Earlier this afternoon, the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry, led by former BC Attorney General Wally Oppal, released its report, Forsaken.

The report includes four volumes:

I.     The Women, their Lives and the Framework of Inquiry: Setting the Context for Understanding and Change

II.   Nobodies: How and Why We Failed the Missing and Murdered Women

III. Gone, but Not Forgotten: Building the Women’s Legacy of Safety Together

IV.  The Commission’s Process

The 1,448-page report also includes a 180-page executive summary.

The Commission of Inquiry has produced a lengthy report that merits thorough consideration and attention.

In the coming days, the media will provide immediate reaction to the report that will prompt an important and long-overdue conversation on missing women.

When the Senate resumes sitting in the New Year, I will speak on this report, and share more detailed reflections on its findings and recommendations.
