Another top position for diseased New Zealand

Posted by te2ataria on June 15, 2019

New Zealand already boasts the world’s highest rates of:

SPECIAL CATEGORIES: 

1. Tourist Deaths. More visitors are murdered, killed or otherwise lose their lives while in New Zealand than in any other country in the world. [In fact, tourists deaths in NZ could by higher than the   combined total in the rest of the world.]

2. Sex and Labor Slaves. New Zealand hosts as many as ¼ million sex and labor slaves, by far the highest in the OECD countries 

  • One in 10 sex slaves worldwide work in New Zealand [and Australia,]  or in ‘prison-brothels’ on various pacific Islands owned/protected by New Zealand [and Australia.]
  • Nearly every single kiwi fruit, apple, tomato…  produced in New Zealand is picked by a labor slave

3. Male Rape. New Zealand male rape and sexual abuse rates are highest in the world

The Formal List

  1. Child maltreatment deaths
  2. Crime Rates – Serious crime is impacting about 800,000 kiwis each year (NZ pop. is only 4.3 million – 2009 stats)
  3. Rape victims (less than 8 per cent of all sexual offenses were reported to, or registered by the police, with a conviction rate of 13 per cent. In other words, for every 100 rape cases only one case ends in conviction.)
  4. Suicide rates
  5. Pedophilia
  6. Teenage pregnancy
  7. Cannabis and methamphetamine use [every kiwi is high on something]
  8. Property crime victims
  9. Assault victims
  10. Motor Vehicle Deaths
  11. Single parent families
  12. Imprisonment in the Western World
  13. Crime victims
  14. Asthma prevalence
  15. McDonald’s restaurants per capita
  16. Obesity in the OECD
  17. Adults prosecuted per capita
  18. School dropouts
  19. Melanoma
  20. Food poisoning cases

[Note: In some lists kiwis occupy the 2nd or 3rd highest position in a few of the above-listed categories.]

And one of the categories that doesn’t exist officially:

21. The most spied on group of people in the world.

Globally, kiwis are the most spied on group of people [‘nation’] by their own ‘government’ (Brits share the spot jointly; Americans NOT far behind.)

And here’s some more

22. New Zealand has the highest number of driveway deaths [toddler-killing] in the OECD.

23.  New Zealand women have the highest numbers of sexual partners in the world. They sleep with  an average of 20.4 sexual partners, condom-maker Durex said. [The global average is 7.3.] New Zealand women also came top as the only female group more promiscuous than their men, who averaged 16.8 sexual partners.

24. Child Abuse: The statistics cited below are just the tip of the iceberg!

Child, Youth and Family agency, substantiated cases 2010-2011

  • 12,595 emotional abuse
  • 3,225 physical abuse
  • 1,505 sexual abuse
  • 4,762 neglect

AND NOW…

New Zealand has the world’s highest reported incidents of Legionnaires’ disease –Research

“NZ the Legionnaires’ capital of the world, study finds”

“New Zealand has the highest reported incidence of Legionnaires’ disease in the world, a new study has found.”

“This research shows the incidence of Legionnaires’ disease in New Zealand is much higher than previously identified,” the lead researcher, Professor David Murdoch said.

Some 238 cases – 5.4 cases for every 100,000 Kiwis – were identified between May 2015 and May 2016, the report said.

Legionnaires is a severe form of pneumonia which frequently goes “undetected because of inconsistent use of diagnostic testing and the uncertainty about whom to test.”

“In 63 percent of patients studied, it was caused by bacteria called Legionella longbeachae, commonly found in soil and compost.”

“In 22 percent of cases, it was caused Legionella pneumophila, found in lakes, streams and artificial water systems such as plumbing networks – particularly in pipes.”

Read more…

“Legionella pnuemophila can grow and spread in artificial water systems, meaning people can contract the disease by breathing in small droplets of water containing the bacteria,” a report said.

“But there’s nothing in the building code that requires it,” Master Plumbers chief executive Greg Wallace said.

Police forced to rearrange crime scene after each fatal crash involving military vehicles

Posted by te2ataria on June 14, 2019

One [military] vehicle missing from police “CORRECTION”

Initially, police reported a serious crash involving three vehicles in Waiouru Military Area, Ruapehu District:

.
Soon, the report was upgraded to a fatal crash [still involving three vehicles] in an update:

.
Then, they’re forced to CORRECT their report, removing a third [military] vehicle from the crime scene:

The pattern has been repeated previously including:

The Final Destination: Three More Chinese Tourists Killed in NZ Named Posted on March 17, 2019

Tekapo “triple” fatal crash – name release

Three of the Chinese nationals were killed in a crash involving multiple vehicles on Braemar Road, Tekapo, on Friday March 8 have been named by police.

