The tragic death of 2-year old Hailey Dunbar-Blanchette in Alberta has touched people from all over Canada.
This Sunday Quesnel resident will have a chance to say goodbye and show support for the family, including her great-grandmother, who lives in Quesnel.
George Henderson reports:
Brenda Dunbar, understandably fighting back tears, says she has organized a candlelight memorial and balloon release for Lebourdais Park.
Dunbar says it will take place between 2:30 and 3:30.
“Hailey went missing on they say around 3:30, so I’m going to have the balloons released at 3:30 and I’m asking anybody that would like to join us in this memorial to show up in Lebourdais park with a candle and either a pink or white balloon.”
Dunbar says the community has been very supportive and even strangers want to give her a hug.
Hailey was the subject of an Amber Alert across several provinces after her father Terry was found dead in his home last Monday.
The toddler’s remains were then found the following day.
A suspect has now been charged with two counts of first-degree murder.
