IN THE HOUSE ~ Member's Statement ~ calling for a full public inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women

    Mr. Peter Julian (Burnaby—New Westminster, NDP): Mr. Speaker, my colleague, the member for Abitibi—Baie-James—Nunavik—Eeyou, rose in the House last Friday. He touched Canadians with a very personal, very real and very touching story about his brother, his mother and the experience of so many indigenous people across Canada. This type of tragedy and injustice is far too common.

    We were sent to this House to speak up for all people living in this country. New Democrats take this responsibility seriously, and although the Conservative government may try to shut us down and limit debate, we will continue to find innovative ways to break through and make those voices heard, like we did last Friday.

    We will continue to bring indigenous voices to the House of Commons and repeat their call for a full public inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women. One year from now, in 2015, within 100 days of taking office, Canada's first New Democratic Party government will take action and put into place that much-needed public inquiry.
