed by fears about our physical safety and yet afraid to contact the police. On your own, easily forsaken.

Forsaken. That is the story of the missing and murdered women"
