    I could never understand Harper's stubborn resistance to the call for an inquiry. Yes, it's about time. I'm anxious to see if some of these murders will be solved.

    Number of missing, murdered indigenous women as high as 4,000, minister suggests
    RCMP concluded 1,017 indigenous women were killed between 1980-2012, and another 164 were missing

    By John Paul Tasker, CBC News Posted: Feb 16, 2016
    A 2014 report by the RCMP concluded 1,017 aboriginal women had been slain between 1980 and 2012, and that another 164 were considered missing.

    Hajdu, who represents Thunder Bay–Superior North, said NWAC's number is more believable because there is a history of police underreporting murders, or failing to investigate suspicious deaths.

    "When you actually start to add in, you know, disputed cases, for example, people that have claimed it's a suicide or death due to exposure, but in fact there's symptoms or signs that maybe it wasn't, then of course the numbers jump," Hajdu said ahead of a Liberal cabinet meeting.

    Activists working for the Sisters in Spirit initiative collected the names of indigenous women who are missing or murdered — they stopped counting when they got to 4,000.

    "If there has been [police] misconduct, then it needs to be addressed," she said.

    "That is going to be absolutely central to reopening some of these cold cases that have been sitting for many, many years. If we find there wasn't an adequate investigation in the first place, then those need to be looked at; our women deserve that much," she said.

    Imo, this will get much worse before it finally gets better. Paulson should resign immediately - let someone else lead the RCMP through the coming quagmire. Otherwise the mess will become defensive rather than honest during an inquiry - we don't need that to get in the way.

    For those who experienced it, the alleged bullying and harassment at the explosives training unit seemed completely at odds with the priority RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson put on addressing allegations of sexual harassment inside the force as well as promised reforms to what was seen as a flabby, slow and ineffective disciplinary system.

    Late last week, one of those former instructors wrote to Paulson for an explanation.

    Paulson passed the file to Deputy Commissioner Peter Henschel, who is responsible for the college.

    No question in my mind the MMIW inquiry will be a sham with Paulson left at the helm of the RCMP - Paulson can't even 'get his man' when he's right in front of him. For those who don't know, the RCMP motto is 'we always get our man'.
