Keep that money train rolling

The chief commissioner of the national inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women and girls has admitted to a “poor communication strategy” in the wake of intense criticism about the inquiry’s progress.

The commission is also planning to ask for an extension, now that only one hearing is scheduled to take place before the fall.

Crucially for a prevailing stereotype related to the issue, nearly 90 per cent of murders of aboriginal women were solved, a rate that barely differed from that of non-aboriginal women (88 versus 89 per cent).

Of the 2,500 murdered aboriginal Canadians, murdered in Canada between 1982 and 2011, fully 71 per cent — 1,750 — were male, and 745 were female
Let face it... this is simply another government exercise in publicity...
The overall risk to Aboriginal women is about what you would infer from just combining the very high general Aboriginal exposure to lethal violence with the much reduced general female exposure to it.

No third, additional element of risk is apparent in the numbers: over the 1980-2012 period covered in the RCMP report, for example, StatsCan estimates that 14 per cent of all female murder victims were Aboriginal, but 17 per cent of male murder victims were.

The lack of a statistical smoking gun makes an emotional debate more complicated.

LAST WORD: Not a race thing at all
The consolidated data from the nearly 300 contributing police agencies has confirmed that 70 per cent of the offenders were of aboriginal origin, 25 per cent were non-aboriginal, and five per cent were of unknown ethnicity.”
Note: In 62 per cent of the cases, aboriginal females who were victims of homicide were killed by a spouse, family member or intimate relation.

Let's get real: unless they can blame "whitey", the commissioners aren't interested in hearing testimony.

this is a politically oriented liberal picnic along the lines of that whole marc lepine/ gamil gharbi farce.

forget that more aboriginal men, almost a 3 to 1 ratio, are murdered than aboriginal women.

forget that the solve rate for the murders of aboriginal women (89%) is no different than non-aboriginal women (88%).

justin ('i'm a feminist, biyotch!') trudeau is willing to do whatever it takes to turn this into an issue.

i wonder how the mothers of murdered aboriginal men feel about this song & dance.

3 elements at work here: Libranos - make work project - slushfunded patronge

Look at the party drones and camp followers in this farce and read the itemized expence account - there's where the money went - it was a travel, drink and dine toot for old librano hacks.
