The head of the National Inquiry looking into the issue of missing or murdered Indigenous women and girls says there is no possibility that she will step down.

Marion Buller was reacting to news that a coalition of families and survivors in Manitoba called for her, and the other three commissioners to “be brave” and resign so the federal government could “restart” the inquiry.

Buller said she did meet with a coalition in Ontario that had rescinded its support of the national inquiry.

“We heard a lot of anger a lot of frustration a lot of grief and pain we also heard some great recommendations for hope we carry forward in our work,” said Buller. “We were able to share some information regarding our work with them and we left that meeting with commitments on both sides to continue working together.”

  1. Maybe the commission is a buffer zone. Maybe it’s not doing what it’s supposed to? Maybe the families feel nothing is being done?
