Regina, Saskatchewan, March 8 — The Green Party of Saskatchewan (GPS) is joining the growing demand for the federal government to launch a Public Inquiry for Missing and Murdered Aboriginal women across Canada. GPS Leader Victor Lau says the victims and their families deserve both answers and justice. “What happened to these women is an outrage,” says Lau. “We cannot stand by as Aboriginal women are abducted, raped, murdered and then have their bodies hidden in remote locations. “We all know that where there is no justice, there is also no peace.” GPS provincial executive Member-At-Large and Candidate for Regina Rochdale constituency, Billy Patterson, says the untimely deaths of these women will never be over until there is a Public Inquiry into the deaths. “All Canadians deserve to be treated equal in the eyes of the law,” says Patterson. “First Nations and Métis women must stop being treated like second-class citizens.” Justice has turned a blind eye towards over 500 Aboriginal women since the 1970s. This International Women’s Day the GPS also calls on the Wall Government to add their support for a Public Inquiry for Murdered and Missing Aboriginal Women.
