MMIW Inquiry Loses Director While Families Ask To Start Over

OTTAWA The national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls has lost another high-profile member of its entourage.

Waneek Horn-Miller, a former Olympian who was working as the inquiry's director of community relations, is the latest person to leave the commission tasked with exploring the root causes of violence toward Indigenous women and girls.

A spokesperson for the inquiry says Horn-Miller's departure is due solely to family reasons.

For weeks, the commission has faced questions from concerned family members who say they have lost faith in the process, which is expected to take at least two years and cost $53.8 million.

In an open letter released today, additional family members called on the commission to start over from scratch, citing the resignation last month of one of the commissioners, Marilyn Poitras.

The commissioners say they are moving ahead with their work and receiving feedback from families, including through a national advisory circle.

It was doomed to fail. Who really thought they'd get to the bottom of anything? Most murders are by family members not some boogyman out there targeting native women.
1/3 of all murders in the states at least, go unsolved.

Going exactly as planned. Just another big "We Are Helping" circle wank from the Liberal party designed to look good, presumably provide a few of those "good middle class jerbs" Justin is always mewling about, and accomplish nothing more than kicking the can into the rhubarb

Or

Virtue Signalling is the new Government Make-Work programme

I originally thought it was a delaying tactic. More of justin's 'listening while ignoring', not ideas let alone solutions.

But clearly I'm an amateur at this politics game. It never even occurred to me that Liberals could set up a high profile investigative body, restrain it's investigative ability beyond where it could be even minimally functional, have it disband itself after about a year, leaving instructions to re-institute itself after a few months of inactivity. And then repeat.

The conservatives did two things on this file
1) they took the report by the RCMP about aboriginal women murders at face value, which showed statistically there were a lot of solved homicides on that category, and the problems were local and difficult to use mere enforcement to prevent, deterrence being less than it should be due to other factors. For example, note that several RCMP establishments there have to be surrounded by gated fences and such, including dwellings.
2) they implemented audits on the bands, after co-relating the worst waste with the worst living conditions. Presumably worse living conditions lead to more domestic squabbles, which in turn lead to ...

The Liberal solution was to
1) reject the RCMP report, and implement a delaying program that had no hope, but justin could stand up and give non-answers in the press every day saying "This is what we've done" when what they'd done was hamstrung
2) undo the audit requirement.

In other words, they seem to have done worse than nothing.

Or did I miss something?

:la:

It's a white supremacist conspiracy designed to cast aboriginals as incapable, failed, subhumans and to impress this opinion on Canadians for an entire generation, so that there won't be any opposition when all the aboriginals are exterminated.

It's obviously a hidden agenda by white males; it's their fault for being oppressors.

All we need to know about the mentality at play here was demonstrated live on CBC during the Canada150 "celebrations" on air during the Holiday weekend... Remember the protest teepee?

During a moment of appeasement, a reporter was asking one of the "spokeswomen" what they hoped to accomplish? (I recall there being 2 women who appeared to be the designated speakers for the group). She responds with this rambling diatribe of centuries old injustices and when referring specifically about the MMIW angle actually used the phrase "They are out there hunting us!" referring supposedly to gangs of "white boogeymen" raping and murdering their girls!??... and the conversation just went on without a beat and no challenges of any kind from the reporter asking for any explanation of that supposed "fact"... It was just accepted at face value as if it was completely true!??

And that basically is the only end game that they will apparently accept?? A doctored report which states the narrative they want. What good would come of such a completely bogus "inquiry" ??

They didn't like the results of the other 8 or 9 investigations.

What did Freud say about over and over, expecting different results......
