A Commission of Inquiry has been announced into the circumstances surrounding the women who vanished from the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Wallace Oppal will be the Commissioner and Art Vertlieb will be Commission Counsel.

We currently represent the families of Georgina Papin, Mona Wilson and Marnie Frey, three of the six women Robert Willie Pickton was convicted of killing. We also currently represent the families of Dianne Rock, Cara Ellis and Cynthia Dawn Feliks, three of the women Pickton was accused of killing in a separate indictment. It is not clear yet whether any of our clients will be granted standing to participate in the inquiry.

We expect to have more to say about this matter soon. No date has been fixed for the Inquiry.
