Reconciliation and Response to the MMIWG Inquiry – June 3, 2021

Peter Van Dusen looks at the federal plan to end systemic racism and address violence against Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ individuals – the long-awaited response to the 2019 call for justice from the MMIWG National Inquiry. We hear from Crown-Indigenous Relations Minister Carolyn Bennett and Lynne Groulx, CEO of the Native Women’s Association of Canada.

Also: a closer examination of Indigenous issues and the path to reconciliation with Brad Regehr (president of the Canadian Bar Association and grandson of a residential school survivor) and Mary-Ellen Turpel Lafond (University of British Columbia law professor, former judge, and director of the Residential School History and Dialogue Centre).
