    "CBC's investigation into unsolved cases of missing and murdered indigenous women has learned of 22 more deaths and disappearances across Canada, including seven that occurred this year.

    CBC News will tweet the names and cases of the more than 250 missing women and girls in its investigation over the next 24 hours, to mark the announcement today of the much-anticipated national inquiry by Indigenous and Northern Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett.

    For the past year, CBC News has been investigating these unsolved cases, some of which back as far as 1951"

    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.

    "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'.
