"In 2014, the nation was rocked by the brutal violence against young Aboriginal women Loretta Saunders, Tina Fontaine and Rinelle Harper. But tragically, they were not the only Aboriginal women to suffer that year. In fact, an official report reveals that since 1980, 1,200 Canadian Aboriginal women have been murdered or have gone missing. This alarming official figure reveals a national tragedy and the systemic failure of law enforcement and of all levels of government to address the issue. Journalist Emmanuelle Walter has spent close to two years investigating one case. Since 2008, two young women, Maisy Odjick and Shannon Alexander, teenagers from Maniwaki, Quebec, have been missing. Emmanuelle Walter pieces together the disappearance and loss of these two young women from the voices of family members and witnesses"--Provided by publisher.

Two of our girls are still missing for nearly a decade ... mind you they disappeared from a rural area with no cameras... & no great effort by both KZ cops or SQ, they were gone nearly a week before "official" interest was taken & then both forces started separate investigations cause one girl was on-reserve & one was off-reserve. Media notification on a Friday late pm & no AMBER ALERT, due to parameters ...

as noted in previous cbc.ca article:

"Odjick was 16 and Alexander was 17 when they were last seen at a bus stop in Maniwaki, about 145 kilometres north of Ottawa, on Sept. 6, 2008. Odjick lived on the Kitigan Zibi Anishnibeg First Nation reserve, while Alexander lived in Maniwaki, just off the reserve."

Maisy Odjick: ( was about to start educational upgrading)

Shannon Alexander: ( previously was army cadet while in Ottawa & was about to start a nursing course)

(SQ has her listed as a "white" person, she's not -she is Algonquin & Inuit, & she was living off-reserve cause not enough housing on-reserve)

(OPP has her listed under missing persons& unidentified bodies unit- file # 20080216 )

I think of & pray for them everyday..
