More needs to be done by the government to address the ongoing crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in B.C. and the rest of Canada, according to a report released by a human rights group earlier this week.

The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IACHR) have been studying the issue since 2012 when the organization held a hearing on "The Situation of Aboriginal Women and Girls in Canada" at the request of the Native Women's Association of Canada (NWAC) and other feminist groups.

Montreal-based charity fears closure thanks to Harper's crackdown on charities

The foreign-aid work done by a Quebec charity may come to an end after it lost its charitable status due to increased measures by the Harper government to target Canadian charities. If Alternatives shuts down for good, it will be the first charity to close down to these measures.
