Kenora meeting on missing and murdered Aboriginal women backfires on government



News that not only informs, but inspires.

APTN National News
It was supposed to be a simple meeting with the heads of various women’s groups in northern Ontario to talk about missing and murdered Aboriginal women.

But the meeting chaired by Status of Women minister Kellie Leitch didn’t quite go as planned.

Activists and family members of missing and murdered Aborgiinal women show up to have their say. And the first thing they said was they should have been invited in the first place.

APTN’s Ntawnis Piapot was there and has this story.

    As an elder I do not think we should give up this is such a vital issue and we have to take what ever it takes, I feel so bad that the meeting was by invitation only, I can understand why these people do not trust because of how this issue has been handle, the young women who spoke about her mother. What is it going to take for them to take us First Nation families serious. Please, Please let us not give up.
