Murdered and Missing Aboriginal Women and GirlsPublished on 3 June 2015 Hansard and Statements by Senator Mobina Jaffer
Hon. Mobina S. B. Jaffer:
Honourable senators, I was very touched by the way the Leader of the Government talked about the history, and that we are all responsible for the history and that we all have to work to make things better.
The issue of murdered and missing Aboriginal women is not history. I come from British Columbia and, sadly, this is a continuing issue. If we can learn anything from history, it’s that this pain is continuing. We have to stop it. Will the government now appoint a national inquiry?
