Indigenous men 2 times more likely to be murdered in Ontario than Indigenous women: OPP

Kenneth Jackson
APTN National News
There have been 54 Indigenous women murdered in jurisdictions patrolled by the Ontario Provincial Police since 1964 according to new statistics to be released by the force Wednesday.

Of those, eight remained unsolved and another eight Indigenous women are listed as missing dating back to 1957 up to the end of 2014.

The OPP began looking at new and historical cases in 2010 and found 125 Indigenous men have been murdered between 1978 to 2014 with one remaining unsolved.

There are 40 open cases of missing Indigenous men since 1956.

There are 52 jurisdictions not policed by the OPP in Ontario.

The OPP are releasing the data Wednesday, but the force previously provided APTN with statistics in May 2014 and said they began looking at cases to determine if serial killers were targeting Indigenous women, which they, at the time, ruled out.

APTN will update this story when the OPP officially release the data at 10:30 a.m. local time.

  1. Why would we have an inquiry into the missing and murdered and not look into the most prevalent problem ………….. violence against MEN?

    This may be the start of a coverup.

    (the first post disappeared)

  2. Why on earth would we have a crown commission looking into missing and murdered aboriginal people and NOT deal with the largest issue, MEN?

    Who is looking to coverup this stuff?
