There have been at least 8 resignations and firings in last 2 months

November 21, 2017

Another lawyer for the National Inquiry into Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls has resigned.

Iqaluit lawyer Joseph Murdoch-Flowers sent a short email to reporters on Tuesday morning saying he was no longer with the inquiry.

“I have resigned from the inquiry,” said Murdoch-Flowers. “I will not comment further.”

Murdoch-Flowers is the third lawyer to leave the inquiry in the last two months. Lawyer Karen Snowshoe tendered her resignation this month and it will take effect at the end of December. Former MMIWG lead lawyer Susan Vella left in October.

The departure of Murdoch-Flowers raised the number of people who have either resigned, quit or have been laid off to at least 22.

Murdoch-Flowers is also the eighth departure that has hit the inquiry following the appointment of Debbie Reid as executive director. Reid is a former adviser to former Assembly of First Nations National Chief Phil Fontaine.
