Is this really necessary?

The Canadian government is throwing more money at aboriginals...
Canada intends to fund a $5 million study to combat murder and rape of aboriginal women and help shape laws, police procedures, social services and public education, a native women's group announced on Monday.

More than 500 aboriginal women have disappeared or been killed in the last 20 years. While only three percent of female population in Canada, they represent 29 percent of women inmates in federal prisons, Canadian rights groups estimate.
I don't think we need to spend $5 million to understand what is going on in aboriginal communities. I know that 500 aborginals in 20 years is a tragedy, but it just 25 people per year.

Yet, thousands of males commit suicide every year in Canada. There has yet to be one significant government study on male suicide.
