Don’t understand some people’s issue with homosexuality. It’s just two people in love. What does it matter if they’re both male or both female?? There is so much hate in the world why create more instead of celebrating the love two people have for each other?

Basically there are thousands of missing or murdered indigenous women in Canada… and calls for an inquiry into the absurdly high number have gone totally unanswered. Actually, worse, they were dismissed and Stephen Harper said, essentially, that it was ‘up to the police’ to find out what happened.
The inquiry would be looking into the police departments across the country to determine why so little is being done specifically on cases involving Native women, when they can find out who killed white people just fine. (There’s really no excuse they can offer up, they just genuinely don’t care about native women).
This is not ‘Native women are being shot in the street’ this is ‘The police and the government do not care about native people and make no effort to find them or their murderers’.
Since the dismissal by Harper over an inquiry the hashtag #mmiw (missing and murdered indigenous women) has been used to refer to this lazy, indifferent and racist attitude by the Canadian government and police departments across the country and to demand inquiries and action into finding these women, their murderers and getting them justice.
