Open Letter Calling All Provincial Political Leaders for a BC Action Plan on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two Spirit People

BC Civil Liberties Association joins other members of the Coalition on Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls in BC to express grave concern and disappointment that no provincial political party’s released platform includes a plan to implement the Calls for Justice of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls. With less than three weeks until voting day in BC, residents in this province are extremely concerned that the safety and security of Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people is not a priority when it is literally a matter of life and death.

We call on each party to commit to fully implement the recommendations that will bring the human rights crisis of violence against Indigenous women, girls and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people to an end.
