"Montreal lawyer Michèle Moreau announced her resignation as executive director of Canada’s missing and murdered indigenous women and girls inquiry on Friday."
Hmmm... what could possibly be driving that decision? Is it possible there's nothing to report?
"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)."
More to the point...
"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."
