Missing, murdered indigenous women inquiry could target Indian Act


Commissioners of the inquiry into the disproportionate number of indigenous women and girls who have been murdered or gone missing in Canada will be given broad scope to examine any potential factor of the tragedy, including the Indian Act.

The terms of reference of the long-awaited probe, and the names of the five commissioners, will be announced early Wednesday morning by Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett, whose Liberal government campaigned on a promise to hold the inquiry that the former Conservative government refused to consider.
