Check this out: High Percentage of Missing Women in Canada are Indigenous

What a heartbreaking story! Loretta Saunders, age 26, was found dead alongside a highway in eastern Canada on February 26th. She was an aboriginal Canadian.

She was set to graduate from Saint Mary’s University in May with a degree in sociology and criminology. Her thesis focuses on three Nova Scotia cases involving indigenous women who were murdered.

Coincidence?

Maryanne Pearce spent seven years researching cases of murdered Canadian women for her doctoral thesis at the University of Ottawa. Out of 3,329 cases, 24.8% were indigenous Canadians, though this group only makes up 2% of Canadians.

Let’s just hope that the Canadian government stops ignoring this issue and promotes justice immediately. If you are interested in supporting this cause, you can sign the Change.org petition here.
