WINNIPEG — A Manitoba graphic novel is aiming to change the way the next generation sees missing and murdered indigenous women.
Author David Alexander Robertson depicts the story of 19-year-old Helen Betty Osborne who was abducted as she was walking home in the Pas in 1971 and killed.
The graphic novel, titled Betty, was showcased on Global’s Morning News Friday, November 13th.
