Premiers call for public inquiry into violence against aboriginal women


 

NIAGARA-ON-THE-LAKE, Ont. – Provincial and territorial leaders meeting in Ontario are joining calls for a national public inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls.

Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne says there was support for the inquiry during the premiers’ meeting with the Council of Aboriginal Peoples.

She says it’s an issue that’s touched every province and territory.

First Nations’ calls for a public inquiry on violence against aboriginal women have garnered support across the country in recent years.

Wynne made the announcement today in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ont., where 11 provincial and territorial leaders are meeting for their semi-annual summit.

Premiers call for public inquiry into violence against aboriginal women

  1. We don’t need any more hearings, inquiries, studies or reports We been doing them for over a century.

    What we need is action.

  2. As long as the social problems maintained on reserves by the chiefs and councils are ignored, nothing of value would emerge.

  3. Oh, give over. We have a broken economy. Get rid of these fools that think apologizing, holding hearings and inquiries and throwing more money at the grievance industry is somehow important.
