by Jillian Kestler-D’amours Around the time Tiffany Morrison disappeared, she had started babysitting her older sister Melanie Morrison’s young daughter. “She was coming to the house to help out and hang out. She wanted to be around my daughter because she loved kids,” said Melanie, thinking back. Today, nearly four years after Tiffany went missing, Melanie explained that her daughter still recognizes her aunt in pictures and knows her through the stories told about her. “All of a sudden my daughter will be flipping through the photo album and she’s like, ‘Oh, that’s auntie Tiffany.’ She goes, ‘We’re going to find her, eh? We’re going to bring her home.’ And it just makes you want to cry,” Melanie said, forcing a smile. “Because deep down, I know my daughter is never going to see her again.” Trail running cold Tiffany was last seen leaving the Haraiki Bar in LaSalle, where she had gone to see a band with friends, on June 16, 2006. At the time, the 25-year-old lived on the Kahnawake Mohawk reserve, 20 minutes south west of Montreal, with her mother and young daughter. She reportedly left the bar around midnight in a taxi with a man from the community. After 24 hours had passed with no word from Tiffany, the Morrison family began to worry. “Every time my sister went out, she’d always tell my mother when she was coming home, or where she would be, and if anything changed she’d call to let her daughter know […] and this time, nothing. There was no contact whatsoever,” Melanie said. Ed Stacey, an investigator with the Kahnawake Peacekeepers, was assigned to the case from the very beginning. The main suspect is the man Tiffany left the bar with that night. “[He] has denied police procedures, [like a] polygraph.test,”said Stacey. “He said it wasn’t in [his] beliefs to go through those measures and right now I don’t have enough evidence to get a warrant to make [him] go through the procedures,” Stacey said. The suspect did give a statement to police, saying that he was dropped off first while Tiffany continued on in the cab to her mother’s house. “It’s maybe seven minutes between the two [houses], with the [traffic] lights. It’s not a far distance,” explained Melanie. But since taxi drivers often don’t report the fares going to and from Kahnawake, there is no way to trace which driver or taxi company dropped them off. “If they would have called for a taxi from the bar, then it would have been registered [with the dispatcher]. But that didn’t happen. They waved the cab down off the street,”...

A light meal will be served at 5pm. The Sisters in Spirit initiative of the Native Women’s Association of Canada works to address violence facing Aboriginal women, in particular focusing on the high rates of missing and murdered Indigenous women in Canada. No transportation has been arranged for this event. Missing Justice is a newly formed grassroots collective based in Montreal that works to eliminate the ongoing and increasing threat to the safety of Indigenous women in Canada, and to dispel harmful stereotypes about First Nations People. Since September, five First Nations women have gone missing in Quebec. Missing Justice recognizes that this, and all violence against Indigenous women is a result of systemic oppression of Indigenous peoples by the government, with the compliance of media and police. Some of the collective’s activities include raising awareness, such as an upcoming Montreal-wide poster campaign, research, information-sharing, media campaigns, popular education and direct action.
