Call in to speak with the host
Gladys Radek is a proud grandmother of 5. She is originally from the Gitxsan Wet su wit en’ territory in northern British Columbia and resides in Gatineau, Quebec. As an activist for Human Rights she launched a precedent setting human rights case against a major mall in Vancouver and its security in 2001. International Village or Tinseltown Mall’s Securi-guard company were systemically removing the vulnerable, poor, disabled and First Nations people out of this mall over a period of time. She succeeded in changing the policy for security guards throughout the province to implement a human rights module in the training packages before they become security guards, she won her precedent setting case in July 2005.
At this time, Gladys is organizing one final National Walk called Tears4Justice. This walk is a 7,501 kilometer journey from Cape Breton Island to Prince Rupert, BC to unite families across the nation and introducing them to the the family members along the Highway of Tears. This walk is inspired by the family members who wanted to meet and support the family members along the Highway of Tears. This year’s message will be the need for a National Action Plan to prevent all forms of Violence against all Women and Children by way of a National Missing and Murdered Women Symposium. We want the family’s voices to be heard loud and clear. Families first…..
We want Justice, Closure, and Equality and in order to get this we need ACCOUNTABILITY from all levels of authority and governance. What do we want? JUSTICE! When do we want it? NOW!
It's good to talk.
