That Lonely Section of Hell



Event is over.


Literary/Books, Activism

"That Lonely Section of Hell" is former police detective Lori Shenher’s searing personal account of sexism, racism, and mishandling in Vancouver’s Missing and Murdered Women Investigation, which became the largest serial killer investigation in Canadian history.

In this evening panel, Shenher, Senator Larry Campbell, Vancouver Observer editor-in-chief Sandy Garossino, and other community stakeholders will discuss the deeper causes of this tragedy and the myriad ways the system broke down. Most importantly, they will shine a light on how far we’ve come since we failed to stop a serial killer, and what we still need to do to protect vulnerable people in our communities.
