The Missing Women Commission of Inquiry will travel to northern British Columbia, including Smithers, Moricetown and the Hazeltons. The Commission has invited area residents and interested organizations to participate. Additional forums may be held in the week of September 19.

The purpose of the northern B.C. forums is to give members of the communities an opportunity to provide input to the Commission on issues within its mandate. This will help inform the Commission’s report and recommendations for the effective initiation and conduct of investigations of missing and murdered women. It will also allow the Commission to take into account the situation in specific communities. The Commission believes it is important to hear directly from family members who have been most affected by the tragedy of murdered and missing women.

The forums are open to members of the public and the media.

Moricetown Community Forum: Wednesday September 14, 2011, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm, Moricetown Multiplex

Smithers Community Forum: Wednesday September 14, 2011, 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm, 3955 3rd Avenue, Smithers

Hazelton Community Forum: Thursday September 15, 2011, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, Gitanmaax Hall
