I would like to offer my condolences to Father Bob Maguire's family and the many other people who loved him. He was a great man with a warm heart who always stood with refugees, despite political attempts to make them invisible. RIP Bob, we always remember you

  The Disappeared: Indigenous Peoples and the international crime of enforced disappearance – Catherine Morrisand Rebekah Smith of Peacemakers Trust Canada conducted extensive research on disproportionate violence against Indigenous persons in Canada that includes uncounted disappearances of Indigenous children, women, and men. Canada’s decades of failure to prevent and halt disappearances forms part of a long litany of grave international human rights violations against Indigenous Peoples. 

Continued reports of officially hushed-up violence lead to increasingly clarion allegations of genocide. The authors’ work on documenting enforced disappearance, failure to investigate and prosecute crimes against indigenous people has parallel application to the habitual failure of U.S. authorities to address crimes perpetrated against Native Americans.
