More family members of women who have gone missing on the Highway of Tears have expressed disappointment surrounding revelations the government deleted emails pertaining to their cases.
Gladys Radek’s niece Tamara Chipman went missing while hitch-hiking near Prince Rupert back in 2005.
“She was somebody’s daughter, somebody’s sister, somebody’s loved one. She was a mother to a little boy who has now been raised without her.”
Radek says she is appalled, but not surprised at what the government has done.
“It’s racism, blatant racism.”
She says many in the community do not believe the government will do anything to help uncover what happened to the missing and murdered women.
