The chimes atop St. John’s Cathedral in Saskatoon will ring out this week in honour of Canada’s missing and murdered aboriginal women.

As part of national initiative by the Anglican Church of Canada, the bells in Saskatoon will ring 1,017 times — one chime for each aboriginal women and girls murdered between 1980 and 2012, according to a press release by the church.

The chimes will also ring for 105 times for the women and girls “classified as missing in suspicious circumstances.”

The chimes will ring for five sessions over a span of 22 days, starting May 31, the day Canada’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission’s closing events commence.
