‘Finally, The Truth…’

“Across Canada, in nearly one-third of all homicide cases in 2014, the accused person was of aboriginal descent, although indigenous people only make up five per cent of the Canadian population, the report shows. The likelihood aboriginal people will be accused of homicide is 10 times greater than for the non-aboriginal population.”ERBLFinallyTheTruth800x800“For the first time, police-reported data includes whether victims and people accused of homicide were aboriginal.  

“Of the 431 people accused of homicide in Canada, 32% were aboriginal — 10 times higher than the rate for non-aboriginals.

“Statistics Canada said it worked with RCMP and other police forces to compile the data. 

    “In response to increasing efforts in Canada to address societal concerns regarding the prevalence of missing and murdered aboriginal girls and women, the policing community has amended their policies which prevented the reporting of aboriginal identity of victims and persons accused of homicide to the ‘Homicide Survey'”, Statistics Canada said in a statement.   

“In 2014, the RCMP released a Canada-wide report on the number of missing and murdered aboriginal women, indicating that 1,181 aboriginal women were victims of homicide between 1980 and 2012.

“The Statistics Canada release Wednesday shows aboriginal men were three times more likely be victims of homicide than aboriginal women. 

    “The reality is the homicide rate for aboriginal men is much higher and has always been much higher”, said Neil Boyd, director of the school of criminology at Simon Fraser University. 

    “There’s a disturbing, unfortunate legacy, and it’s something that we all collectively need to put a good deal of effort into trying to resolve.” 

“It also concludes that the number of aboriginal female homicide victims has remained stable. However, due the decreasing number of non-aboriginal women homicide victims, indigenous women increasingly represent a larger proportion of total female homicide victims. In 1991, aboriginal women accounted for 14% of all all female homicide victims. In 2014, that climbed to 21%.  

“Almost a quarter — 23%  — of all homicide victims in the country were aboriginal, a group that accounted for just five per cent of the population.

“Aboriginal men were seven times more likely to be victims of homicide, and aboriginal women were six times more likely compared with the non-aboriginal population, the report indicates.  
“The homicide rate for aboriginal people in Manitoba is the highest in the country, with 13.3 homicides per 100,000 residents, Statistics Canada reported. The homicide rate last year for aboriginal people in the province was nine times higher than for the non-aboriginal population. 

“Nationally, the homicide rate for aboriginal people was 7.2 victims per 100,000 residents. 

“Across Canada, in nearly one-third of all homicide cases in 2014, the accused person was of aboriginal descent, although indigenous people only make up five per cent of the Canadian population, the report shows. The likelihood aboriginal people will be accused of homicide is 10 times greater than for the non-aboriginal population. 

“How do police determine if a victim or accused is aboriginal or non-aboriginal? 

“Aboriginal identity is determined by police through information found with the victim or accused person, such as status cards, or through information supplied by victims’ or accused persons’ families, the accused persons themselves, community members, or other sources such as band records. 

“Forensic evidence such as genetic testing results may also be an acceptable means of determining the aboriginal identity of victims. 

“Identity reported as “unknown” by police includes instances where police are unable to determine the aboriginal identity of the victim or accused person, where aboriginal identity is not collected by the police service, or where the accused person has refused to disclose their aboriginal identity to police.”  

–‘Manitoba posts highest homicide rate in Canada for 8th consecutive year’,

Jacques Marcoux, CBC News, Nov 25, 2015

The force would not comment specifically on The Globe’s findings, but said serial offenders only rarely target their victims based on race.  

“Typically, these offenders will target victims whom they perceive to be vulnerable and available”, Staff Sergeant Gagnon said, adding that “lifestyle and certain high-risk behaviours” can increase a person’s chances of being victimized.”
