    I find it disingenuous and disrespectful to demand that all commissioners be present, as if they won’t brief each other, and OUTRAGEOUS that someone can say they demanded an inquiry and then describe the payment of the commissioners as making money “off the backs of our loved ones.”

    Why isn’t it acknowledged that a lot of the solved cases, it wasn’t just victims who were indigenous but also the killers and attackers? In fact as far as statistics go in what 95%+ of the people charged with incidents of “missing” and murdered indigenous women have been other indigenous people. Why is it always the victim who’s relayed as indigenous? Good storytellers always know what to leave the readers imagination to believe eh?

      Because a lot of people want to reinforce their prejudices rather than get real answers?
