MP JOLIBOIS DEMANDS ANSWERS OVER MMIW INQUIRY CONCERNS

OTTAWA – On International Women’s Day, NDP Indigenous and Northern Affairs deputy critic Georgina Jolibois (Desnethé--Missinippi--Churchill River) stood in the House of Commons and demanded explanations for the continued problems with the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.

 

Jolibois:

 

“Mr. Speaker, Families of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls feel they are being left in the dark. When in fact they should be properly informed and involved in every step of the inquiry. And worse, northern families do not have access to proper information due to unreliable internet and other crucial services.

 

How will the Prime Minister ensure the commitment made to all indigenous families affected by these tragedies are involved and feel like true progress is being made?”
