After a year of tragedy, with increasingly high media profile cases of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (including Sagkeeng First Nation teen Tina Fountaine, who was under the care of Child and Family Services in Winnipeg before her death) Stephen Harper flat out said an Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women "... isn't really high on our radar, to be honest" in a Dec 17 year end CBC interview.
This is well after the Provincial Premiers had supported an inquiry, by the way.

While refusing to hold an inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, dismissing the social factors behind the tragedy, the Harper MisGovernment is brazenly challenging the sovereignty of Indigenous Nations in court.
