    I wish the show covered more of the other girls, but I guess they only have an hour and sadly in the other cases the girls just simply disappeared.

    Everything is MOO and I am always willing to be wrong!

    i agree. So many girls are missing, seems unfair. It should have been a 2 hour show.

    I was disappointed on that too! They could have said it was a 2 hour show and they would continue it later or started it at 9 and added more stories. I know the other girls' families would want to talk about their missing women and children. I felt like the story was half-told and with such a massive amount of people missing murdered it would have been easy to fill two hours.

    Just watched, "Finding Dawn". If you can find it and watch, I highly recommend it. It tells more stories about the missing First Nation women from Canada. Made me cry often. I am hoping with people getting the word out, standing up for women and children, the violence will end.

    We are taught all about colonialism, residential schools and the assimilation of FN peoples in Canadian universities. As an education major, the indigenous studies course is mandatory and it is taught by an Aboriginal person and focuses largely on residential schools and the effects of colonization, as well as focusing on Aboriginal spirituality and tribal history. It is no longer ignored by the education system. It is very integrated and actually, is a large focus for the education system, at least at the university I attend.

    I recently wrote a research paper on missing Aboriginal women in Canada and concluded that most of the missing Aboriginal women shared similar lifestyle factors. The number 500 is not an official number. As was said already, there is no database of missing Aboriginal women. SIS was trying to create one but the Canadian government stopped funding to them last year, I believe. The number 500 was a result of research preformed by the NWAC and refers to the number of missing or murdered Aboriginal women.

    I came to the conclusion that many of these women shared high risk lifestyle factors which included prostitution, transiency, and alcohol or drug use. This is NOT an attempt to blame the victim; I believe it's important in identifying the underlying cause of this epidemic. I came to believe this in reading NUMEROUS missing women files, conducting an interview with a detective at KARE as well as a veteran crime reporter, watching Finding Dawn and reading texts. The larger issue involves providing community support, childhood intervention and funding to Aboriginal people.

    However, I will not deny that there is certainly a particular image that white Canadian society has of aboriginal women--easy, squaws, prostitutes--that perhaps perpetuates stereotypes that certainly results in predators targeting aboriginal women. Obviously, John Crawford is an example of one such predator although, many other are out there who have not been caught.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    I suspect that the serial killer or serial killers likely lives amongst the Aboriginal people of Canada and is one of them. Someone probably know who that person is. Reminds me of the I-45 Killer or Ciudad Juarez Murders.

    I think it's a long-haul or even short-haul trucker and a white man.

    Just as possible as well. I wonder if this could be a work of multiple killers.

    "Agitator"??? I don't care for the negative connotation that adjective implies.

    WTH?

    I love the quote from this article


    "Prostitution is not inevitable; it is male violence, power and control over the female body, fueled by organized crime, drug dealers, pimps and buyers," says Natasha Falle, who founded Sextrade101 in 2007. "With an average age of entry at 13, it is the sex trade that robs us of our life and security."

    VANCOUVER — A year and a half after a public inquiry called for urgent action to protect women along a stretch of highway in northern British Columbia known as the Highway of Tears, mayors and other leaders in the region say the province has yet to contact them about what needs to happen.
    Internal briefing notes also indicate a team of bureaucrats assigned to hold consultations with communities along Highway 16, where women have been disappearing or turning up dead for decades, have put that work on hold for much of the past year.
    What emerges is a picture of slow progress that appears to contradict the province’s claims that it has been busy holding a “tremendous number” of meetings about the issue with local governments.
