Justin Trudeau: gender equality is under attack

Justin Trudeau: gender equality is under attack

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Tuesday in Vancouver that the government is working on a national action plan in response to the inquiry's final report and it will be ready in "the coming months".

Almagro was responding to a Canadian public inquiry report issued Monday that said the problem is so serious it amounts to "genocide".

Al Jazeera's Shihab Rattansi reports from Ottawa.

The report has numerous recommendations aimed at Canadian officials.

"There has been a direct attack on Indigenous women in Canada", she said.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced today that Canada would invest in a ten-year commitment to reach $1.4-billion in annual funding to support women's health initiatives, beginning in 2023.

The inquiry's interim report, released in November 2017, called on the federal government to work with the provinces and territories to create a national police task force where families and survivors could seek to reopen cases or review investigations.

The inquiry into the missing and murdered women was a painful process that heard testimony from thousands of witnesses, including hundreds of family members of victims.

"We can not pretend to be a country that cares about human rights, that has a positive impact on the world, if we do not end this situation once and for all", Trudeau said.

"Listening is not action", she said.

It was not clear if Kim Yong Chol , a former spymaster, had earlier been sent to a camp and later released. The reported executions and purge, which the newspaper claimed were in response to February's failed U.S.

Bentham said the ongoing disappearance and murder of women and girls since the inquiry's start three years ago is evidence that Canada is ignoring the genocide against Indigenous women, girls and two-spirit people.

She adds the report - with more than 200 recommendations for multiple levels of government - also calls for a complete overhaul of the status quo, including ensuring Indigenous women are afforded the human rights protections available to all Canadians.

"I hope that knowing these truths will contribute to a better understanding of the real lives of Indigenous people and the violations of their human and Indigenous rights when they were targeted for violence", Buller writes in the report.

Geraldine Gauthier clutched a picture of her sister, Lynn, as she heard from the federally funded commission tasked with documenting the causes of violence against Indigenous women and girls.

Conservative Indigenous-affairs critic Cathy McLeod said the discussion around the term was a distraction from the value of the report's findings and would not say whether she agreed with the use of the word.

"MKO will to work to implement recommendations but I also call on all other levels of government to do what they can", said Settee, noting a need for sustainable, long-term funding.

According to official estimates, nearly 1,200 indigenous women and girls went missing or were killed between 1980 and 2012, out of a community of 1.6 million people.

The report cited abuses such as forcing indigenous children to attend government run residential schools, and police and justice system failure to address the concerns of indigenous women, according to the Times. In 2014, the RCMP released a national overview and pegged the number of cases from between 1980 and 2012 at almost 1,200.

"Women are still going missing and being murdered at a high rate", Williams said.
