RCMP will 'give careful consideration' to MMIWG recommendations, says commissioner

The head of the RCMP won't commit to the recommendations coming out of the missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls inquiry, which denounced decades of police 'indifference' and called for fundamental policing reforms — but RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki is promising to review the report.

The 1,200 page report, delivered to the federal government in a nearly four-hour ceremony in Gatineau, Que. Monday, included a long list of recommendations for government, lawyers and police to address the levels of violence endured by Indigenous women and girls and 2SLGBTQQIA (two-spirit, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex and asexual) people.

"The RCMP will study the final report and its recommendations, and give careful consideration to changes that strengthen investigations, support survivors and their families, bring stakeholders and partners together, and reduce violence against Indigenous women, girls and the two-spirit-LGBTQ community," said Commissioner Lucki in a statement.
