Canada’s Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women | Direct From with Dena Takruri – AJ+
Thousands of Indigenous women and girls have gone missing or been murdered across Canada. After 15-year-old Tina Fontaine’s body was found at the bottom of a river, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau opened a national inquiry into the epidemic. But many families fear they’ll never see justice. AJ+’s Dena Takruri visits Winnipeg, Manitoba, where more Indigenous women and girls have gone missing or been murdered than anywhere else in the country. After years of failure on the part of police and the government, activists here are taking matters into their own hands.
