WHITEHORSE – Provincial and territorial premiers say there’s a high degree of support for an inquiry into missing and murdered indigenous women.
Alberta Premier Rachel Notley says individual provinces may have specific concerns, but there’s significant consensus among her colleagues going forward.
Quebec’s Philippe Couillard says his province wants to ensure that allegations in his province of police sexual abuse of aboriginal women are included.
He says it would be better to have one inquiry rather than two parallel investigations.
The federal government is expected to release details about the inquiry shortly.
