Mr. Speaker, today in Winnipeg, provincial cabinet ministers joined Canada's aboriginal leaders for a two-day meeting on missing and murdered aboriginal women and girls. Three federal cabinet ministers were invited. None are attending.
AFN National Chief Shawn Atleo has said:
Striking an independent and inclusive National Public Commission of Inquiry would demonstrate a clear and focused commitment to achieve positive change for and with Indigenous peoples.
Will the government commit today to calling a public inquiry on the tragedy of over 600 missing and murdered aboriginal women?