They were Yuyan Li of Sichuan, China, Fuhe Li of Chongqing, China and Jin Zhang of Chongqing, China, police said.

In an update posted on police website less than an hour after the initial report, two of the victims had disappeared without a trace.

Two NZDF personnel killed/injured in Tekapo crash removed from the scene, omitted from police report

Triple tourist fatalities may have been caused by NZDF personnel, who’re conveniently missing from police report

At least three Chinese tourists were killed in a horrific head-on crash in Tekapo, South Canterbury, described by someone at the scene as “catastrophic”. Another “witness” called the road kills as “sickening”.

“A Defence Force spokesperson said while NZDF personnel were not involved in the accident, one of its Range Wardens provided assistance in his capacity as a volunteer fire fighter,” a report  quoted police as saying.

Police have not issued an update on the fates of the remaining five – by their count – victims.

Three of “five” other victims were in a serious condition, Stuff reported.

Mystery of the double-cab truck

Tekapo car crash that killed [at least] three Chinese tourists and injured five others has been described as a ‘sickening’ mess, Stuff reported earlier.

“It was a head-on between some tourists and a logging crew … a double-cab sort of thing.”

However, the role of a double-cab truck in the crash is becoming increasingly unclear!

Police report:

Another Crash Reported on the Twizel-Tekapo Rd.

Today’s police question:

Why is it whenever police allege “fleeing drivers” rammed their vehicles, it’s invariably the rear of the pursued cars and the front of the police vehicles that are damaged?

‘Three patrol cars rammed following three separate police pursuits in Christchurch’
“Three people have been arrested and another person is on the run following three separate police chases in Christchurch overnight. In all three chases, a police car was rammed. ” https://stuff.co.nz/national/crime/113481166/three-patrol-cars-rammed-following-three-separate-police-pursuits-in-christchurch

The Final Destination: British male and a young Danish man killed in NZ

Posted by te2ataria on June 12, 2019

W A R N I N G!
DO NOT VISIT DEADLY RACIST NZ
WITHOUT A WATERTIGHT TRAVEL DEATH INSURANCE!
.

Transporting your body back to your country would cost about $20,000money your family have to find quickly.


Welcome to the World’s Deadliest Tourist Attraction —
The Final Destination

ONLY Death is Democratic in NZ

At least 5,000 foreigners—overseas visitors international students, foreign workers and new immigrants from more than 60 countries—have been killed/murdered and 30,000 others seriously injured in New Zealand since January 2000. At least 98 percent of the casualties would’ve been avoidable, if the ultra-racist, white supremacist NZ gave a f*ck. [Updated January 2019]

Three foreigners are being killed/murdered in New Zealand on average every four days.

We’re an alethophobic nation of cheats, liars, fraudsters . . . [and many rapists and murderers, too!] If you want to know who or what we’re really like, watch the movie Jamaica Inn. We’re the shipwreckers!

NZ government (police and Ministry of Resurrection) under-report road fatalities and murders in the same way Puerto Rican officials (US Govt) misled the world following Hurricane Maria. Death toll from the deadly storm was reported at only 64, instead of the scientifically researched total of at least 2,975.

In NZ, about two-thirds of road fatalities go unreported, or unrecorded to protect the cutthroat tourism and banking.! [See blog entries under Ministry of Resurrection.]

Body of missing tramper Darren Myers found in Tararua Range

The body of British hiker Darren Myers, 49, has been found, almost two weeks after he went missing in the Tararua Range, a report said.

The body was “found at the bottom of a waterfall in “hazardous” terrain, after an eleven day search hampered by bad weather,” the report said.

“The body was located via an aerial search this morning and search and rescue teams are on their way to the site,” police said.

Police were cruelly creating false hope for the Myers family as late as yesterday:

“If Darren Myers has been able to make good decisions and his equipment has stood up to the conditions then Police believe there may be a chance he is alive,” police said.

