Tina Fontaine’s family, grief stricken.

It is quite apparent that many people are uncomfortable with speaking up about this serious issue facing Canada. We proudly state what a great country we live in; in fact, this is a great country…but, when we become content, and do not aspire to be better, do not aspire to make this a country in which all of its citizens are equal, are treated with respect…then we are going backwards.
Let’s not hide our heads in the sand; there is a serious epidemic in this country. Young Aboriginal girls and women are going missing and being murdered!!! Something must be done to stop this. The first step is for everyone to start speaking up…so that Aboriginal girls and women have a bright future to look forward to.
