4 out of 5 in Canada agree with MMIW National Inquiry
A recent poll says four out of five Canadians are in favour Canada doing a national inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women and girls.
40% of those surveyed said they do not think an inquiry will make things better for indigenous women.
Central and Atlantic Canadians are more strongly supportive than those who live in western Canada – but in all regions the majority supports an inquiry.
Canadian women are more supportive of an inquiry – and more optimistic about its outcome – than men.
Indigenous women in Canada are roughly six times more likely than other women to be victims of homicide.
RCMP reports have identified roughly 1,200 cases of Aboriginal women and girls who have been murdered or gone missing since 1980.
Federal cabinet ministers charged with leading the pre-inquiry public consultation process say they that the actual number may be as high as 4,000.
