The Thompson Local News

The organization that represents 30 northern First Nations says that they can’t support an extension for the Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls unless it is restructured.


MKO Grand Chief Sheila North Wilson said that she needs to see evidence of change before she can support extending the inquiry. She said that the commissioners must prove they are willing to amend the structure and process of the Inquiry before it receives full MKO support.


Chief Wilson said that the Chief Commissioner, Marion Buller, should step down and that the position of chief commissioner should be removed, with all commissioners sharing the responsibilities.


She added that even though there are a number of families and survivors that are happy with their experience sharing their stories, MKO must also advocate for those who say their needs have not been met.


The inquiry is scheduled to be in Thompson later this month.
