Sign Petition to Call for Aboriginal Women's Inquiry
Sign the Petition — Justice for Canada’s Aboriginal Women and Girls
Tell Prime Minister Harper to launch a public inquiry today
September 4, 2014 — The RCMP has reported close to 1,200 cases of missing or murdered Aboriginal women and girls between 1980 and 2012. That same report highlighted the fact that this number is disproportionately high, showing how Aboriginal women and girls make up over 16% of female homicides, 11% of missing women and yet make up only 4% of the female population in Canada.
With evidence like this, the only right thing to do is call for a public inquiry.
Join the call for a public inquiry. Send the Prime Minister an e-mail and add your voice to growing call for a Public Inquiry into Canada's missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls.
