Inquiry Into Missing And Murdered Women

/ 97.3 The Eagle
              A coalition of aboriginal women’s advocates from B-C says the national inquiry into missing and murdered women needs to do more to reach out to family members and survivors. The group says it’s concerned by news reports that the inquiry has so far only identified about 100 potential witnesses among family members or survivors. The Coalition on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls in British Columbia says it understands commissioners don’t want to pressure people into appearing — but says their passive stance is conveying the wrong message that family members and survivors aren’t wanted or needed. It’s calling on the inquiry to immediately request all levels of government and all indigenous organizations with contact information to reach out to those groups to ensure they know how to register as witnesses.
