    I agree with Lisa Its sickening to do a play about our murdered women.
    We’ve been through enough. Not only that were trying to move on. My sister was one of the missing. It’s been a living night mare. I’d feel sick playing Robert Pickton. He’s a puke….makes me sick. He’s soo evil.

    I am a survivor of domestic violence. I went on to help found and run a shelter for victims and when the film “The Burning Bed” was made I chose not to see it. However one night I came home and my family new husband was watching it. I could not tear myself away – and when it was over I cried for 2hours. I am SO GLAD I saw it because I realized it raised the consciousness of those who did not understand the horror of being a victim. Yes it is hard to watch, especially for the victim’s family, but we MUST NOT let the actions of a violent person be glossed over or covered up. Women deserve to have their story presented!!!#
