THUNDER BAY – The ninth recommendation from the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. This Call to Justice pertains to human and Indigenous rights and governmental obligations:

NetNewsLedger is running all of the recommendations of The National Inquiry into Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women. #MMIWG – On National Indigenous People’s Day in 2019 NetNewsLedger was told in Thunder Bay that “We don’t talk about Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women anymore – It’s over”.

It isn’t over, sadly it is continuing to go on and on.
