Aboriginal men killing Aboriginal women equals protecting Valcourt’s ass

Continuing the questioning of the RCMP/Valcourt statistics on missing and murdered Aboriginal women, Michael provided an article with even clearer analysis which I encourage you to read. It really demonstrates this quote from the article:

“But, let’s not play fools here. Bernard Valcourt needed data to back his claims that we Indigenous men are the real monsters here, especially amid calls for his resignation. He needed to show that it’s not Canada’s problem, it’s an Indian problem. Therefore, a miraculous statistic showed up to back his claims. The nature of how this statistic came to be must be questioned in that RCMP broke protocol to protect the credibility of a politician. That, in and of itself, is an issue that must be questioned and examined to better determine how and where this statistic came from. ”
