Mother of murdered woman vows to stay on Victoria Island until MMIW inquiry happens

APTN National News
A woman whose daughter was murdered has been holding a vigil on a small island in Ottawa since the spring and has no plan on leaving.

That is until the Trudeau government carries through with its promise to hold a national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women.

APTN’s Annette Francis has the story.

 

Annette is Anishinaabe from Alderville First Nation. She started at APTN as an Ottawa Correspondent in 2007 and has covered Indigenous issues from Parliament Hill and First Nation communities across Ontario. She has also freelanced for CBC Indigenous and Ricochet Media.

  1. Great interview! I note that Victoria Island has been a place for peaceful negotiation for indigenous people since time immemorial, and was kept by the British for negotiation with and among First Nations.
