First Nation missing and murdered women and girls: what is the Harper government trying to hide?

WENDAKE, QC, Aug. 23, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - The AFNQL strongly condemns the Harper government who persist on closing its eyes on the alarming situation of missing and murdered First Nation women and girls.

A recent murder in Manitoba was another opportunity for the Harper government to finally accept to face the truth and open its eyes and finally accept a public inquiry. But for the Harper Government this was only another sad opportunity to persist on trying to hide the truth. Prime Minister Harper once again said no.

By this stubbornness the Harper Government is sending a very alarming message to our women and girls: that they are in danger four times more that non aboriginal Canadian women and girls, and that the Harper government won't pay attention.

The AFNQL is a regional organization consisting of 43 chiefs of First Nations in Quebec and Labrador. For more information, visit its website at
