Number of missing and murdered indigenous women higher than thought: minister

 


OTTAWA—The number of missing and murdered indigenous women across the country is “way bigger” than 1,200, Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett said Monday.

Her comments came as the government marked the end of a consultation process with the families of victims as it prepares to establish a public inquiry into these losses.

The real breadth and depth of the tragedy is greater than was thought, Bennett said at a downtown Ottawa hotel as families met behind closed doors.
