More than 150 vigils took place across Canada Thursday night to honor the lives of missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls. The Native Women's Association of Canada has documented nearly 600 cases of missing and murdered aboriginal women, the majority of which were reported within the past thirty years. Some elected officials and families of the victims say the government is not doing enough to address the issue. FSRN’s Tanya Castle reports from Ottawa.
