It’s been over a year since the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls began its mandate.
But it hasn’t come without much criticism and controversy.
In this episode of InFocus, we talk about some of those issues such as how many staff have left or been let go, the lack of after-care for families testifying and the anticipation to a request for an extension.
Our panel include Hilda Anderson-Pryz, she is a Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls Liaison in northern Manitoba, APTN reporter Kathleen Martens and women’s advocate Lorelei Williams.
We also talk about our hope for the Inquiry to serve families affected by losing a loved one to this national tragedy.
