Police forces look to take missing, murdered Indigenous women inquiry findings

According to official estimates almost 1,200 women and girls went missing or were killed between 1980 and 2012

The massive report on Indigenous people in Canada says European colonists conducted a full-fledged genocide against the First Nations.

The final report highlights what it calls persistent and deliberate human and Indigenous rights violations-the root causes of the high rates of violence against Indigenous women and girls throughout Canada's history, and to this day.

Native Council of P.E.I. Throughout the MMIWG report, the word genocide is used several times to describe the violence and deaths. "Sustainable, long-term funding is needed to protect the lives of Indigenous women and girls".

"Indigenous women and their families were denied [the chance] to come together today in a safe space and have these conversations". She presented as an expert witness at the inquiry. "I would encourage, as we step forward, that we make some decisive decisions and start setting out a path for the next steps for all of us to keep working toward".

The report calls on all governments, the private sector and the public-at-large to act on 231 "calls to justice".

Evelyne Youngchief, a survivor of violence who works on the front lines on the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver, said Monday the report may offer closure to some, but not her.

The association, which had standing at the inquiry, said it is grateful to be trusted with the responsibility, adding it will study the commission's findings, its recommendations and how the police chiefs can assist police services across Canada.

"If the strategy is not actualized with a concrete plan that is the risk in terms of the next steps", Hajdu continued. Indigenous people expect action and real systemic change.

Donald Trump Asks Theresa May To "Stick Around" For Trade Deal
Theresa May's news conference with Donald Trump had an "end of era" feel to it. Trump's day will be rounded off with dinner at the USA ambassador's residence.

Nishnawbe Aski Nation deputy Grand Chief, Walter Naveau, said the report validates the tragic experiences Indigenous people have been enduring for years. "That that was taken from us again - that safety", Bennett said.

Uhuru was invited to the conference by Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and is expected back early next week.

Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau speaks during the closing ceremony of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in Gatineau, Quebec, Canada, June 3, 2019.

"This violence amounts to a race-based genocide of Indigenous Peoples, including First Nations, Inuit, and Metis, which especially targets women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA people".

Ewenin said she made a decision to testify because she "wanted to make a difference for indigenous women". It is part of colonization. "Colonization directly attacked Indigenous women specifically through pieces of legislation that is still in place today".

But Trudeau says people are wrapped up in the use the powerful term, when the focus should be on how to put an end to the issues raised by the inquiry.

In response, the federal government announced that it would provide $9.6 million over five years to support the RCMP's new national investigative standards and practices unit to provide national oversight to major investigations.

They said police were slow to launch missing-persons investigations and quick to label unexplained deaths as drownings, suicides or drug overdoses, even when evidence suggested foul play.