Danish visitor reached his Final Destination

Name release – missing Danish man found dead in Karangarua Valley, South Westland

NZ Security Agencies: Treason-R-Us

Posted by te2ataria on June 11, 2019

From the Bombing of Rainbow Warrior to Terror Attacks on Christchurch Mosques:

When was the last time the white supremacist members of NZ’s security elite protected the people?

“New Zealand is fortunate that terrorism represents more a latent threat than a lived reality.” –Professor Andrew Geddis of Otago University’s Law School

FACTS:

U.S. sees 300 violent attacks inspired by far right every year
https://www.pbs.org/newshour/show/u-s-sees-300-violent-attacks-inspired-far-right-every-year

Study [published in 2015] Says White Extremists Have Killed More Americans in the U.S. Than Jihadists Since 9/11
Since 9/11, white right-wing terrorists have killed almost twice as many Americans in homegrown attacks than radical Islamists have [48 to 26,] according to research by the New America Foundation. {posted June 25, 2015 }
http://time.com/3934980/right-wing-extremists-white-terrorism-islamist-jihadi-dangerous/

White American men are a bigger domestic terrorist threat than Muslim foreigners
Since Trump took office, more Americans have been killed by white American men with no connection to Islam than by Muslim terrorists or foreigners.
https://www.vox.com/world/2017/10/2/16396612/las-vegas-mass-shooting-terrorism-islam

Trump’s fixation on demonizing Islam hides true homegrown US terror threat https://www.revealnews.org/article/home-is-where-the-hate-is/

Far-right extremists being funded by international networks

“Far-right extremists are building international funding networks allowing them to spread hatred while being ‘overlooked’ by authorities, new research has warned.”

“Analysts at the Royal United Services Institute (Rusi) found that despite an increase in extreme right-wing attacks, efforts to disrupt terrorist financing was still focused on Islamists.”
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/far-right-extremism-terrorism-tommy-robinson-funding-international-a8937116.html

The Israel Factor

“[Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, aka Tommy Robinson] was also a beneficiary of a ‘fellowship’ from [the Israel first] US tech billionaire Robert Shillman that bolstered his salary from Canadian website Rebel Media, where he worked from early 2017 until February last year.

Ezra Levant, founder of the Rebel [and a Israel first operative in Canada,] has been covering Robinson’s ongoing legal case and crowdfunding for activists to travel to Britain to counter ‘mainstream media’ reporting.”

“Robinson has also sought funding from Israeli backers and visited the country.

“In a leaked video where he boasted about scoring drugs, Robinson claimed to have spoken to Benjamin Netanyahu, adding: ‘I got my Zionist card out and said I am a Zionist and I bought us everything. Shalom motherf***er.’”

Earlier this month, he posted a photo on his Telegram channel wearing a hat emblazoned with the Israeli flag with the caption: “I need your shekels.”
https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/far-right-extremism-terrorism-tommy-robinson-funding-international-a8937116.html

Yet…

“There is not one specific mention of the threat posed by white supremacists or right-wing nationalism in 10 years of public documents from the Security Intelligence Service or the GCSB.”
https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/political/385173/no-mention-of-right-wing-extremist-threats-in-10-years-of-gcsb-and-sis-public-docs

The ability to hold two conflicting ideas in your head

“We like to think we have a counter-terrorism means, the ability to respond to something. But we don’t have a strategy that anticipates and prevents or seeks prevention of a terrorist act happening,” admitted Andrew Little, the minister responsible for New Zealand’s spy agencies.

The state of affair is “surprising,” he says, yet he maintains the country’s intelligence systems are effective. [If you find it hard to believe him, ask the Muslim community in NZ.]

F Scott Fitzgerald once observed, “the test of a first-rate intelligence is the ability to hold two opposed ideas in mind at the same time and still retain the ability to function.” By this measure, the minister’s reaction comes from a first-rate mind!!!

NZ academics part of the problem, not part of the solution!

It’s true that NZ academics are unaware the decisions on terrorism and the “preferred” terrorists are all made in Tel Aviv. And that’s why the focus has not, until recently, shifted from the so-called jihadists to the extreme right and white supremacists. But their phenomenal ignorance of the terrorism issues and choice of terrorists make them a part of the problem, not part of the solution!

 

“New Zealand is fortunate that terrorism represents more a latent threat than a lived reality,” Professor Andrew Geddis of Otago University’s Law School declared.

“Otago law professor Andrew Geddis wishes the words he wrote in a chapter in a book on extremism just before 15 March were still true.

