A step in the right direction

Canada’s Justice Minister and Attorney General says he is open to a roundtable discussion on the issue of missing and murdered aboriginal women.

The roundtable was originally requested by the country’s Premiers as an alternative to a national inquiry.

Peter MacKay’s office issued a statement last week that didn’t directly address the call for a roundtable, but he said Wednesday his office could participate in some form of roundtable.

I still believe that the federal government should go for a national inquiry, because it would be the most in depth look into the problem facing Canada’s indigenous people.  But that being said, a roundtable discussion is a step in the right direction.
