Abstract: A high number of Indigenous women in Canada go missing or are murdered every year, in part due to underlying conditions such as homelessness, poverty, and poor education. Despite this reality and national need to take action, the media have been criticized for under representing and misrepresenting such cases. By using keywords to screen 463 out of over a thousand articles published by The Globe and Mail between 2014 and 2018, and subsequently manually coding them using data-driven codes, this major research paper (MRP) aims to compare the reporting (of The Globe and Mail between 2014 and 2018) of missing and murdered Aboriginal women in comparison with such cases involving White women. I can conclude that I have potentially observed a certain negative bias towards Aboriginal women, but that there does not seem to be any significant or clearly defined discrimination by The Globe and Mail during the aforementioned time frame.
