In­quiry into miss­ing women to fol­low cus­toms

The Hamilton Spectator - - CANADA & WORLD -

The chief com­mis­sioner for the in­quiry into miss­ing and mur­dered women says Cana­di­ans should not ex­pect to see hear­ings like those that un­fold in court­rooms. Mar­ion Buller says the in­quiry will pro­vide a way for in­dige­nous peo­ple to tell their own sto­ries in their own way. Su­san Vella, the lead coun­sel for the study, says that, from a le­gal stand­point, the na­tional in­quiry will be un­like any­thing the coun­try has seen. She says the process must re­spect in­dige­nous cus­toms and tra­di­tions.
