NDP Leader Tom Mulcair has unveiled new measures aimed at curbing violence against aboriginal women -- noting that nothing has been done since the tragic death of Tina Fontaine in Winnipeg a year ago highlighted the issue. Campaigning today in Saskatoon, Mulcair said it's time aboriginal women had a prime minister who cares. (Mulcair has repeated his commitment to call an inquiry within his first 100 days in office into missing and murdered aboriginal women. He also vowed to work with women's groups, indigenous peoples, communities and organizations to create a national action plan to end violence against women and girls, with dedicated funding and benchmarks for progress. And he also promised to restore a shelter enhancement program scrapped by the Conservative government.)
