AFN passes resolution calling for missing women inquiry commissioner to step down

First Nations chiefs have passed a resolution calling for the head of the inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls to step down.

By a vote of 48 to 15, chiefs agathered at the AFN Special Chiefs Assembly voted to request a two-year extension to the inquiry and for the federal government to reset the process by appointing new leadership.

The Chief Commissioner of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls got a rough ride earlier in the day.

Marion Buller provided an update to chiefs about the commission’s work and was hoping to receive support for an extension of the process.

MKO Grand Chief Sheila North Wilson called on Buller to step down, saying the work has not put families first.

Buller told those gathered that she’s always open to constructive criticism, but says the work of the commission will continue.

The AFN Special Chiefs Assembly wraps up today.
