The executive director of the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls has left her post.
The inquiry confirmed Debbie Reid’s departure in a statement on Thursday but said it could not discuss the details.
“While we cannot discuss the details of the matter, we thank Reid for her contributions,” the statement said.
Reid was hired in October but fell into controversy after the leaking of her introductory email to staff, which stated their primary role was to protect the inquiry’s commissioners from “criticism or surprises.”
