Inquiry into missing and murdered women needs funding, advocates say


The good intentions driving plans for a national inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women must be matched with money to implement recommendations that come out of it, a group of long-time women’s advocates said before meeting with Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett.

And although victims’ families should be represented at the inquiry, the proceedings should also make room for groups that have worked with vulnerable women for years and are uniquely well-placed to address sexism, racism and violence that shadow so many victims’ lives, the advocates said.
