national inquiry

There have been at least 25 resignations and firings since the inquiry was launched in 2016.
A national inquiry on missing and murdered Indigenous women would not be a truth and reconciliation commission, in the main because the violence being brought to light needs to have ended before the truth can be spoken about it. That is most certainly not the case here. We are still losing our relatives. The violence is ongoing. Although I do not believe a national inquiry will stop this violence, I do respect the wishes of many of the family members who need this discussion to happen, for these stories to be told in order to help them heal.
