Meetings On Missing, Murdered Aboriginal Women Focus On Police
CALGARY — Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett said she heard a familiar message Friday in her final meeting outside Ottawa with families of missing and murdered aboriginal women.
Bennett said many victims' families in Calgary believe their concerns have been ignored by police.
"The upset was throughout the room,'' she said after the meeting. "What can happen is these cases are not deemed a homicide, and very early on it can be called a suicide or an accident or an overdose, and then there's no investigation,'' Bennett told a news conference with Status of Women Minister Patty Hajdu.
