Statement by Premier Wade MacLauchlan on the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls
The Province has joined other provinces and territories in calling for this Inquiry and will be seeking an Order-in-Council to support the inquiry’s work on Prince Edward Island," said PEI Premier Wade MacLauchlan.
We are deeply appreciative of the work and partnership of the PEI Aboriginal Women’s Association, the Native Council of PEI, and the Mi’kmaq Confederacy of PEI in bringing these issues forward and calling for an Inquiry," said the Premier, who serves as Minister responsible for Aboriginal Affairs.
I look forward to the commission’s visit to Prince Edward Island, which will provide an opportunity for aboriginal and other Islanders to share their experiences and perspectives, as well as recommendations for removing the systemic causes of violence.
