False Narrative Major Impediment in Fight to Stop Violence Against Aboriginal Women

Another violent scene plays out in an Aboriginal community in northern Manitoba and main stream media barely yawns. If you search the internet you’ll find most media outlets simply regurgitated the obligatory RCMP media release.  They covered the story in approximately sixty-five (65) words.
