Trudeau’s government is not releasing a date to begin the missing and murdered indigenous women inquiry. Minister of Indigenous Affairs Carolyn Bennett addressed the ongoing concern for the slow progress of the inquiry.

“It will be when they are ready. I think this is going to be very important to do it right and to do it in a completely sensitive and new way.”

Bennett says that the commission will not impose on communities who chose not to participate in the inquiry.

“I think what they are going to do is make sure the contacts on the ground know that if anybody wants to talk to the commission they will be flown out and be able to give their testimony in a different way other than right at home in their community.”

To contact the inquiry anonymously, call the crisis line at 1-844-413-6649.
