    whyaduck, thank you so much for posting all this info on these missing girls, it is very helpful and they deserve the attention.

    rcmp needs to change their racist attitudes towards first nation women, it is so sad.
    the canadian govt should put funds towards transportation for young women who need to travel hwy 16, be it a bus or even a big van to keep these girls safe. they should put emergency call boxes along hwy 16 also.

    i truly believe these cases are solvable, it's just odd to be that the rcmp doesn't seem to care.

    OTTAWA—A national database that is supposed to coordinate law enforcement investigations into missing aboriginal women across the country won’t be ready until 2013.
    Despite the Conservative government calling it a “pressing” criminal justice priority in the Throne Speech last year, the RCMP says the database will not be up and running until “early 2013.”
    When it is complete, the database will not be solely dedicated to missing and murdered native women but is instead designed to be a missing persons’ database. It may not even collect information that identifies victims by their aboriginal identity.
