The death of Loretta Saunders, an Aboriginal woman, shows yet again that the Harper government needs to launch an inquiry for missing and murdered Aboriginal females! Over 800 Aboriginal females have gone missing or have been murdered in Canada, and their families are STILL waiting for justice! We cannot claim to be a country based on respecting human rights when we are failing Aboriginals so miserably right here in Canada! How many Aboriginal females need to go missing or be killed before the Harper government acts on this issue?!
