The Canadian Feminist Alliance for International Action is deeply disappointed in the National Action Plan released today by the Government of Canada. We hoped for, and expected to see, a fleshed out plan, with actions, goals, timetables, resources, and responsibilities assigned, that would respond to the urgent nature of the crisis of violence against Indigenous women, girls, and 2SLGBTQQIA+ people. This crisis was identified by the National Inquiry as a key
element of Canada’s slow-moving, decades-long genocide against Indigenous peoples. Instead, two years after the National Inquiry tabled its findings and recommendations, we find expressions of good intent and restatements of some of the National Inquiry’s Calls for Justice, with little more. We are told that we need to wait longer, for an implementation plan.
