Canada for some years have been dealing with a certain phenomenon which implies missing aboriginal women.Canada has pledge to its citizens that many nessesary steps will be taken in order to investigate on missing women.Some people such as James anaya has been taking this penomenon very seriously and is looking at all the cases where aboriginal women are gone missing and trying to solve them.Many families and children are devastated about the lost of a family member and at times most of the cases are not reported or not opened to investagtion.Many aboriginal groups are fighting against the rights they have in Canada and wish they would be taken seriously.An estimated 600 aboriginal women have gone missing over the past 20 years.There are many problems concerning non-aboriginal and aboriginal people since their is a large economic gap between both groups.A professor from a university of Arizona ( studies in human rights) says Canada needs to look more at the needs of aboriginal people to achieve progress.

My opinion from this article is that aboriginal people come to Canada for many reasons.It could be for business opportunity,get together with family or even starting a new life in a new country,Canada accepts many immigrants into its country and what kind of country are we if we cannot even take care or show some concern about our people.It doesnt matter if we are all different ethnicity,we are a family in the end and we must take care of each other. It doesnt matter if its an aboriginal woman or a non-aboriginal woman.When a person is missing it affect many people around that person regardless of their ethnicity therefore i say that government should take care of non-aboriginal woman first but to treat all cases of missing woman equally.We should create mesures to help out people in need and try to help our community inside our community.
