Report paints grim picture of violence against native women in Quebec

 


As the federal government prepares to launch a national inquiry into murdered and missing native women, a Quebec group has come out with a grim report on violence against women in the province’s First Nations communities.

The authors of the document, published Monday by Quebec Native Women Inc., hope its release will spur the province to act.

The report focuses on cases of missing and murdered aboriginal women in the province and comprises 18 months of testimonials from people in various indigenous communities.
