CBC News — Teresa Robinson death: Apparent mauling death a homicide, RCMP say


University of Winnipeg professor Leah Gazan said the community deserves answers.

"The same level of intensity that's afforded to investigating disappearances of individuals should be afforded to indigenous women and girls," she said. "That is not happening in this city [and] country right now," said Gazan. "I have to question why an 11-year-old child goes missing, and it takes five days for people to start taking intense action."

Gazan, a long-time advocate for murdered and missing indigenous women, said it's not an isolated case, and it happens in many families.

"I think this is another example of the level of inaction that happens around indigenous women and girls go missing in this country," she said.
