Janice Armstrong, RCMP deputy commissioner, noted in an interview with Reuters that “It is clear that much work remains to be done” in the effort to stop the murders and missing persons’ cases in Canada’s Aboriginal female population. Canada’s former prime minister Stephen Harper stated that the aboriginal call for a national inquiry into the missing and murdered women is unnecessary because the murders are due to crime and not a “sociological phenomenon;” he also stated that the solution rate for the missing women was equal to that of the solution rate for missing non-Aboriginal womens’ cases in Canada. hi
