February 12, 2024

THUNDER BAY — The Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Team held a Calls for Justice information sharing event on Feb. 2 at the Intercity Shopping Centre in Thunder Bay. The 231 Calls for Justice were delivered in the Reclaiming Power and Place: The Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls, which is posted online.

“I honour and respect the work you are doing here to bring justice, to bring some respect for us to continue cherishing our Anishinaabekwe across the region of Ontario — it’s important,” says Fort William Councillor Desiree Morriseau-Shields during her opening comments at the Calls for Justice event. “I too get emotional; I have three young girls and I worry. I want all Anishinaabekwe to be cherished just as I cherish my girls, they deserve respect, they deserve justice when respect is not given, and that’s everyone’s job here, everyone who is standing in this room, across Thunder Bay, across Ontario, all of our communities.”
