Under a storm of controversy, the Missing Women's Commission of Inquiry has begun in B.C., looking into police investigations of serial killer Robert Pickton and their handling of reports of women missing from Vancouver's DTES.

Your host, Laura Wood, speaks with Native Women's Association of Canada president and long-time activist Jeannette Corbiere Lavell about the many challenges facing the commission and those participating, and about what needs to be done to ensure respect and safety for Aboriginal women.
