‘Is Anybody Happy With The MMIW Inquiry?’

The MMIW Inquiry has asked for more time…and more money. However, it seems that most people – except for the federal government and what’s left of the MMIW Inquiry commissioners – think that the Inquiry has basically been a disaster. We hate to say “I told you so” but…

“A large coalition of family members of missing and murdered ‘indigenous’ women, ‘indigenous’ leaders and others is asking the federal government to refuse a request for additional time and money that was made by the inquiry…

“In a strongly-worded letter sent this week to Carolyn Bennett, the Minister of Crown-‘Indigenous’ Relations, the nearly 200 signatories say there has been a lack of engagement on the part of inquiry commissioners and insufficient supports provided to family and friends who have testified….

The national inquiry has bulldozed through our communities and an extension will continue to exacerbate the emotional and psychological burden on the very people it intended to solace”,
the letter says.
A recurring narrative from communities has emerged: They came, they took our stories, they left.”

“Under those circumstances, the letter says,

the inquiry must complete its work in a timely manner. Without extension. Without additional resources”.

“The coalition includes {the usual} people such as Sheila North Wilson, the Grand Chief of the Manitoba Keewatinowi Okimakanak, Ava Hill, the Chief of the {Mohawk} Six Nations of the Grand River, and Pamela Palmater, an ‘indigenous’ {anti-Canadian} activist who is a professor at Ryerson University, as well as numerous friends and family members of women who have been murdered or have gone missing…

“The inquiry, which has now heard from close to 880 witnesses in communities across Canada, has been a source of controversy for nearly a year. Many staff members and one commissioner have resigned.

“We hate to say ‘I told you so’ but when this Inquiry was announced, we expressed our conviction that it would turn into a colossal waste of time and money, and end up helping no one…”

“The four remaining commissioners said earlier this month that they can complete their mandate in credible fashion if Bennett would extend the deadline, which is now set for late this year, to Dec. 1, 2020, and provide them with as much as $50-million in addition to the $54-million that is already budgeted.

“Bennett is expected to respond to that request shortly…

“Chief commissioner Marion Buller said on Thursday, in response to the letter, that commissioners value and listen carefully to all feedback they receive from families and survivors, but they believe the request for an extension is necessary to do justice to the mandate they have been given.

With more time, the national inquiry will be able to develop a better understanding of the underlying causes of violence against ‘indigenous’ women and girls {It’s called ‘Reserve Culture’ and the violence comes from aboriginal males. Now, just have the courage to say that in your report…}, listen to and consult with various institutions and experts, and make effective recommendations to address them”,
she said…”

Stop Blaming ALL Canadians’:
“When aboriginal women are battered or murdered, the perpetrator is their male partner in the overwhelming majority of the cases. That partner is almost always aboriginal. Aboriginal women are also far more likely to be battered or murdered by their partners than are non-aboriginal women…
Rather than concentrating on the massive problem of aboriginal male violence to women, aboriginal leaders insist on trying to focus on the tiny fraction of female victims of violence who are missing and may have been murdered by non-aboriginal men…”
