VANCOUVER —     British Columbia's first female aboriginal judge formally begins her new role today as chief commissioner of the inquiry looking into missing and murdered aboriginal women.

    Marion Buller says she has been personally touched by the issue, and has friends who disappeared or were killed.

    The inquiry will look into the disproportionately high rates of violence against aboriginal women and girls across Canada and ultimately produce a report with recommendations.

    Buller says she hopes those recommendations will be acted on and create positive change. (The Canadian Press)
