Over the past three years the Council of Canadians has repeatedly called for a national inquiry on murdered and missing Indigenous women.
That's because although Indigenous women make up 4.3 per cent of the Canadian population, they account for 16 per cent of murdered women and 11.3 per cent of missing women in Canada. Over the past 30 years, 1,026 Indigenous women have been murdered and 160 are missing. Sadly those numbers only continue to increase.
Write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper urging Prime Minister Trudeau to follow through on his commitment for an inquiry without delay.
