Is Canada a serial killer paradise?

Canadian Police May Have Greatly Underestimated How Many Indigenous Women Are Missing Or Dead

Quote:Research from the Native Women’s Association of Canada documented about 3,000 more cases than the Royal Canadian Mounted Police reported in 2014, Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett said on Monday.

Vancouver-based initiative Walk4Justice compiled a list -- which the NWAC acquired -- of 4,232 indigenous women who have been killed or have gone missing since the 1980s. This figure stands in stark contrast to the RCMP's initial count of 1,181.

Of course the article then goes into a bunch of shït about race and ignores the obvious issue of the number of women being murdered and serial killers on the loose. Most of those murders were along major highways.

Politicians hide themselves away
They only started the war
Why should they go out to fight?
They leave that role to poor

It does appear nobody cared about those missing/murdered women. sad2.gif

I just read o the morning news that the Canadian Gov't is imposing mandatory training in regards to indigenous peoples' needs.

Quote:The new employee training will help public servants partner with Indigenous people to ensure that culturally relevant and appropriate policies and programs will work to actively redress the legacy of residential schools, advance the process of reconciliation with Indigenous communities and make a real difference in the lives of First Nations, Inuit and Métis people.

Agreed... If you feel the need to venture down that rabbit hole, expect what you find to be pretty damned abysmal.

I recall reading that a female police detective's investigations were all ignored by her male colleagues because the female coming forward about Robert Pickton's activities was considered a prostitute. blink.gif I wonder how many police used informants that were drug dealers and thieves.

So in answer to the OP's question, yes, it would certainly appear to be.

Quote:On October 22, 2015, Elizabeth Denham, the Information and Privacy Commissioner of British Columbia, published a 65-page report outlining how B.C. government officials had “triple deleted” emails relating to the Highway of Tears.[18] In her report Access Denied, Denham describes the act of “triple deleting” as transferring an email to the “deleted” folder on a computer system, deleting the email from the folder and then overriding the backup that admits the system to retrieve deleted items.[19] By deleting these files, Denham states the government had breached the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.[20] Denham became aware of the scandal in May 2015 after she received a letter from Tim Duncan, the former executive assistant to Transportation Minister Todd Stone.[21] Duncan claimed that as he was responding to a FOI (Freedom of Information) application, ministerial assistant George Gretes ordered for Duncan to search his records for any files pertaining to the Highway of Tears and missing women.[22] Once the files were located, Duncan testified that Gretes ordered for them to be deleted. When Duncan hesitated, Gretes allegedly took the keyboard and “triple deleted” all of the emails relating to the Highway of Tears. [23] According to Denham, Gretes originally denied this claim but later admitted to the triple deletion during a second police interview.[24] Denham states that Gretes—who resigned from his job in October 2015—would have then lied under oath.[25] A year earlier in the summer of 2014, a team from the Transportation Ministry toured Highway 16 and conducted numerous meetings with Aboriginal leaders and communities.[26] The significance of this project was to produce safer travel solutions for women living along Highway 16, many of whom had turned to hitchhiking as a way of transportation. In November 2014, the NDP made the FOI request seeking all government files pertaining to missing women, the Highway of Tears and meetings arranged by the ministry: the report Duncan would later respond to.[27] Despite a two-month tour and multiple meetings, the B.C. government claimed the FOI request produced no files relating to the Highway of Tears.[28] According to Denham’s report, these records did exist until government officials destroyed them in order to “skirt freedom of information laws”.[29] In Access Denied, Denham called upon the RCMP to further investigate the triple deletion of government files.[30] In November 2015, Vancouver lawyer Mark Jetté was appointed as special prosecutor within the RCMP investigation. Jetté will act as the RCMP's independent legal advisor as well as administer an independent assessment of the evidence. He will also pursue any criminal charges that may be found appropriate.[31]

It's only blonde blue eyed middle class women that get press coverage if they go missing.

I think it has to do with a lack of understanding and sensitivity of aboriginal life and perhaps in some cases, racism.
