Report Paints Sad Picture

A top First Nations official in Thunder Bay says a new RCMP report shows the need for a national inquiry into murdered and missing  Aboriginal women.   The Mounties report shows that more and more Aboriginal women in Canada are becoming murder victims at a rate that's out of proportion to the rest of the population.    Alvin Fiddler of the Nishnawbe Aski Nation, says it's a positive step but notes it only includes women murdered between 1980 and 2012, leaving the possibility of even more deaths.
