OTTAWA — Members of the global human rights community are reacting to Canada’s national inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women and girls.

Human rights organizations are echoing that Canada’s international reputation could be at stake depending on how the inquiry plays out.

Dozens of organizations – including the United Nations and Human Rights Watch – previously called upon Canada to launch an inquiry into the skewed national statistics of violence toward indigenous women in the country.

Prime Minister of Canada at the time, Stephen Harper, refused to launch an inquiry, telling a CBC reporter it wasn’t high on the radar.
