Amid tight timelines and delays, commissioners with the missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls inquiry are recommending the creation of a national police task force that could review cold cases and reopen investigations. While the chief commissioner, Marion Buller, has vowed to study police conduct, and "investigate the investigators," the commissioners are now calling on the federal government and provinces work together to establish a new, separate body to which families can be referred if they feel they got short shrift from police in the first place. "Consistently, across Canada, families and survivors have told us they want answers, they have questions, and they desperately want answers to what happened to their loved ones, why investigations were stopped, why leads weren't followed up? It's vital for their healing that they do find out," Buller told reporters Wednesday. "We don't have a police force arm to work with us to help survivors and families get those answers." Qajaq Robinson, another commissioner, said the inquiry should be staffed with investigators with Indigenous knowledge, and the language capacity to reopen cases "in a proper way." "I believe there are a number of qualified Indigenous officers that could give these cases the attention they need," she said.  Robinson suggested families and survivors would have a say on who sits on the task force.

"Obviously, we've just read the report, and we're looking at the recommendations. It's a very interesting proposal and I look forward to working with my colleagues, and talking with the commission, hopefully very soon," she told reporters ahead of question period. The inquiry has long warned family members not to expect a full reinvestigation of individual files, or for the inquiry to assign blame for a failed investigation, prosecution, or search and rescue. It can, however, look at files to assess the competency of a police response, the investigation process and the behaviour of Crown attorneys.
