Manitoba families furious with RCMP's missing persons database delay


An RCMP database for missing persons and unidentified remains is still incomplete and is far over budget, five years after the Harper government touted the database as "concrete action" on missing and murdered indigenous women.

It likely won't be ready until late 2016, stoking frustration among victims' families in Manitoba.

"It's a disappointment, really. The RCMP were promising us that they would help us find justice for murdered ones or bring missing ones home. Nothing has been done, nothing at all," said Crystal Bruyere, whose cousin Fonessa was killed eight years ago. "They haven't told us anything at all, just that her case is still at a standstill."
