Massey Whiteknife is a millionaire business leader, and a celebrated and accomplished performer, Iceis Rain. As a child in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Massey was preyed upon, and an attack that he endured as a teenage boy nearly left him dead. Massey shares his story to inspire those in danger to watch for warning signs; and to remind families to stay connected to their loved ones to help them feel cherished and safe. Massey is a powerful advocate for the LGBTQ2s* community and shares his experiences to offer strength and hope for kids who are just like he was.

More than twenty years ago, 17-year-old Jennifer Lee Flett was walking home from an after-school program in Winnipeg, Manitoba, when a white car driven by a white man pulled up beside her and offered her a ride. Jennifer declined and kept walking. When the man persisted, Jennifer thought he would leave her alone if she just got in the car and let him drive her home – a short distance away. Instead, the man abducted Jennifer and kept her captive for an ordeal that lasted hours. Jennifer was able to escape using her wits, and wants to encourage others to trust their instincts, and not fall prey to victim’s guilt.

As a child, Jessica grew up around gangs and drugs, and was used as collateral on many occasions. She was incarcerated at a young age, and there found a connection in a friend who told her about someone who could help her when she got out. Jessica connected with the man in Toronto, thus beginning an ordeal of being trafficked, and being subjected to violence that would last years. Now Jessica is a leading anti-trafficking advocate who shares her story to help others know they are not alone, and there is a way out. Jessica also educates the public on trafficking and is sparking conversation across the country.

Tia was a young student in Regina, Saskatchewan when she took a taxi ride that would change her life. The driver abducted Tia, forced her to drink, and after assaulting her, gave her his card and told her he would pay her for pictures, and that he, “does this all the time.” Tia was forced to face two more experiences of violence while the court case was in process for the first incident – including one in which Tia killed her attacker in self-defense. Tia courageously shares her harrowing story as a beacon of hope for anyone who has ever faced life-changing acts of violence with resilience.

The primary data source used to create this interactive infographic is Dr. Maryanne Pearce’s, H.B.A., M.A, doctoral thesis An Awkward Silence: Missing and Murdered Vulnerable Women in Canada and the Canadian Justice System, which includes a database of missing and murdered women and girls in Canada. The database has been updated continually (July 5, 2016), and has been used by CBC for their special series on Indigenous women and girls, the Globe and Mail, and APTN, as well as the RCMP, provincial/territorial governments, non-governmental organizations and grassroots groups across the country.
The data was interpreted by Dr. Tracey Peter, an Associate Professor and Associate Head in the Department of Sociology at the University of Manitoba. Dr. Peter helped transform the data into an odds ratio – a ratio that represents the odds an outcome will occur given a particular exposure, compared to the odds of the outcome occurring in the absence of that exposure.
To create the odds ratio she combined Dr. Maryanne Pearce’s data with Statistics Canada 2011 National Household Survey and newethncity/nnnewstatus variables. All data was then filtered by the last 10 years of murdered or missing women. She recommended focussing analysis on the last 10 years because the population data is based on 2011 (approximately 5 years before and after that date), but to go back further would be difficult since there are more widespread population changes. Finally, the per capita representation was determined allowing for a fair 1:1 comparison between each ethnic group.
Dr. Tracey Peter is an Associate Professor and Associate Head in the Department of Sociology at the University of Manitoba. Her general research and publication interests include: research methods/applied statistics, mental health and well-being, issues of homophobia and transphobia /LGBTQ-inclusive education, trauma and violence, suicide prevention, and social inequality and marginalization.
