Statement made on 13 May 2009 by Senator Sharon Carstairs (retired)

Hon. Sharon Carstairs:

Honourable senators, my supplementary question is to Leader of the Government in the Senate. The honourable minister, in response to a variety of questions, has indicated that there is a concern by the Minister of State with responsibility for the Status of Women and the Minister of Indian Affairs and Northern Development.

However, almost all these murders have occurred in Western Canada, and in every Western province it is the RCMP — who report indirectly to the Minister of Public Safety — who police these areas.

Can the leader tell the house today what kind of task force is in place within the RCMP to investigate these murders — because often they are going undetected — and to provide appropriate supports for women in communities so that justice can be served?
