MMIW inquiry becomes a bureaucratic dumpster fire

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Trudeau’s flagship inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women and girls is turning into a bureaucratic dumpster fire.

A CBC article - credit where it's due- reveals that the inquiry has become a make work project for government bureaucrats and liberal connected cronies who like to eat expensive lunches and travel the country. The inquiry itself has had very little interaction with the families of the missing or the murdered and those wishing to contact the inquiry are finding it nearly impossible to do so, being led down an internet tunnel of dead end phone numbers and email addresses with no people on the other side. 

According to the same CBC article as of March 23, the commission had spent about ten percent of its $53-million budget.  $3.6 million of the $5 million in expenses was spent on administration and travel - but not human beings that answer phones and emails.

Who could have possibly have seen this all coming? Wally Oppal. He is a former BC AG and he was the head of an inquiry into murdered and missing aboriginal women in BC in 2012. When asked about a new federal inquiry Oppal said, “Before we start embarking on a national inquiry, we have to ask ourselves, ‘what will we learn’ from an inquiry – and I don’t think that there’s anything more that we can learn”.

It’s true. We already know a lot about missing and murdered aboriginal women from the Oppal inquiry in BC and comprehensive RCMP reports and statistics. They are, like most female murder victims, meeting their end at the hands of people they know, most often intimate partners.

Those same RCMP statistics show that aboriginal men are more often the targets of violence. In Manitoba, Aboriginal men are 9 times more likely to be murdered than the rest of the population, yet they were excluded from the inquiry altogether. It is only about women and girls.

This whole mess was Trudeau’s feminism colliding with his pandering to aboriginal voters while at the same time not actually caring about aboriginal voters. It has resulted in an expensive mess for all Canadians, rife with wasted time, wasted money and ignored and disappointed families.

90 reserves in Canada have no potable water or are under a boil water advisory.  They can’t just turn on their taps and water comes out. It’s a disgrace. But Trudeau is allowing bureaucrats to wine and dine themselves across the country on the pretense of helping the families of the missing women from those same communities.

I’m shocked that CBC would be upset! Are we to believe that CBC has no idea their own ilk are just in these inquiries for appearance? That’s startling!!

It’s all about optics and votes. Not doing anything meaningful!

When it was pointed out by RCMP criminologists that 75% of the known perpetrators of the MMIW homicides were Aboriginal men, the Chiefs through a fit claiming such statements were “offensive.” Why is it acceptable to categorise victims by race and gender but not perpetrators?
Violent crime affects all Canadians.
The purpose of this Inquiry is to keep the Aboriginal victim narrative alive just as the never-ending residential school farce did before. The Inquiry is also a means to channel millions of dollars toward bolstering the Eco-Aboriginal gendarmerie that stands between Canadians and the natural resources we need to prosper.

Giving the CBC credit for reporting on this predictable result is like giving them credit for reporting there are 26 letters in the alphabet.

No need to make it a point and credit CBC since, what they’re doing is still completely in line with their Leftist bent. Given how much they’ll fawn over the Liberal administration, it’s easy to be fooled into thinking their allegiance lies with the party, when in fact, their true to Leftism.
The shameful performance of the inquiry is just a perfect opportunity for a mainstream media to stand up for ‘The Marginalized’—-thus, aligning themselves with regressives, while, scoring points for the appearance of looking objective by painting the party in poor light.

LOL, as predictable as a photobomb from our Prom Minister.
Amateur hour writ large.

The (non) inquiry is not only a make work project for political drones and librano camp followers, it serves as a front for slush fund skimming – the Librano are back and Canadian government integrity has gone dark again.

I’m in awe at the amount expensed on this theatrical farce – that money would give a number of native communities clean water or a police detachment – but Libranos have their priorities and it is far more important that liberal cronies pad their nest than native’s get some clean water out of the tap.

The last study I saw regarding missing and murdered indigenous women and girls showed a solve rate of 89%. The solve rate for non-indigenous missing and murdered women and girls was 88%. Essentially, for all missing and murdered women and girls regardless of ethnic status the solve rate is the same.

Also, for the most part, the perpetrators are usually immediate family, relatives, or friends. So what exactly will this commission do other than state what is already known and spend $53 million plus the usual cost overrun?

Another of Baby Doc Trudeau’s make work and give money to friends projects. The usual Liberal means of governing.

I also must credit CBC for having integrity once in a rare blue moon.

Well natives, i give you the liberals, they only care about you when it helps them.

Wally Oppal’s words are wise & true, too bad the Liberals didn’t heed them.
Deborah Graupner, well said!

Well you know whats going to happen just before election time, don’t you?
Mohamed bin f*cking asshole Trudeau will find something to report or someway to promise them more money or something so that he can get the aboriginal vote again, the f*cking feminist asshole.
The sad part is that the aboriginals will fall for it and vote for the f*ucker all over again.
I am so sick of this poor excuse for a government and the sick bastard that leads it.

The Indian Affairs bureaucracy is the true example against which other bureaucracies are measured with respect to the definition of a bureaucracy.

“A bureaucracy is an organization that works hard to preserve the problem it was formed to solve.”

Sorry, I cannot remember who originally came up with that definition, but it describes Indian Affairs perfectly, because they have been preserving the problem since 1870.

Thank you, Sheila. That sums things up pretty well. I’m almost ashamed to say I was once a government employee.

Told you so.

They have to keep up the pretense, so that they can continue milking the tax payers for money. With liberals, they are continuously campaigning on the tax payers dime.
commented 2017-05-23 18:13:23 -0400
All sounds so typically Liberal to me … waste a lot of money and accomplish absolutely nothing except to line Liberal crony pockets. I can’t say I am shocked by this news.