“The pages being printed the week of the shootings… There was no time to change it.”

TERROR WARNING: UK terrorist-in-waiting could be the next mass murderer!

Posted by te2ataria on June 8, 2019

When will the deranged terrorist-in-waiting who sent a veiled death threat to blog moderators carry out the next mass murder somewhere in the UK, NZ, Australia… ?

The latest veiled death threat comes from the UK:

“Maybe [the blog moderators] will die in some horrible accident like the other foreigners did !😂😂”

The veiled death threat arrived overnight via Vodafone, apparently from the UK.

The threat makes reference to the Christchurch terror attacks that saw at least 51 “foreigners” murdered and as many victims maimed/ injured.

The deranged terrorist-in-waiting uses the name “Simon Greenwood”, which is most probably not his real name.

The syntax and wording of the death threat suggest the aspiring terrorist is a non-native English speaker. He appears to be an intellectually and emotionally challenged individual, with significant mental disabilities that have led to his psychopathic behaviour.

The veiled death threat:

Simon Greenwood
Simongreenwood75@gmail.com
148.252.128.50
This website is hilarious.
Can’t even spell Zealand ! Love it
Very keen to know the name of the owner of the website.
Maybe he/ she will die in some horrible accident like
the other foreigners did ! 😂😂

.

When will the deranged terrorist-in-waiting carry out the next mass murder somewhere in the UK, NZ, Australia…?

We’ll see!

UPDATE — FASCISM RISING IN NEW ZEALAND

Posted by te2ataria on June 7, 2019

On June 6 the Blog posted a comment and question sent by a reader in Europe:

75 years ago my family lost four of its sons, brothers… in D-Day landings “to defeat fascism”

Today, NZ media pander to fascism by way of self censorship!

A message to the editor and board of directors at NZ Herald:

WHY did you remove columnist Matt McCarten’s article (linked below) from NZ Herald archive?

“Forget terrorists – it’s the secret police the public needs to fear”  [http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/1/story.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10471106&pnum=0]

The blog Moderators searched the NZ Herald archive, which included numerous entries by  McCarten, looking for the missing article. No trace found among the 703 articles listed on 71 pages that were written by, attributed or made a reference to the columnist! [https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nzh-search/NZH/Matt+McCarten/71/]

Using various search terms, the blog Moderators searched for the missing article on six different search engines. Several references to the article were found, but non showed up on NZ Herald website.

On June 7, we repeated the same searches. Lo and behold, the article, or a variation thereof, which clearly wasn’t there a day earlier, showed on google search engine with the following, slightly modified URL:

Matt McCarten: Forget terrorists – it’s the secret police the public needs to fear

20 Oct, 2007 6:01pm

Matt McCarten, NZ Herald columnist: “Forget terrorists – it’s the secret police the public needs to fear” [Image may be subject to copyright.]

Key Points:

Our Secret Intelligence Service (SIS) and our nation’s senior police officers breathlessly informed us this week that a terrorist cell and their secret training camp in the Ureweras had been smashed.

Hundreds of police synchronised the storming of homes of Maori sovereignty supporters, anarchist revolutionaries and environmental activists, arresting 17 so-called terrorists. Apparently, police have been hiding out in the bushes photographing these individuals, some of whom were dressed up in military gear, shooting guns and even burning napalm.

Our secret police and political establishment must be wetting themselves with excitement at finally capturing “real terrorists”. The only problem is that New Zealand is such a small country, everybody knows everybody else. Do people really think Tame Iti is a New Zealand Osama Bin Laden? What a joke. Instead of using scores of Darth Vader stormtroopers, couldn’t they have just sent the local community constable to arrest Iti? It’s not like he’s ever resisted arrest before.

Iti is one of those characters whose sense of humour and mischief has entertained us for years. He has always been a colourful orator and at worst makes us face some unpalatable truths. At best he is a great entertainer.

Iti winds up the establishment to draw attention to political issues or, as some of his detractors would claim, to himself. His latest political stunts have included running around half naked in front of the Waitangi Tribunal and shooting a British flag on the ground. The local police know him so well that they didn’t even bother to tell him off.

It wasn’t until this incident was broadcast on TV that our political masters insisted that he be charged. The subsequent court case just turned into another case of political mischief and self-promotion which would have had him chuckling at the furore.

