Mother pleads for info 12 years after daughter Jennifer Catcheway vanishes.
An international crime demands nothing short of an international intervention.
The Indigenous sex worker died in 2011 and her body was found in a motel bathtub.
Indigenous peoples are calling for a national investigation that is centered on the families of missing and murdered Indigenous women, and they are also calling for immediate action. This nation is rich in monies directly derived from Indigenous lands and resources. Please don't try to tell us Canada just can't afford to do both. I would ask that people discussing these issues in the media not accept this dichotomy and not allow themselves to be divided into two camps: either in support of an inquiry or in support of 'action'. We can and should be engaging in both.
