Indigenous women disappear on ships on Lake Superior, Carolyn Bennett told

 


Federal cabinet ministers say they learned more about the specific safety concerns of indigenous women in northern Ontario — including reports that women have disappeared on ships on Lake Superior — during consultation meetings in Thunder Bay, Ont., on Wednesday.

The consultations are taking place across the country to help shape a national public inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women.

CBC News first reported on research that First Nations women were being sold into the sex trade on U.S. ships in Lake Superior in 2013.