The young idealists arrested with him were traipsing around his bush camp. No doubt they were firing guns and if the police say they set off napalm, I’m inclined to believe them. But does this mean that an eclectic group of Maori, political and environmental activists were being turned into a terrorist army?

Some of the young people I know who were arrested are actually vegans who don’t even believe in killing animals, let alone human beings. When you get the police searching homes of environmental activists trying to save snails on the West Coast, you know that things have got really silly.

There’s been a lot of talk this week about politicians overreacting about the police actions, but I suggest that the overreaction has been on the side of the police.

I never thought that there was a need for the Terrorism Suppression Act and believe that it was motivated by our establishment’s need to be seen by our international allies to be doing our bit for George Bush’s “war on terror”.

This week, New Zealand proudly signed up to become part of the US database of suspected terrorists. I would have thought that after the Ahmed Zaoui debacle, our secret police would hesitate to take the word of overseas agencies.

Let’s not even mention the bogus intelligence from these same guys to justify the invasion of Iraq for their oil.

Sinisterly, the Suppression of Terrorism Act is currently under review and there’s a proposal to include as terrorists people who damage economic infrastructure.

That is so broad it could include anything. For example, during the Springbok tour, people destroyed television aerials which were transmitting the rugby game. Under these new recommendations, they would be charged as terrorists.

The current young activists held without bail can stay in jail for up to two years without being convicted. The information that I have received is that the police have transcripts of all their phone calls and texts as well as all their personal emails. That can only mean that our citizens are being widely electronically monitored.

Considering it was the SIS who briefed the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition, one can only assume now that our secret police routinely spy on our citizens.

What is disturbing is that many of these people’s friends, work colleagues and family are having their homes raided and their property confiscated. I suspect this is more to do with spreading the net as wide and far as possible to see what comes up.

My opponents may accuse me of being pro-terrorist or at least an apologist for them: I am not. What I don’t like, however, is the sinister way in which the Suppression of Terrorism Act is being used against people engaged in domestic political activity.

People have always talked about overthrowing the government, smashing capitalism, wrecking animal-testing laboratories and other such things. But have we had such acts carried out in New Zealand? Very rarely and very minor.

And even when people damage property or even hurt individuals in political activity the police have always been able to arrest them using the Crimes Act. The Suppression of Terrorism Act – even its name is provocative – is a political weapon against dissent.

Those of us opposed to this act are now seeing it abused in the way we feared it might. We shouldn’t be worrying about the antics of Tame Iti. We should be instead very worried about the creeping powers of our secret police.

FASCISM RISING IN AUSTRALIA

Australian Gestapo raid News Corp journalist Annika Smethurst’s home over alleged national security leak

Then…

They raid ABC’s Sydney headquarters…

Police have raided the Canberra home of a News Corp journalist after she reported that the Federal Government was considering spying on Australians, a report said.


Annika Smethurst reported earlier this year that government agencies were considering spying on Australians.
Related Story: Security leak about spy agency referred to AFP

According to The Daily Telegraph, the raid related to a story published in April last year in which Annika Smethurst reported that the Home Affairs and Defence departments were considering giving spy agencies greater surveillance powers.

“This raid demonstrates a dangerous act of intimidation towards those committed to telling uncomfortable truths,” a News Corp spokesperson said.

“The raid was outrageous and heavy-handed.”

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) confirmed the raid took place earlier on Tuesday amid an investigation into leaked information.

“The matter relates to an investigation into the alleged unauthorised disclosure of national security information that was referred to the AFP,” the AFP said in a statement.

“This warrant relates to the alleged publishing of information classified as an official secret, which is an extremely serious matter that has the potential to undermine Australia’s national security.

“No arrests are expected today as a result of this activity.”  Read more…

The stories, by ABC investigative journalists Dan Oakes and Sam Clark, revealed allegations of unlawful killings and misconduct by Australian special forces in Afghanistan and were based off hundreds of pages of secret Defence documents leaked to the ABC.

Canada ‘complicit in race-based genocide’ of indigenous women –Report

Posted by te2ataria on June 4, 2019

Sent by a reader in Disaster Zone Zero

Unlike NZ, Canada is showing a glimpse of moral courage!

Canada complicit in a “race-based genocide” against indigenous women –government inquiry

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-48503545

The report cited research finding indigenous women were 12 times more likely to be killed or to disappear than other women in Canada.

