To mark the Annual Day of Justice for Missing and Murdered Aboriginal Women, the Green Party of Canada pledges renewed support for the Native Women’s Association of Canada’s call for a national inquiry.
Much more of a spotlight needs to be on the issue of murdered and missing Aboriginal women and girls in Canada. “We know Indigenous women are highly vulnerable because they are disproportionately impoverished. We need information about the scope of the problem, a plan to address it, and adequate political, financial and human resources to support this work,” said Elizabeth May, Leader of the Green Party of Canada and Member of Parliament for Saanich–Gulf Islands.
She added "Missing and Murdered Aboriginal women are our sisters and mothers, aunties and friends. They are not anonymous. They are loved and missed. The scandal of allowing their disappearances and deaths to go unsolved must end."
