Everyone is concerned about the murdered and missing aboriginal and First Nation women in Canada. The murder rate in the Canadian Aboriginal community during the last 50 years is astounding.
What year did the government start giving financial handouts to tribal residents with oil? Was that in the 1970s?

What will the Aboriginal Community say when statistics reveal that murders of Aboriginal women, infants, and other people are predominantly committed by other members of the Aboriginal Community? Can the Aboriginal Community continue to look to the non-aboriginal Canadian Government to give money to a solution that can only be solved internally? If the Aboriginal Community insists on managing programs and finances to solve the problem, and the problem is internal, there needs to be transparency of how this internal problem is being managed.

When will the Aboriginal Community allow full transparency of finances and results of spending to address high incidence of missing and murdered women in their community? From infant to great grandmother - there are no exceptions in the missing/murdered Aboriginal women in Canada.

First Nation Murder Facts Revealed

In response to the title of this thread: 29% of the missing or murdered aboriginals are girls and women, 71% of the missing or murdered aboriginals are boys and men.

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/britis...crey-1.3416631

Quote:

Missing and murdered indigenous men and boys should be part of a national inquiry into Canada's missing and murdered women, says a First Nations leader.


Ernie Crey, the chief councillor of the Cheam First Nation in B.C., is calling on those who believe that the inquiry should be expanded to make their voices heard in Ottawa ......

According to statistics gathered by UBC Okanagan professor Adam Jones and his research assistant, Penny Handley, of approximately 2,500 aboriginal people who were murdered in Canada between 1982 and 2011, 71 per cent were male.



Crey said he recognizes that adding this element to the inquiry "might make it an enormous challenge," but said the statistics are undeniable.


"We simply can't turn our backs on this," .....

"It has to be put in the hands of government as to how they might handle it and how they might respond to it, because the inquiry that's going to take place around women is going to be an enormous undertaking unto itself, and this would add a whole new dimension to it. But it's an important one." ......

Missing women's inquiry should include aboriginal men, says Ernie Crey - British Columbia - CBC News.
Exactly - missing men and boys from the same Aboriginal community during the same time period are typically hidden because full awareness of murder in the community in general completely dilutes the number of missing/murdered women over the last 50-60 years. There is a high murder rate in the Aboriginal community, but public awareness is on the females that are missing and murdered with a bizarre implication that the perpetrators of the crimes are outside the Aboriginal community.

Typically, for generations, Aboriginal woman are injured and murdered by people they know in the Aboriginal community. Aboriginal males are injured and murdered by the same community.

Another National Inquiry into murdered/missing Aboriginal women will achieve nothing.

Perhaps I'm wrong, but it seems like money is given to Aboriginal community to solve internal problems, and they in turn insist that they manage the money. Not only is there monkey business with the money, but there are no results. Each year, more money is required and there are never results. Governments change, but the money and mandate for Aboriginals to manage the money do not change.

More funds for the missing and murdered women in the Aboriginal communities will most likely vanish again with no visible results. At what point will Canadians require results if the status quo is to be maintained. If there are no results, should instead the government manage the funds - and what about the mandate for Aboriginals to be on a committee insisting that Aboriginals retain autonomy with spending on well defined community problems.

Political correctness can lead to a vicious circle.

Lieneke, you've written two posts on this thread, and in those posts, you've mentioned the following words or derivatives:


"money" - 7 times


"finance" - 3 times


"funds" - 2 times


"handout" - 1 time


"spending" - 2 times


Is this about aboriginal victimization or is it about money?


I agree that the current set-up is not the right one, but I also hate to break it to you that a better solution will still require money.

I agree, but the resources should be focused for the overall good of the community, not handed to a cadre of Chiefs and hangers on to spend on themselves.


The Stoney and TsuTsina near Calgary are among the wealthiest tribes in the country, given their mineral resources, yet incredibly large percentages of the population live in what are effectively shanties due to the distribution of funds.


The worst are the kids. At 18 they're handed a cheque for tens of thousands of dollars, that in a majority of cases gets blown on jacked up trucks, sleds and quads (plus in some cases booze and drugs) They're not equipped (nor are many 18 year olds) to deal with that sudden windfall. More education and resources are needed, but it's tough to convince people not to **** it all away when everything else they have is paid for.
