Churchill MP Niki Ashton is outraged over the fact the federal government has refused to call a national inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women. She says everyone except the federal government wants this inquiry. She explains what an inquiry would do is get into the reasons behind why so many aboriginal women have gone missing or have been murdered. She adds a few months ago Canada’s Premiers said we need an inquiry, we know international human rights organizations like Amnesty and Human Rights Watch have been asking for an inquiry and more importantly the families of missing and murdered indigenous women have been asking for an inquiry and the odd one out is the federal government.
Ashton believes the next step is a national action plan before trying for the inquiry.
