Children's advocate calls for missing, murdered women inquiry to probe suicides

 


Manitoba's children's advocate says an alarming number of indigenous girls are committing suicide — a disturbing trend which should be included in the upcoming inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women.

Darlene MacDonald says she made the suggestion to Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett in a letter last week.

MacDonald says more than half the suicide deaths she has investigated in the last three years have been indigenous girls.
