Canadians took to social media this week to share their outrage about the lack of action from police and government on the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women in the wake of a CBC News investigation into 230 unsolved cases.

Many demanded a federal inquiry into the issue (which the PM has said isn't going to happen)


 

There were calls from Liberals and New Democrats for more action


 

And outrage at the RCMP for announcing that seven out of 10 murders of aboriginal women are committed by aboriginal offenders


 

Many criticized Aboriginal Affairs Minister Bernard Valcourt for originally citing the statistic


 

While others took on PM Stephen Harper


 

Some noted that addressing domestic violence will be a key part of solving the problem


 

And that every missing person deserves an investigation


 

Many were overcome by emotion


 

And thanked the CBC
