The Chief of the Carrier Sekani Tribal Services says the report from the Missing Women's Inquiry does little to address issues in Northern BC.  Terry Teegee says the report also does not address accountability.

"A lot of families are seeking some accountability for closure, he (Oppal) does impress upon some reparations for most of the families and I think that's what a lot of people are looking for to begin closure," says Teegee.

Teegee says he's pleased the Missing Women's Report does includes the Highway of Tears Report to help address some issues for the North.  Teegee says the systemic bias of RCMP members needs to be addressed in a national inquiry that the CSTC will push for.
