Group gets funding to fight 'honour' killings
by Catherine Griwkowsky
A local group is getting close to $200,000 to combat "honour" violence and killing.
The Indo-Canadian Women's Association will get $199,962 from the feds for a 24-month project to work with ethno-cultural groups and people to shed light on the issue.
Rona Ambrose, minister for the Status of Women, announced the project on Tuesday, saying it's about tackling cultural issues that have been around for hundreds of years.
