The National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls were set to host a handful of regional advisory meetings this week in Northern BC, but those have been cancelled.
A spokesperson for the Commission of Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls wouldn’t give a reason as to why they were cancelled but that a panel is meeting in Whitehorse and a few other Yukon communities this week.
The first of the family hearings are expected May 29th in the Yukon Capital.
Meetings were expected to be held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.
The Commission says they expect to be in Northern BC in the future, potentially this summer, but there’s no timetable on when that will be.
The National inquiry is expected to spend three days in each of the chosen locations to gain advice on local matters, cultural practices and protocols.
