Thank you for replying back to our FOIL request,

We did have a few follow-up questions based on your response:
1. Is there a particular reason as to why you do not keep records based on race and/or ethnicity?
2. How do you categorize your missing people records?
3. Is this categorization system similarly to how you file murder records?
4. Are there any discussions on filing or recording missing and murdered records based on race and/or ethnicity?

Thank you in advance for your anticipated participation in the matter.

Sincerely,

Urban Indigenous Collective
