Chiefs in Ontario are taking matters into their own hands and have announced an action plan to deal with an inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women.
This comes after families have long demanded an inquiry.
Ontario regional Chief Isadore Day said the chiefs don’t want to wait any longer for the federal government to agree to a public inquiry, and noted the online campaign will help focus on the need for a national probe.
The Assembly of First Nations, the United Nations and several provinces have all called for a national inquiry into the missing and murdered women, but nothing is being done, added Day.
