Saskatoon’s mayor and councillors have a lot of reading to do.

By the end of the year they plan to have read each of the 1,200 pages from the final report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG).

On July 29 the city council adopted a motion requiring each member to read the full report and undertake efforts to implement the report’s calls for justice relevant to municipalities.

The motion was introduced by the city’s mayor, Charlie Clarke.

“Whenever you have such a huge and wide-ranging report about an issue that’s really, really important to our community — it affects many many families in our community and at the same time involves a lot of understanding, exploration of a lot of the different aspects of your community to make change and turn things around,” he said.
