PRESS RELEASE – President McCallum Addresses Release of MMIWG Report

“Today is a hard day for too many Indigenous families,” said MN-S President Glen McCallum
“Many of us have lost our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends and have demanded our
voices – their voices – be heard. The MMIWG Inquiry and release of the final report gives their
lives and our loss a voice. In saying that, I have spoken with Tammy Mah, President Les Filles
de Madelaine Secretariat, we will take our time to thoroughly review and assess the report
before providing a detailed response.”

“To the families from coast to coast to coast who shared their personal stories and pain, I am
humbled and grateful for your voice. To the families that didn’t feel comfortable sharing, we
are here to lift you up. We also express our gratitude to the staff and the commissioners of the
Inquiry for undertaking the hard and heartbreaking challenge of hearing our stories.”
