"A new, online map sets out to demonstrate the extent of violence against Aboriginal women in Canada.
The map, released Feb. 5, by the online hacker group Anonymous pays particular attention to Thunder Bay, where the group has been critical of the police investigation into the abduction and sexual assault of a First Nations woman."
"Nine of Canada’s provinces pressed Wednesday for a national inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women across the country.
The action came after a meeting in Winnipeg of aboriginal affairs ministers from every province and territory except British Columbia.
“We jointly call upon the federal government to call a national inquiry into this matter of missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls,” said Manitoba’s Aboriginal Affairs Minister Eric Robinson, chairman of the working group of the provincial and territorial aboriginal affairs."
That Aboriginal women are likely to be victims of violence is not news: Aboriginal women aged 25 to 44 are five times more likely to suffer a violent death than other women in Canada. Amnesty International (Stolen Sisters, 2004 and No More Stolen Sisters, 2009) and the Native Women’s Association of Canada (Voices of our Sisters In Spirit, 2009 and What Their Stories Tell Us, 2010) have documented more than 500 cases of Aboriginal women who have gone missing or been murdered since the 1960s. Half of the cases have never been solved.
Au Québec, il faut vivre en ermite pour ne pas avoir entendu parler de Natasha Cournoyer, Diane Grégoire ou Julie Surprenant. Mais Tiffany Morrison? Quand ses restes ont été retrouvés au pied du pont Mercier, en 2010, rares sont les médias qui ont rapporté la nouvelle. La jeune mère de Kahnawake a été assassinée dans l'indifférence générale, comme des centaines d'autres femmes autochtones avant elle, d'un bout à l'autre du pays. Portrait d'une tragédie silencieuse.
