Carolyn Bennett, a Minister of the Crown in Justin Trudeau’s government, is accusing police across Canada of covering up murder.
As Minister of Indigenous Affairs, Bennett is anxious to deliver on the Liberals’ promise to hold an inquiry into missing and murdered aboriginal women but nothing can excuse the inflammatory rhetoric she has used when speaking to media.
Before an inquiry has been held and information presented, she is already accusing police across Canada of covering up murders as a way to explain the difference in the numbers of victims involved.
Does she really believe that police would deliberately characterize obvious suicides as murders? If so, why?
The media should push her on this rather than allowing her to make such outrageous accusations.
Bennett is yet another activist at heart in this government that has proven herself to lack the impartiality required to sit in a position of power.
She should be forced to resign.
