Both Harper and NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair were asked Monday about Canada’s 1,200 missing and murdered indigenous women.
Mulcair, speaking in Saskatoon, reiterated that he would call a national inquiry into the crisis within 100 days of forming government. He blamed an underlying “attitude of racism” for the fact that an inquiry hasn’t been called already.
“I say this to every mother, to every daughter, to every sister that it’s time you had a prime minister who cares,” he said.
