Sinclair inquiry resumes in April

  • Print

The inquiry into the death of Phoenix Sinclair will resume April 15.

The oft-delayed probe’s latest setback follows a conflict of interest involving one firm representing a number of social workers as well as the General Authority, their boss. New lawyers are taking over representation of the Authority at the inquiry and need time to prepare, commissioner Ted Hughes has said.

The inquiry was ordered by the province to examine how the little girl in and out of care from the time she was born in 2000 fell through Manitoba’s child-welfare safety net. She was murdered in 2005 by her mother and stepfather but her death wasn’t discovered by authorities until nine months later.

Public hearings began in September after several delays. Since then, the inquiry has been interrupted three more times by legal challenges. It is expected to run until July with a final report in December.
