‘Another One Gone’

The MM‘I’W Inquiry – the fiasco continues:
“Another staffer from the national inquiry looking into missing and murdered ‘indigenous’ {aboriginal} woman and girls has resigned. Melodie Casella said the federal government’s limited extension to the length of the national inquiry was a leading reason why she quit… She said the tight timeframe will not allow the inquiry to get to the ‘root causes’. 

“The inquiry was seeking an additional two years. Instead, in early June, it was granted an extension to April 30, 2019, for writing its final report and an additional two months to wind down its operations by June 30, 2019.

“Casella’s resignation is the latest bump in the road faced by the commission. Dozens of others have also resigned or been fired since it started in 2016 {See below}…”

From 2017:
“To get an idea of why the federal commission on missing and murdered ‘indigenous’ women and girls has acquired such a reputation for uselessness, try getting in touch with it.

“There are two phone numbers on its website: one for anyone wishing to contact the commission, and one for anyone who feels triggered and traumatized

as a result of reading the content on this website“.

“I called the former.
Voicemail. Left a message.

“I called again later.
Voicemail.

“There is an email address, too. I emailed.
No response.
And again.
Crickets.

“After I obtained the email address for Sue Montgomery, the commission’s senior communications adviser, and asked for a chat, the reply came back:

I’m sorry Neil, but I’m not allowed to talk to the media.” …

“The commission…has morphed, since its creation eight months ago, into an impenetrable bureaucratic fortress of the type government is so good at creating.

“It’s learned how to spend money…and cranks out sensitive-sounding, culturally-appropriate news releases, and spends a lot of time considering weighty legal issues about itself, but doesn’t seem terribly interested in, or very good, at actually speaking to the families of missing and murdered ‘indigenous’ women — which is, after all, its main job.

It’s a mess … it’s a boondoggle,”
says an ‘indigenous’ colleague who covers, or at least tries to cover, the commission.
They’re not very good at saying or doing much.” …

“One commission staffer called the crisis hotline — the one people are supposed to call if they are triggered or traumatized — and spoke to a few counsellors. Apparently a lot of families had called, but not to discuss personal trauma. They wanted to talk about the trauma of trying to talk to the commission.

“The commission’s legal counsel, Susan Vella, reportedly takes the view that what happens once someone leaves a message is no one’s business but the commission’s. And that includes the person who left the message…

“The Native Women’s Association, which, as its name suggests, represents, well, native women, has not actually been given official standing to appear before the commission, even though it applied months ago.

It’s still under consideration“,

says a commission insider. The NWAC, meanwhile, has given the commission multiple failing grades on an interim “report card” posted on its website.

“The commission’s most basic problem is that it has still not built a proper database of ‘indigenous’ families who have lost loved ones, despite having the power to subpoena records from, say, the RCMP, which has investigated…thousands of cases.

“CBC News, after years of research, has compiled an online database of faces and names. So has the NWAC. The commission, meanwhile, has only a list of ‘indigenous’ people who have managed to navigate their way through the commission’s faceless bureaucracy and “self-identified” as relatives of the dead or missing…

“The five commissioners themselves also remain largely a mystery to the audience they are supposed to be serving. Four of them are themselves ‘indigenous’, including Marion Buller, a former provincial court judge in British Columbia.

“But, according to an official in the federal department of ‘Indigenous’ and Northern Affairs, legal counsel Vella has taken the view that they must restrict any public speaking, for incomprehensible legal reasons…”

Missing and murdered aboriginal inquiry a waste of money{February 13, 2016}:
“The federal inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women is being labelled as a waste of money by a local advocate in Edmonton… She believes the money would be better spent on things like educational training…on issues like safe sex and drinking and driving, among others.”

Stop Blaming ALL Canadians{October 7, 2015}:
“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…”
