The RCMP acknowledged in 2014 that there have been nearly 1,200 missing and murdered Indigenous women between 1980 and 2012. Indigenous women’s groups, state the number of missing and murdered to be over 4,000. The confusion about the numbers has to do with the under-reporting of violence against Indigenous women and girls As of the 2016 census, Aboriginal peoples in Canada totaled 4.9% of the national population, In the province is Saskatchewan – the only province to have  reviewed its missing persons files for cases involving indigenous women – indigenous women were found to have made up 6% of the province’s population, and 60% of the province’s missing women cases. This episode will be a primer for future missing and murdered indigenous women and girls in Canada.

Halifax Explosion

Halifax was devastated on 6 December 1917 when two ships collided in the city’s harbour, one of them a munitions ship loaded with explosives bound for the battlefields of the First World War. What followed was one of the largest human-made explosions prior to the detonation of the first atomic bombs in 1945. The north end of Halifax was wiped out by the blast and subsequent tsunami. Nearly 2,000 people died, another 9,000 were maimed or blinded, and more than 25,000 were left without adequate shelter.
