Quebec to hold public inquiry into Val-d'Or allegations


The Quebec government is proposing a public inquiry into police relations in Val-d'Or, Que., more than a year after police officers there were accused of sexually assaulting aboriginal women.

The news comes as the federal inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women says its two-year mandate isn't long enough to delve into Val-d'Or.

In a letter obtained by Radio-Canada, the commission's executive director, Michèle Moreau, said that while the events in Val-d'Or will be part of the national narrative, the mandate of the federal inquiry does not allow for a thorough factual investigations into specific cases.
