Quebec and Labrador insist on independent policing inquiry

MONTREAL — Indigenous leaders in Quebec say they are supportive of Wednesday’s announced national inquiry for missing and murdered indigenous women and girls.

MONTREAL — Indigenous leaders in Quebec say they are supportive of Wednesday’s announced national inquiry for missing and murdered indigenous women and girls.

The Assembly of First Nations for Quebec and Labrador also reiterated in a statement the need for an independent inquiry into the Surete du Quebec’s treatment of indigenous women in the province.

In 2015 an investigative report revealed dozens of indigenous women surrounding Val D’Or alleging they’d been raped and sexually assaulted by SQ officers.

AFN for Quebec and Labrador says they will continue to push for an independent inquiry in Quebec to examine policing in the province with indigenous women’s safety at the forefront.
