Walk to highlight senior abuse

A Cloverdale woman is organizing an awareness walk on Fathers' Day to highlight awareness of senior abuse.

Rita McDonnell says the June 19 walk starts at 1:30 p.m. at Stanley Park's Lumberman's Arch. Participants will walk a 3.5 km route.

Anyone who has ever lost a loved one due to inadequate care is encouraged to attend.

She hopes the walk will honour the victims – and highlight the lack of an adequate law protecting seniors, children and people with disabilities from wrongful death.

The Walk for Awareness towards Injustice for Senior Abuse is supported by CUPE local 728, the Steelworkers' Union, B.C/ Trial Lawyers, and the Wrongful Death Law Reform Group.
