Letters to the Editor

LETTERS: Inaction called into question

Editor:

The First Nations of Canada have been requesting an national inquiry into the deaths and disappearance of hundreds of Canadian aboriginal women. The federal government has refused this request.

Would the response of this government be any different if the hundreds of women missing or dead were Ukrainian, Jewish or Chinese Canadian women?

I feel the racism displayed by this government for whatever reason is appalling and should not be tolerated.
