Statement made on 07 June 2012 by Senator Mobina Jaffer

Hon. Mobina S. B. Jaffer:

Honourable senators, my question is directed to the Leader of the Government in the Senate. According to the Native Women's Association of Canada, there are over 582 missing and murdered Aboriginal women in our country. It is my belief that the fact that many of these stories go untold and that almost all of these cases remain unsolved is a testament to the discrimination many Aboriginal women in Canada continue to face. I cannot begin to imagine the pain and suffering that a family must endure, knowing that their loved one is missing but not being able to access justice.

What is our government doing to ensure that the families of the missing and murdered Aboriginal women do not have to deal with this pain and suffering in isolation?
