    MONTREAL | The national Survey on women and girls missing and murdered aboriginal stop in Montreal this week.

    The commissioners will spend the week in the metropolis, Monday to Friday, at the hotel Bonaventure. Families and survivors will testify throughout the week.

    It will be the second passage of the commission of inquiry for the community hearings in Quebec, after a first visit to Mani-Utenam, near Sept-Îles, at the end of November.

    The commission of inquiry had claimed, last week, a contract extension of two years, which extended its duration until 31 December 2020. It assesses the cost of that expansion to about $ 50 million.

    The national Survey has been leaded, since its inception, by many departures of key members, including those of two of his generals, Debbie Reid and Michèle Moreau. The commissioner Marilyn Poitras, and other members of the commission have also resigned in the course of the road.

    To date, the commission has heard 763 the witnesses, while 630 people have said that they wanted to share their experiences with the commissioners.
