MMIW Inquiry should be led by indigenous women, report says
The federal government says the upcoming inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women and girls across Canada should be headed by indigenous women.
This was the summarized consensus released last week during the pre-inquiry consultation phase with the surviving families of missing or murdered indigenous women.
The report calls for a public and transparent inquiry and says all persons involved should have knowledge of human rights, Canadian law and policing in Canada.
A date has not been selected for the inquiry to begin, but is expected to be announced later this summer.
