In 2014 MOVA co-produced a video series called Aftermath of Murder - Survivor Series with financial assistance from the Federal Department of Justice for National Victim of Crime Awareness Week. Below are stories of survivors in Manitoba.

Candace Derksen Murder

(Interview with Wilma Derksen)

Published on Apr 6, 2014


"It was such a normal day and then Candace just disappeared... it was horrible. Our world fell apart. It was just as if your heart had cracked open and you were expected to live after that. Unless we can turn it around by doing justice work and forgiveness work we end at a place with no hope" - Wilma Derksen

Chad Davis Murder

(Interview with Lori and Stuart Davis)

Published on Apr 6, 2014


"The public has an opinion that if you're in the drug trade you deserve what you get. But they don't realize this is a person and that person has loved ones out there. Chad was a great athlete with a great sense of humour. His expressions would tell a thousands words."

- Lori & Stuart Davis

Trevor Tanner Murder

(Interview with Marcheta Tanner)

Published on Mar 31, 2014


"My husband made Trevor a promise at his grave that he was going to get justice. But in the end nothing can ever be enough because no matter what happens Trevor still is not coming home" -- Marcheta Tanner

TJ Wiebe Murder 

(Interview with Floyd and Karen Wiebe) 

Published on Mar 30, 2014


"The judge said no murder is explainable and in all his years on the bench he'd never seen anything so absolutely over nothing... Our son made some bad choices but he didn't ask to be murdered. TJ was an accomplished human being and a fabulous person." - Floyd & Karen Wiebe

Timothy McLean Murder 
(Interview with Carol De Delley)

Published on Mar 31, 2014

"He had been on the bus already for over 20 hours. A passenger beside him with no forewarning attacked and killed him. My son's body was desecrated. If I can prevent one other family from having to go through what my family and I have experienced then it will be a well-fought fight and a worthy one" - Carol de Delley

Supporting Loss by Homicide

(Interview with Karen Wiebe)

Published on Apr 7, 2014


"When an individual is murdered it is unlike any other experience. Not only do you have to deal with the death of a loved one, you now have to deal with the police, the press and court processes. It's very complicated and painful and MOVA is here to help." - Karen Wiebe
