The report about Tina Fontaine’s case will be made public on March, 12

In August 2014, Tina Fontaine’s body was found in the Red River in August 2014.

Manitoba's Advocate for Children and Youth Daphne Penrose is going to give publicity to the report on how the provincial government has been involved in the case during the past few years.

Tina’s death has attracted much attention to the disappearance and murder of girls and women in Manitoba, especially among the Indigenous population. The report will be released a year after Raymord Cormier, who was charged with the murder, was acquitted.

Raymord Cormier was arrested in October 2014. In a year, he was charged with second-degree murder. However, due to lack of evidence, Cormier was acquitted in February 2018.

The withdrawal of the charges caused great indignation among the residents of the city, including various public organizations. They said that the city authorities did not pay enough attention to that poor girl either during her life or after her death.

During the three weeks before the girl’s death, four allegations of her missing were received. Fontaine was found sleeping in the street. A social worker took her to a hotel. That was the last time a girl was seen alive.

 On Tuesday the report will be made public in Powerview-Pine Falls. Perhaps, it will shed light on new facts in the story of this girl.
