At least 18 women have either gone missing or been killed along the highway between Prince George and Prince Rupert, according to the RCMP, but Indigenous leaders argue that the true number is closer to 50.

Frustrating to say the least, that the facts in regard the official victims of the Highway of Tears is once again incorrect. This is ongoing to the point where many people do not realize that the victims are not all from Highway 16 and are not all First Nations. Many people that you speak with are ignorant to the fact that the 18 women on the official list did not all go missing, or were murdered, along the highway between Prince George and Prince Rupert (Highway 16). Some of the victims are from Highways 5 & 97. While there is only one victim from Highway 16 that is not First Nations (Nicole Hoar) there are a number of others from Highways 5 & 97 that are not First Nations.

While there are more that have gone missing in all of those areas, only 18 met the criteria to be included on the official list of Highways victims.

Thank you for pointing that out Debbie. It probably would help if people actually listened to what interviewers were asking ... I mean really listened ... before giving information. I wondered about the count jumping and thought there was new information.