The inquiry blamed the crisis on deep-rooted colonialism and state inaction.

Among more than 200 recommendations is a call for all Canadians to help end violence, including by learning indigenous history.

The 1,200-page document released Monday is the culmination of almost three years of hearings and research by the inquiry into disproportionate violence faced by indigenous women and girls in Canada.

“Despite their different circumstances and backgrounds, all of the missing and murdered are connected by economic, social, and political marginalisation, racism and misogyny woven into the fabric of Canadian society,” said Marion Buller, chief commissioner of the inquiry.

It cost C$92m ($67m; £53m), and heard from more than 2,000 witnesses since 2017 – including survivors of violence and family members.

What’s the background?

Mr Trudeau’s government launched the national inquiry in September 2016, after years of calls for one by indigenous and international organisations.

Notable cases of missing or murdered indigenous women and girls had fuelled the call for a national inquiry, including the Vancouver murders by Robert Pickton, and the death of schoolgirl Tina Fontaine.

In 2015, a landmark Truth and Reconciliation report into the legacy of residential schools in Canada issued a damning verdict – that the policy amounted to “cultural genocide”.

Monday’s document takes that finding a step further saying that the murder and disappearance indigenous women and girls over the past few decades has amounted to a “race-based genocide of indigenous peoples”.

How was Canada found to be complicit?

The report found that “persistent and deliberate human and indigenous rights violations and abuses are the root cause behind Canada’s staggering rates of violence”.

Past inquiries and investigations in Canada – from the 1996 Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples to the more recent Truth and Reconciliation report – have put forward about 900 wide-ranging recommendations to deal with many of the underlying issues.

Victims’ voices finally heard

By Jessica Murphy, BBC News in Ottawa

The document released by the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls is dense, at well over 1,000 pages.

But – as is often the case – it’s the personal stories that cut through the formal language.

The voices of some of the families were included in the report, bringing emotional weight to the two phone directory-sized volumes.

“Tamara Lynn Chipman stole her daddy’s heart from the moment she was born,” begins a foreword by Gladys Radek.

“She grew into a tall, lanky, charming, beautiful young lady with a smile that would brighten anybody’s day.”

Tamara vanished on 21 September, 2005, along the Highway of Tears in the province of British Columbia, a route notorious for the number of women who have gone missing or died along its 724 km (450 miles).

Or the words of Jeremiah Bosse – widower of Daleen Bossee – who admits to early doubts about the inquiry: “Will this actually work or help?”

He writes: “Today I feel hopeful for the first time that as victims of violence our words will be heard. The words of our loved ones are spoken.”

What’s the reaction?

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau – who has made reconciliation with indigenous peoples a priority for his government – thanked those that shared stories with the commission, and vowed to enact the inquiry’s recommendations.

“This is an uncomfortable day for Canada, but it is an essential day,” he said.

Mr Trudeau did not mention genocide in his speech – a fact that was not lost on Michèle Audette, one of the report’s commissioners.

“I was hoping that he would have that courage,” she said during a press conference.

Today was a long time coming for many victims and their family.

“This journey has been emotional but also uplifting, because I’ve been able to share this day with all these families,” Shelia LeDoux told the BBC.

Her niece went missing in 1992, but her remains were not found until four years later.

“Her voice is silent but I feel like I’m her voice, and I feel like I’ve carried forward with what I’ve promised.”

Barbara Sevigny, whose sister was murdered 33 years ago, said today validated the pain she and her family have experienced.

“Our lives matter too. That became very real,” she told the BBC, her voice cracking.

She said she is has been disillusioned by broken promises in the past, and is waiting to see what steps the government will take.

What does the report recommend?

The chief commissioner said that nothing short of a “paradigm shift” is necessary to dismantle colonialism in Canadian society.

Ms Buller urged Canadians: “Read the report, speak out against sexism, racism, and misogyny. Hold government to account and decolonise yourself by learning about indigenous people and the true history of Canada.”

The inquiry called on the federal government to create an independent mechanism for reporting annually on how the recommendations are being implemented.

Other recommendations include:

  • Develop a national action plan to tackle violence against indigenous women and girls and ensure equitable access to public services
  • Establish a National Indigenous and Human Rights Ombudsperson
  • For governments to recognise and protect indigenous language rights and give them official language status
  • For all levels of government to ensure support for programmes and services for indigenous women and girls in the sex industry
