Conservative MP Bob Zimmer, on MMIW: Get a job & stay on reserve where you belong — Meet the Harper Gang



That comment was met with boos. Zimmer's response? To lecture the
native woman running for the NDP, telling her to 'read the RCMP report'.

Based on the reaction in the room, a careful reading, why were people angry? What did Zimmer say?

  • Get a job
  • Stay on reserve
  • If you leave reserve you will encounter problems, it is your fault
The
MMIW issue is serious, and there are a lot of reasons for it. The
devaluing of native lives, the disrespect for native women (remember
just last year a prosecutor cut out a native woman's vagina and
presented it at a rape trial ... where the accused was acquitted), the
lack of care or concern that police show when dealing with missing
native people ... but one issue that has never been identified was the
free movement of native women in Canada.
