Another call is being made for a national inquiry into missing and murdered Aboriginal women.

The latest call is coming from the Fourth Annual National Aboriginal Women’s Summit in Nova Scotia.

In addition to violence against Aboriginal women and girls, the conference is examining promotion of equity, empowerment and leadership for Indigenous women.

AFN National Women’s Council Co-chair Lorraine Netro says work needs to be done in all of these areas.

“We don’t see ourselves as equals within our respective regions,” she says.

Netro says the conference is an important opportunity to come together, look at the work that has been done to date and commit to action in specific areas for the future.

“And when we are talking about leadership we need to promote our First Nations women to run for elected positions in our many levels of government.”

Netro traveled from the Yukon to attend the national summit.

The three-day conference wraps up tomorrow.

Waste Reduction Week is reminding everyone to reduce, reuse and recycle.

The event is organized by the Saskatchewan Waste Reduction Council.

Council spokesperson Joanne Fedyk says “reduce” may be the most important part of recycling.

“The more you can reduce the materials you are using or the more you can reduce buying something, the less you have to recycle later,” she says.

Fedyk says there are more plans to begin recycling food and yard materials in the future.

She also says pilot projects are in place to bring more recycling programs to Saskatchewan’s remote communities in the north.

“These programs are definitely on the list. There are currently a few pilot programs going on as well. This week presents a good reminder of the need to reduce, reuse and recycle waste as we aim to make every week a waste reduction week in Saskatchewan.”
